Earlier, Hansal Mehta had said that he would make a biopic on Sridevi, and Vidya Balan was the actress in her mind to play the character. “I will always regret that I didn’t approach her and could not make a movie with her. But I will make a film on her. There are actors (who I have in my mind). I might approach Vidya Balan. I will make the film,” IANS had quoted Mehta as saying. Chaalbaaz was a 1989 comedy in which Sridevi played a double role written by Rajesh Mazumdar and Kamlesh Pandey the film was directed by Pankaj Parashar. Now it remains to be seen if this project goes on floor soon.
