Biopics are certainly the flavour of the season. If rumours are to be believed then National award winning filmmaker Hansal Mehta has plans to make a biopic on the life and times of late politician Sanjay Gandhi. The script in question was written by late Vinod Mehta.
Even though a movie on the life of Indira Gandhi was put on the backburner citing various authenticity issues, sources close to the 'Shahid' director suggest that he is very much interested in putting the life of the controversial politician on celluloid.
While filmmakers have always shied from making biopics on the lives of politicians fearing either demonizing or hero-worship angles in their content, Hansal is a gutsy filmmaker who has always made films mirroring real life.
In an interview Hansal did express his delight in being able to make the film on Sanjay Gandhi, but knowing the controversial nature of the subject, we wonder if this film will ever see the light of the day.
