Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in new film, Mother: The Indira
Gandhi Story, it has emerged. Filmmaker Krishna Shah will direct
the film, which will be released in two parts. The first part will
come up at the end of 2011 and part two about seven or eight months
later. Shah mentioned that the film would be multilingual. "It will
be in Hinglish," Variety quoted him as saying.
He added: "It's such an exciting, dramatic story. The canvas of
her life is too big to be contained in one film." The filming is
set to kick start in India in April next year. Some parts of the
film will also be shot in the U.S., U.K. and Russia. Shah has
apparently been writing the script for 23 years. When asked about
the budget he replied: "It''s bigger than Paranormal Activity and
less than Avatar."
