Huma Quereshi to play Meena Kumari?

Mumbai, Oct 2 : After directing films like "Bhatti On Chutti" and "Mittal Vs Mittal" among others, Karan Razdan now plans to make a biopic on the legendary actress Meena Kumari. The director is thinking of Huma Quereshi playing the Tragedy Queen but hasn't approached her yet.


Seen as an ideal Indian woman on the big screen, Meena Kumari earned the Tragedy Queen title after playing sad roles in films like "Daera" and "Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam". Co-incidentally, her personal life was full of pain and sorrow and she died of liver cirrhosis in 1972. She was 39.

"I have spent about four years to do the research and write the script. We have just finished the script and we will start shooting from early next year," Razdan told IANS.

"Meena Kumari's life and her journey has been very fascinating. We want someone who could justify her role and I think Huma Quereshi will fit the bill. I want to cast her for the biopic. We have not approached her so far, but my team will be talking to her soon," he added.

Meanwhile, Razdan is happy about his book "Tantra and the Tantrika".

"It's a very informative book about art and science. It's a fictional book," he said.
