Is Kalpana Lajmi capable enough to pen the biopic on Bhupen Hazarika?

Kalpana Lajmi, who was a long-time manager to the legendary singer/lyricist/film-maker Bhupen Hazarika, is now scripting the biopic on the late legend. However, it seems as if she is unable to finish writing the biopic. This is surprising, considering the fact that she is a highly acclaimed film-maker herself.

She told a leading daily “I am about to finish work on the screenplay of the biopic, and I am now looking for a co-writer to help me write the film. Mahesh Bhatt will be supervising all creative aspects of the film.” Why is she doubting her competency?

When asked this, she retorted “I can manage that. But once it is taken care of, I will be approaching people for funds and only then will I decide on the cast.”

A birdie tells us that the producer of the biopic -Pooja Bhatt- might play the role of Lajmi in the film. So will Pooja make a come-back to acting with this?
