Madhur Bhandarkar’s next inspired by the life of Marilyn Monroe
Mumbai: Known for his penchant of high dose of realism in commercial cinema, Bollywood’s celebrated director Madhur Bhandarkar’s upcoming flick is inspired by the life and times of yesteryears Hollywood siren Marilyn Monroe with Kareena Kapoor in lead.
News has it that Bhandrakar’s Marilyn Monroe biopic traces the life of a successful star whose career hits big time low after reaching the pinnacle of stardom. Talking to a news daily, a close acquaintance of Madhur Bhandarkar said, “Madhur has always been fascinated by Marilyn Monroe’s life. He has wanted to make a film on her since a long time, but things did not fall into place. Now, he is completely ready with the subject of this new film.”
“One can definitely say that film is inspired by Marilyn’s life. It may not be an exact representation of Marilyn’s life but there will be several elements from the late Hollywood star’s life.”
“Madhur didn’t want to go wrong with this film. Marilyn’s life was quite controversial and Madhur didn’t want to take any risk by portraying her in a wrong way,” said the source.
It is believed that Madhur has done a lot of research on the life of Marilyn Monroe as the source added, “He read a lot to know as much as he could about Marilyn. More importantly, he also watched many documentaries based on her life. He approached Kareena to play the lead role only when he was sure that he could translate every aspect of his research into a story.”
