“Kunal and Remo were keen on making films, while Baba wanted to make a web series. In fact, some discussions had started with Kunal, but those did not seem to materialise,” a source in the know informs a publication.

The source goes on to add, “Baba Yadav’s wife had approached Sarojji to get a web series made on her life, but she seemed to prefer the idea of a film. It seems she discussed the idea of the film with Remo also because she thought he and she shared a similar career graph, one that began from abject poverty and soared to the heights of glitz and glamour.”
