A source revealed, “He (Imtiaz) has acquired the rights from the family who owns a company called Madhubala Ventures Pvt. Ltd vide a Life Story Rights Assignment Agreement for the Hindi language only, under his company Window Seat Films LLP.”

Whether it is going to be a series or a film is yet unclear. The source further said that there is a lot of unexplored material on Madhubala’s life, as she had a 22-year long stint in the industry. Yet, the actress never won a single award and could only manage one Filmfare nomination before she passed away at the young age of thirty six.

As for who is going to play Madhubala’s role in her biopic, one can only speculate. Madhubala’s sister Madhu Brij Bhushan had said in an earlier interview that she would want Kareena Kapoor Khan to essay the late actress’ role. She said this at the unveiling of the actress’ statue in Madame Tussauds, Delhi.
