Many directors wanted to make biopic on Kishore Kumar: Nikhil Advani

MUMBAI: Even as Anurag Basu is making a biopic on legendary Bollywood singer-actor Kishore Kumar, director Nikhil Advani says that "numerous directors" have mulled the idea before.

"I have always been interested in a script or idea which had come in the minds of numerous directors before -- to make a biopic on Kishore Kumar. Ranbir (Kapoor) is doing that now. Kishore Kumar is an exceptional find among the creative artists of our country, on whose life a biopic would be immensely exciting," said Advani at the screening of a Marathi film.

The film has not gone on the floors as yet, despite Basu being ready with the script. He had even stated that he was feeling restless with the film stuck due to Kapoor's busy line-up of films.
According to reports, the legendary singer's family earlier had reservations about giving their nod for the biopic. But they have now given their approval.

Meanwhile, Basu is helming a TV show ‘Stories by Rabindranath Tagore’ for Epic channel.
