Madhubala’s biopic in the works?

The actor’s iconic role as Anarkali in Mughal-e-Azam was described by critics as one of the finest performance in Indian cinematic history

Published: 03rd August 2022

Bollywood producer Tutu Sharma, who has produced over 25 films, has set his eyes on producing a biopic on yesteryear's star Madhubala. 

The movie, based on a book, will showcase Madhubala's rollercoaster life journey. 

Her iconic role as Anarkali in Mughal-e-Azam was described by critics as one of the finest performances in Indian cinematic history.

Known as one of the most beautiful actors ever, Madhubala had acted in 60+ films successfully.

"Right now it's too early to give more information. I'm honoured to present this legendary life story of one of my all-time favourite performers. I am looking forward to making this a magnum opus,” said Tutu.

Madhubala was the screen name of Mumtaz Jehan Begum Dehlavi. In a career spanning two decades, she acted in around 60 movies and earned a reputation as one of the highest-earning film stars of her time in India. She died tragically young, at just 36, in 1969.
