This is indeed the season of biopics in Bollywood. After Farhan Akhtar kicked off with super successful ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’, what followed was Priyanka Chopra depicting the hardships faced by five-times boxing champion MC Mary Kom. Now, from what we hear, it has been reported that daddy’s proud girl, Sonam Kapoor might be in for a biopic too.
According to a leading daily, the chic-looking actress might be roped in by the makers to play none other than the classic Indian painter Amrita Sher-Gil on big screen. The reports further mention that talks have begun between Sher-Gil’s family and Sonam, so that the latter could prepare well for her role.
Born to a Punjabi-Sikh father and a Hungarian-Jewish mother, Sher-Gil was often referred to as the Frida Kahlo of India. The lady is also seen as one of the most expensive woman painters of the country.
It will be interesting to see how Sonam portrays such an intense character on the big screen. We are waiting on that!
