After Sanju, another biopic based on an actor's life is in the making. And this time, a biopic on the legendary actress Madhubala is in the pipeline. The buzz is that the late veteran actress's sister Madhur Brij Bhushan is looking forward to make the movie.

However, Madhur Brij Bhushan didn't mention too many details related to the biopic. She said that the movie will be produced by her close friends. "I am going in for a biopic on my sister, which will be produced by my very dear friends, very soon. It's my humble request to all the well-wishers of Madhubala and whosoever is connected with Bollywood or elsewhere to please not attempt a biopic or anything else based on my sister's life without my permission," Bhushan said to a leading news agency.

"The details will be known to her fans and to all concerned when the right time comes. So, please try to avoid any kind of unpleasant situation," she added.

Ever since Madhubala's wax statue was uncovered at the Madame Tussauds museum in Delhi, Madhur has been making conscious efforts to make the biopic on the late actress.

"A number of people from Bollywood and otherwise have approached Bhushan repeatedly over the past few years to acquire the rights to make a film on Madhubala's life. But she has always been clear that full justice should be done to her sister's life and that's why a film should be made in a beautiful manner. She thinks this is the right time to go ahead with it," a source said to a leading news agency.

The director and the actors for the biopic are yet to be finalized and the names of the same will be revealed by the end of the year. "Bhushan won't be directing the film for sure. Only the top names are going to be involved with the film," the source continued.

The late Madhubala who was crowned as The Venus Of Indian Cinema and The Beauty With Tragedy is still remembered for her memorable films like Mughal-e-Azam, Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi, Mr and Mrs 55 and Mahal.
