Madhur Bhandarkar is renowned for delivering movies with strong female leads. He has released movies like Chandni Bar and Fashion to Heroine, which all drew us into the harsh reality and were warmly received by both the critics and the audience.
The director is currently preparing to start shooting a movie based on the true story of a Kashmiri female singer who was murdered by terrorists. His original option for the lead actress was Kangana Ranaut, and Feroz Nadiadwala was producing it.
However, now we got to know that there seems to be a hurdle as the film is not taking off anytime soon because of the poor performances of recent theatrical films including the dismal results of women-centric films like Dhaakad and Shabaash Mithu.
The producer or director or actress is certain to deny this as usual by holding high grounds but this is from a trusted source.
