Vidya Balan Will Play the Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi’s Role
After an impressive span of career that has been going on for 15 years now, Vidya Balan is now ready to take on a major role based on one of the most powerful politicians of India’s history, Indira Gandhi. The actress will portray the late Indian Prime Minister in a web series produced by Ronnie Screwvala and based on the book Indira: India’s Most Powerful Prime Minister written by Sagarika Ghose.
The series is in its very early production stages so the date of release has not yet been disclosed. As to whether the creators of the show have the Gandhi family’s consent to do the series is a moot point since the actress said that they have the book’s rights so they do not need to get the family’s permission.
