Tigmanshu Dhulia is going to make a movie on yesteryear’s Tragedy Queen, Meena Kumari. And Kangna Ranaut is being lined up to play the lead role of Meena Kumari in the movie. The film is an adaptation of late journalist, Vinod Mehta’s book, Meena Kumari: The Classic Biography. The actress passed away in her prime but her performance in films like Pakeezah, Saahib Bibi Aur Ghulam and Dil Apna aur Preet Parai made her a revered icon .
The film will start by the end of this year.”Kangana is looking at her date diary and is hoping to accommodate the film in August-September. The research has begun and a formal announcement will be made soon,” adds the source.
