    BollywoodHungama.com News

    Anurag Kashyap introduced Kalki Koechlin to the world of Bollywood with Dev D and eventually the two tied the knot in 2011. However, soon news of their marriage hitting rock bottom started surfacing.

    Though initially the couple remained mum about the trouble in paradise, the duo later announced that they have separated. But, despite the separation, the two maintained that they are trying to sort out the matter. Now, Kalki has opened up about her relation with Anurag and stated that they have filed for divorce which is in progress and they will soon officially be separated. Maintaining that she has come to terms about her relationship status with the director - producer, she further added that she is in a happy space now.
    She lived a tumultuous life, filled with passion, romance and a tragic grandeur. And now Meena Kumari's life would be chronicled in cinema by none other than Tigmanshu Dhulia whose Sahib Bibi Aur Gangster was inspired by Meena Kumari's best-known work Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam. For the first time Tigmanshu Dhulia talks about why he has chosen National Award winner Kangna Ranaut to play Meena Kumari.

    Dhulia, who is currently wrapping up a film called Yaara, says he chose Kangna because she was the only actress who could convey the tragic pathos of Meena Kumari's personality. "There is a profound sadness in Kangna's eyes, the same quality that we saw in Meena Kumari's eyes. And that voice! When I heard Kangna Ranaut in her debut film Gangster I was reminded of Meena Kumari. The same haunted and haunting quality, a voice that suggests pain grief, wisdom and seduction! I knew then and there that if I ever make a film on Meena Kumari it would have to be Kangna who plays the legendary actress."

    Dhulia's biopic would be adapted from the late journalist Vinod Mehta's biography on Meena Kumari.

    Says the filmmaker, "I've bought the rights of the book long ago. It is a fascinating tale of a life lived on the edge. As I read the account, I was more and more convinced that Kangna Ranaut was the right person for the part."

    Dhulia is now looking at the chapters from Meenaji's very colourful life that he will put on screen. Besides her husband filmmaker Kamal Amrohi, the legendary actress was said to be close to several men including writer-director Gulzar, and the actors Raj Kumar and Dharmendra.

    Says Dhulia, "I don't know which aspects of her life I'll go into. At the moment I don't have a script or a studio to back the project. But I am making the film for sure, though not right away."

    In 1981, the mighty Sohrab Modi had made an appalling Meena Kumari film entitled Meena Kumari Ki Amar Kahani starring starlet Dolly in the title role while another actress called Sona had played Madhubala in the same film.

    Surely Tigmanshu Dhulia would do a better job of the legendary actress' life story.
