Madhubala’s sister Madhur Brij says she wants to see Kareena Kapoor Khan play the late actor role if a biopic is made. The reason behind this she has the same naughtiness that the former used to have.
On Thursday, Madhur Brij said on the sidelines of the unveiling of the wax figure of the late actor by Madame Tussauds, Delhi, “There was a time when I wanted Madhuri Dixit to play the role of Madhubala in her biopic but now it has to be Kareena Kapoor Khan as she has the same naughtiness that Madhubala used to have and she is a beautiful actor too.”
She also said about Madhubala, “Madhubala was very simple at home. She was elder but never bossy and she used to encourage all of us to come in films.”
- Born in 1933
- She regarded as the most epic female celebrity of Hindi cinema.
- She worked in Hindi Cinema films between 1942 and 1962.
- Her famous films are Mahal (1949), Amar (1954), Mr. and Mrs. 55 (1955), Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi (1958), Mughal-e-Azam (1960) and Barsaat Ki Raat (1960).
She told IANS that, “The one thing that film actors of today can learn from Madhubala is to see how bravely a girl fought who knew that she had just 2 years left to live, she never gave up her hopes and expectations. She always used to think that she will be fine soon, will get her life back and will continue to work.”
She added, “The actors of today are very successful but they should learn strength, patience from her.”
And, “Very few films of her did good business at the box office while the rest of her films did not do well but I am surprised to see that she was called the Venus of Indian screen. I feel happy looking at this figure but I am upset also from inside as I want to ask God that why he gave her such a short life. A girl who was affectionate, nice, and beautiful and a good soul has gone so early. Had she been alive, she would have worked in much more bigger films than Mughal-e-Azam.”
