At a recent award function, veteran actress Sharmila Tagore revealed that she would like a biopic to be made on her late husband and legendary cricketer Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi. She mentioned how Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt would be perfect for the roles, however there is no talk about the film being made. But when the Dear Zindagi actress was asked what she thinks about Sharmila's revelation her reply was quite apt.
Alia said, "First of all, it's strange, I met her just a while back. When we were shooting in Singapore, Sharmila mam and Javed sir had come there for a poetry recitation event. I couldn't meet Javed sir, but I met ma'am and we had a good conversation. She even told me that she liked Kapoor & Sons. I'll take it back to what I said earlier, when legends like Sharmila mam and Shah Rukh Khan, when they say such thing, it really feels good. Not only coz you get appreciation mil rahi hai, but also coz this is not just an industry but a family and when your relatives and elders praise you, they are also motivating you and it feels very touching. So I'll only say thank you and I hope if I get this opportunity, I'll perform it well." Check out her reaction in the video right here:
Earlier, Sharmila Tagore had told reporters on the red carpet of the Lux Golden Rose awards, "Yes, of course I would like a movie to be made on Mansoor Ali Khan. If someone really directs it properly, and with proper research, I think I would like it. I think his life has got a lot of things, about the accident, about losing his father and playing cricket with such a handicap. " When asked whom she would like to see in the role of Pataudi, the actress said, "I really don’t know. Somebody who looks like Tiger. May be Ranbir Kapoor or somebody in the family." And when asked whom she would like to play her on the screen, Sharmila asked, "That’s a real challenge. What about Alia Bhatt?"
