A web series on the legendary actress Meena Kumari is in the works. It will be produced by Almighty Motion Picture.
It will be based on author Ashwini Bhatnagar’s book titled ‘Starring… Mahjabeen as Meena Kumari’.
Almighty Motion Picture Producer Prabhleen Kaur said in a statement:
“A dream comes true for me as nothing is more beautiful and larger than life than the name Meena Kumari herself. God resides in detailing is the mantra that guides us at Almighty Motion Picture, and a subject of this magnitude warrants research. The best names, second to none from vintage Hindi film journalism have been hired to provide authentic research to us. We intend to start with a web series and then move onto a feature film on the gifted actress for whom the word tragedy queen was coined, hence we are not in any hurry.”
The author also reacted to the news:
Almighty Motion Picture has only produced MX Player’s Mastram so far. It recently also acquired the rights to create a web series on ‘The Vijay Mallya Story’, which narrates the tale of the controversial tycoon.
