There are reports all over the internet suggest Raveena Tandon will play the former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.
But sources close to the project dismiss this line of thought as nothing but a figment of the imagination.
A source very close to the project informs this writer that the similarities between Raveena Tandon ’s character and Mrs Gandhi are skin-deep. “They are both powerful politicians. But that’s it. We are not interested in getting into politics in our cinema. Yash is very clear on doing away with references to Indira Gandhi.”
Interestingly R Raveena Tandon ‘s contemporary Manisha Koirala was all set to play India Gandhi in a film directed by N Chandra.Manisha had even got her prosthetic nose for her part. But that project never happened.We now hear of Vidya Balan playing Mrs Gandhi in a webseries to be produced by her husband Sidharth Roy Kapur.
