The filmmaker, Rajiv Menon has reportedly planned a lavish musical and it seems he is in talks with several financiers!
Insiders reveal that Vidya is very busy these days, “Vidya has almost wrapped up Raj Kumar Gupta’s Ghanchakkar with Emraan Hashmi. Post that, she will work on Shaadi Ke Side Effects with Farhan Akhtar and is likely to start either Sujoy Ghosh’s next or the biopic.”
Vidya who is being very tight-lipped about the project said, “I can’t reveal much as I’m bound by contract. All I can say is that I’m doing a biopic. When the time is right, the makers will make the necessary announcement.” Vidya Balan is supposedly a great fan of the singer.
