Vidya Balan is one dedicated actress and clearly studies the roles before she signs any film. This time, however, the actress seems to have made an exception which of course is coming to us as a surprise. The actress has been finalised to play Geeta Bali in her biopic called Bhagwan Dada Ek Albela. Although the film is in Marathi, we would have expected more research by the actress on her role.
Shammi Kapoor and Geeta Bali’s son Aditya Raj Kapoor is now disappointed as the makers did not even once seek his permission before making this film. He was quoted saying, “We know nothing about it except what has appeared in the public domain. Which is fine. I am sure the makers are capable of doing justice to the film. But I could have told them so much about Geeeta ji. No one knew her the way I did. I was only 9 when she died. But she left an indelible impression on me and my sister.”
The son is miffed but is confident that the makers would do justice to the film and also feels Vidya is very capable to play the role. While we don’t doubt that either, it would be a wise decision to take inputs from those related to Geeta Bali to make it more appealing and authentic, right?
