Amidst widespread speculations about a Meena Kumari biopic being developed, it has been reported that celebrity fashion designer Manish Malhotra will make his directorial debut with this project. The buzz is that actress Kriti Sanon is being considered to portray the iconic actress on screen. In a recent conversation, Manish Malhotra has now confirmed that he is indeed helming the Meena Kumari biopic and is actively engaged in crafting the film’s script.

In a recent interview with Film Companion, renowned designer Manish Malhotra has officially announced his foray into filmmaking. He confirmed that he will be directing a biopic centered around the life of the legendary actress Meena Kumari.

Manish said, “I don’t know how it got out but it is happening. We are still working on the script. The script is key, always. I have been reading her books. The film is based on her books. I have always been fascinated by Meena Kumari.”

Manish revealed that he drew inspiration from the veteran actress Rekha, which motivated him to create a film based on the life of Meena Kumari.

He said, “Rekha told me once that you know when you turn 40, you will understand the genius of Meena Kumari. And that is true. But I was young and I was busy working but when I turned 40 I not only understood the genius of Meena Kumari but even Nargis ji and Dilip Kumar and Guru Dutt. I started watching that cinema and understanding it so much better. I think Meena Kumari is phenomenal with her expressions, the way she uses her eyes and her adaa.”

In an intriguing turn of events, Manish also showcased his styling skills by dressing actress Rekha for the cover of a prestigious international magazine. Rekha looked exceptionally stunning and emanated an aura of royalty in the outfits curated by him.
