Tigmanshu Dhulia’s last release Paan Singh Tomar starring Irrfan Khan received critical acclaim and also set the cash registers ringing.
Dhulia is now planning a period film based on the life of Begum Joanna Nobilis Sombre aka Begum Samru. Initially, it was reported that Rani Mukerji was all set to play the protagonist in the venture, but the indications are that Kareena Kapoor may replace her as Dhulia feels she will do justice to the role. The modalities are fast being worked out. The film is expected to go on floors by September or October this year.
Begam Samru was a nautch girl of 18th century India. She later became an influential figure on the political canvas of 18th and 19th century India. A strong and powerful woman, Begum Samru married a European and became the ruler of a principality near Meerut.
