Vidya Balan to do a biopic on controversial author Kamala Das!
One must say that Vidya Balan has started 2016 on a high note. After just one release 'Hamari Adhuri Kahani' last year, the talented actress has signed a couple of new projects this year. This includes Sujoy Ghosh's thriller 'Kahaani 2', Hindi remake of 'Rajkahini and the latest film that she has bagged is a biopic on the controversial author Kamala Das where she will be playing the title role.

The film will be a Hindi-Malayalam bilingual and will be helmed by Malayalam film-maker Kamal. Kamala Das who later became Kamala Surayya, was a poet, author, columnist who wrote extensively about female sexuality. She converted to Islam at the age of 67. Vidya's film will explore her life story in three parts - the first part will talk about her marriage at the age of 15 to a banker; the second part about her autobiography Ente Katha (My Story); the third part about her conversion to Islam at 67 and traces of her life after that.

Director Kamal was quoted as saying to a leading daily, "Vidya is one of the first few actresses who explored female sexuality unapologetically in films like 'Ishqiya' and 'The Dirty Picture'. She was the perfect choice for the role since the beginning. I first approached her for the Malayalam film but now we will be shooting it as a bilingual, in Malayalam and Hindi simultaneously."

Reportedly to prep up for her role Vidya has already started reading the writer's autobiography and searching for translated versions of her short stories published in Malayalam. The film is slated to roll by this year end and will be shot in Germany, Spain and France.
