Ritesh Batra to direct Vidya Balan’s web series on Indira Gandhi

Starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Sanya Malhotra, it won acclaim both in India and internationally. “Ritesh is directing the series,” a source close to the development said. Batra’s Photograph released earlier this year. It is taking a long time to put it together as there is so much material. Advertising

Vidya has bought the rights to Sagarika Ghose’s book Indira: India’s Most Powerful Prime Minister on which the series will be based. So it is taking time but let’s see. Advertising

“I am doing a web series and it is my debut, Ronnie Screwvala is producing it. I hope it doesn’t take longer,” the actor had said. Vidya, who was seen in the recently released film Mission Mangal, had earlier told PTI in an interview, the project has been under development for a while courtesy its subject. The critical consensus reads, “Photograph enriches the familiar arc of its love story by refreshingly refracting its characters’ budding bond through a socio-cultural prism.”

Comment(s) The web series requires a lot of work. It scored 80 per cent on review aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes.
