A little birdie tells us that Kalpana Lajmi intends to cast Irrfan Khan in her upcoming biopic based on Bhupen Hazarika’s life. The script is being written by Mahesh Bhatt and co-written by Lajmi herself. The film will throw light on the relationship between Bhupen and Lajmi, spanning over four decades. Kalpana Lajmi was Bhupen’s manager for quite some time.
Lajmi and Irrfan have refused to confirm the news. Lajmi said, “We are still working on the script. I can talk about it only after the first week of October. Right now I don’t have anyone in mind.” Irrfan on being asked if he will play the role of the National award winning musician, says, “I am not aware.”
The film will be produced by Pooja Bhatt and is titled Dhumuha: The Storm. Whether Irrfan will do another biopic or not is still unanswered. Let’s wait for more updates on this one!
