Much has been speculated about an impending biopic on Sridevi that will be made by the late actors' husband and film producer Boney Kapoor. And now; if the industry grapevine is to be believed Boney Kapoor has approached Sridevi's former competitor and the evergreen actress Madhuri Dixit Nene to play Sridevi in the biopic.


A certain source close to these developments has been quoted by a leading daily saying," Really, if you look at the choices available to Boney, there is only Madhuri Dixit-Nene who has the stature, grace, range and dancing abilities to play Sridevi."


Also it may be recalled that Bollywood's Dhak Dhak girl has a long-standing and close relation with Boney and Anil Kapoor as she has worked with the duo in some of the best films of her and Anil's career being Tezaab and Beta.


The same source further revealed," Also, Boney and his brother Anil have always been very closely associated with Madhuri ever since she worked with Anil in iconic films like Beta and Tezaab. Madhuri seems like the feasible fit to play Sridevi." 


While many had been expecting Sridevi's daughter; Jhanvi Kapoor, who made her debut last year in Karan Johar's Dhadak, a remake of the cult Marathi film Sairaat, to play her mother in her biopic; a certain friend close to the Kapoor family feels Jhanvi is too raw to pull off such a huge responsibility. 


The friend was quoted saying," Sridevi would have never wanted a biopic to be made. And even if she had, she would have wanted her daughter Janhvi to play Sridevi. But Janhvi is too raw and too close to the tragic death of her mother to play her."


Well, only time can tell if Madhuri will agree to play the part if approached, considering the fact the there has been constant comparisons between the two actresses in their heydays and the rumors of a professional rivalry between the two is no news! But Madhuri certainly is one actress who can give justice to the versatile south beauty and diva, Sridevi.
