Yes, it’s true that a film based on Bollywood’s evergreen diva Rekha will be made soon. While that’s no surprise, the interesting bit is the actresses in the reckoning to play the legendary lady. The actresses being considered for the role include Rani Mukherji, Bipasha Basu and well, Sridevi!
The film has been named Sitaare and will be directed by Kapil Sharma.
“It will be a film on Rekha where the mysteries surrounding her will be revealed. Kapil wants to make a film based on the industry. He is considering some top actresses for the role of Rekha and other vital characters that have come in Rekha’s life from Big B to Kiran Kumar to Vinod Mehra and even Jaya Bachchan,” a source said.
Director Kapil Sharma, however, doesn’t want to reveal too much. “Yes, I am making a film on a controversial actress who has been an ex number one in the industry. However, I am not comfortable talking about it now. All I can say is that the film is called Sitaare and has the backdrop of Bollywood. The film has an ensemble cast and will have 7-8 major characters. I am still to finalise the lead actors,” the director said, adding, “It is a story that I wanted to tell. I have been an industry kid and I want to unveil the mystery behind the actress. It is the journey of the actress, which is so interesting and colourful. It is her iconic career, her relationships and the ups and downs in her life.”
It is hoped the characters and the script live up to the expectations of a film on Rekha and that they don’t compromise on the masala in the actress’ life!
