Binodini Dasi also known as Notee Binodini was a courtesan-turned-actress. Earlier, this year there were reports that filmmaker Pradeep Sarkar is all set to direct her biopic and it will star none other than Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
Recently, while talking to Mid-day, Sarkar gave an update on the film and stated that they are hoping to start rolling in March next year. He said, “The writing is in progress. While Aishwarya has given her nod, I have not approached other actors because I am waiting for the crisis to abate. I hope the vaccine is developed by March so that we can start shooting.”
Well, the filmmaker is simultaneously working on two other scripts. While one is a psychological thriller, the other one is a dark comedy. Sarkar said, “These two scripts are ready and bound, but I am unable to give proper narrations to actors over Zoom calls. So, we are waiting for things to open up. Before Binodini, we may focus on one of them.”
Meanwhile, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan currently has one film in her kitty and that is Mani Ratnam’s Tamil movie Ponniyin Selvan which also stars Karthi, Vikram, Jayam Ravi, Trisha, Vikram Prabhu, Aishwarya Lekshmi, and Sobhita Dhulipala. The actress’ last Bollywood film was the 2018 release Fanney Khan which had failed to make a mark at the box office.

A couple of months ago, Aishwarya also tested positive for COVID-19 along with Abhishek Bachchan and Amitabh Bachchan. But after a few days, she was tested negative for it. While Big B has started working again, Aishwarya and Abhishek are yet to get back on the sets.
