Madhur Bhandarkar’s upcoming film will be based on America’s glamour doll, Marilyn Monroe with Kareena Kapoor in the lead role.
A source close to Madhur says that the director has always expressed a fascination with Marilyn Monroe’s life and has wanted to make a film of her for quite a while. Although the film won’t be the exact replica of Marilyn’s life, there will be several elements from the late Hollywood star’s life.
Madhur is aware that the actress led a controversial life and he didn’t want to take a risk by portraying her in a negative light. Because of this, he has done extensive research on the actress. “He read a lot to know as much as he could about Marilyn. More importantly, he also watched many documentaries based on her life,” says the source.
Madhur is currently speaking to many male actors to see who will star opposite Kareena.
Marilyn Monroe was an American actress, singer and model. She is noted for her performances in films like The Asphalt Jungle, All about Eve and her comic roles in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and How to Marry a Millionaire.
Marilyn was also known for her romantic escapades. She was married three times and was said to be involved with Frank Sinatra. There were also rumours that she was involved with President John F Kennedy and his brother Senator Robert Kennedy.
