Swara Bhasker To Star In Biopic

Actress Swara Bhasker will soon be seen in the works of a biopic. Whose you ask? News has it that the Veere Di Wedding actress will be making a biopic on none other than Krishna Sen. The movie will be produced under Bhasker’s new banner, Kahaaniwaaley.

The story is to be based on the true life story of Krishna, whose alias was Sweety Sen. The untitled-biopic is going to tell the story of a woman who successfully pretended to be a man and married two women.

The production banner Swara launched has been in partnership with her brother, Ishan. With Swara set to star as the lead of the film, a statement explained that the movie is to go on the floors this year itself as the makers have already got the rights.  

Talking about the project, Ishan said, "Having portrayed several unconventional, challenging and bold characters, we were looking for a story idea for Swara that would match the performance potential of her previous films. Krishna Sen's real life story is the perfect choice to portray a mysterious real-life character as well as bring a strangely true story to life on the big screen,”

He added: "We want to explore the psychology of this really interesting character. Swara's 'bindaas' attitude and the ability to take on challenging roles make her an ideal choice to play the title role in the biopic."

Ishan also talked about the production house itself, which is called Kahaaniwaaley Entertainment and Media Ventures Pvt Ltd,saying, "The basic idea is to support films, scripts and filmmakers that have these great stories but for one reason or the other are struggling to tell them."
