Sharmila Tagore bats for a film on Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi
Actress Sharmila Tagore is of the view that in the season on biopics in Bollywood, a film on her late husband and former India cricket skipper the charismatic Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi would be a apt and she is in no hurry to see that on the big screen.
Veteran actress Sharmila Tagore says a film tracing the life of her late husband and Indian cricketing legend Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi aka Tiger Pataudi, would make for a cinematic treat.
From "Bhaag Milkha, Bhaag", "Mary Kom", “Sultan”, “Azhar” to “M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story", biopics on sports stars seems like the flavour of the season in Bollywood. But the actress says she is not in a hurry to see her husband’s life being portrayed on the silver screen.
“I am sure a lot of people are thinking about it (film based on Tiger Pataudi's life). I am sure when the time is right, they will... I think it would make a very good film, but only when the time is right,” Sharmila told IANS over phone from Hyderabad.
Asked about which actor from the younger lot she thinks can do justice to the role, she said: "There are wonderful actors and I think we are very blessed in that case. So I am sure we will find someone good.”
The multiple National Award winning actress shared her views with IANS when she came on board for detergent Ariel India’s Dads #ShareTheLoad Movement with her daughter Soha Ali Khan.
They came together to address the prejudice of household inequality at an event in Hyderbad on Thursday.
The movement has over the past month, received local and international support from the likes of Pankaj Kapur, Supriya Pathak and Tabu to Sheryl Sandberg and Melinda Gates.
From being a daring actress who flaunted a bikini in "An Evening in Paris" to delivering power-packed performances in cult movies like "Aradhana", the actress has shattered various stereotypes in the film industry during her career.
She says she came on board for the #ShareTheLoad Movement because she believes in this notion.
She said: “I believe in this campaign because it is really reaching out to a certain segment of the society. It reacheS out to men to request them to share the load, which I think is very important." (IANS)
