It has been confirmed that Katrina Kaif will play Madhubala in Anurag Basu’s biopic on the late singer, while Ranbir Kapoor will essay the character of Kishore Kumar.
Katrina has already started her preparation for the film by watching Madhubala’s films like Mughal e Azam, Chalti Ka Naam Gadi and Mahal.
UTV will be producing the film after purchasing the rights for it from Kishore’s surviving wife, Leena Chandavarkar.
Kishore married Madhubala in a civil wedding ceremony in 1960, but the marriage ended when she passed away in 1969. His marriage to actress Yogeeta Bali lasted two years and he was then married to Leena Chandavarkar from 1980 until his death.
