A biopic on late actress Smita Patil on the cards?

Late actress Smita Patil left an indelible impression on cinephiles’ mind with her short but exceptional acting career. Regarded as one of the finest actresses of Bollywood, Patil started her acting career in the year 1974 and went on to star in such outstanding films as Manthan (1977), Bhumika (1977), Aakrosh (1980), Chakra (1981), Chidambaram (1985), Mirch Masala (1985), Ghulami (1985) before breathing her last in 1986.

Ideas are being thrown around for a biopic of the late actress and her son Prateik Babbar is quite excited. The young actor, who will soon be seen in Anubhav Sinha’s forthcoming film Mulk, revealed he had been approached by many filmmakers about a biopic of his mother.

“Yes people have expressed interest in making my mother’s biopic, and that excites me. She was a pure soul with such a short life, and I think it would be nice to see her life on screen,” said Prateik.

He added, “I am okay with it, but I don’t know if my family is. I am not the person who can give the project the green signal, it has to be a collective decision. It’s a sensitive but beautiful thought.”
