Last year, filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar made an attempt of portraying the plague of Indian emergency (June 1975- March 1977) as issued by Gandhi, the then PM, in his movie ‘Indu Sarkar’. The film met with lukewarm response. This time around, another film on her story is in making. The rights of author Sagarika Ghose’s book ‘Indira, India’s Most Powerful PM’ have been acquired by Roy Kapur Films. The titular role will be played by Vidya Balan.

From ‘Kahaani 2’ to ‘Begum Jaan’ and then ‘Tumhri Sulu’, Vidya has been on a roll. This surely comes in as a pleasant surprise for her fans!
