The web series will supposedly be produced by her husband Siddharth Roy Kapur.
‘I am trying to do a web series, which will be based on the life of Indira Gandhiji. As of now, we are trying to do it, but let’s see how it takes shape,’ Vidya said.
“I feel doing a web series involves a lot of work. While doing a web series, a lot of people associate themselves with it as compared to making a film. So, it takes a lot of time. But when I will do it, I will make sure that it turns out really well,” she added.
However, the project will take some time to take wings as the team for the show is still being put together. Therefore, a date has not been fixed yet. When asked whether the makers would be taking the permission of the Gandhi family before they begin filming, Balan said that they will not be seeking approval by them as they already have the book’s rights.
