Fashion designer Manish Malhotra has confirmed that he is working on a biopic based on the life of legendary actress Meena Kumari. In an interview, Malhotra mentioned that the scripting process is currently underway for the highly anticipated project.

Manish Malhotra recently talked about Meena Kumari's biopic and shared some details about it. When asked about his inspiration for taking up this project, the designer revealed that veteran actress Rekha played a major role in motivating him. Further details about the film, including the cast and release date, are yet to be announced.

In an interview with Film Companion, Manish Malhotra said, “I don’t know how it got out but it is happening. We are still working on the script. The script is key, always. I have been reading her books. The film is based on her books. I have always been fascinated by Meena Kumari.”

He revealed that Rekha inspired him to go



ahead with the Meena Kumari project. He added, “Rekha told me once that you know when you turn 40, you will understand the genius of Meena Kumari. And that is true. But I was young and I was busy working but when I turned 40 I not only understood the genius of Meena Kumari but even Nargis ji and Dilip Kumar and Guru Dutt. I started watching that cinema and understanding it so much better. I think Meena Kumari is phenomenal with her expressions, the way she uses her eyes and her adah.”

Reportedly, Kriti Sanon has been signed for the Meena Kumari biopic. Speaking of her, he said, “All I know is that she is a very good and beautiful actress. Whenever I meet her, I will tell her I am sorry if whatever I said hurt her. All that I said was for the person who is going to do the film, be it you or someone else. I’ll tell her you are a very popular and good actress and you might think of me as an enemy, but I am not one. Please treat me as your friend and advisor.”
