After impressing the audience with her sterling performance in T-Series’ Tumhari Sulu, award-winning actress Vidya Balan is reportedly joining forces with filmmaker Jyoti Kapur Das for a gangster-drama film.

“Set in the murky world of crime, the drama sees the leading lady as a grey character. The role is that of a strong-minded woman who is almost a crime overlord. After Jyoti finished penning the script, Vidya was the first name that came to her mind. Given the kind of author-backed roles that she has done, the actress would be a perfect fit for the character. The actress also has the Indira Gandhi biopic in the pipeline. It all depends on when she starts the biopic. She is also in talks for another project. But if all goes as planned, the crime drama will go on floors later this year,” reveals a source.

However, when filmmaker Jyoti Kapur Das was contacted for confirmation, he said, “It would be an absolute dream to work with her, nothing like that is happening just yet.”

Meanwhile, Vidya Balan will next be seen in a film based on the life of former Prime Minister of India, Indira Gandhi.
