Kriti Sanon, a beloved Bollywood actress, has established herself as a talented performer and gained immense popularity among the audience. Reports surfaced earlier suggesting that she was offered the role of Meena Kumari in a biopic, marking fashion designer Manish Malhotra’s directorial debut. However, it seems that the film is facing a setback due to a controversy. Recent revelations indicate that Tajdar Amrohi, the son of Meena Kumari’s late husband Kamal Amrohi, strongly opposes the idea of this biopic.
Here’s what Meena Kumar’s husband Kamal Amrohi’s son has to day
In a conversation with Koimoi, Tajdar Amrohi expressed his extreme anger, criticizing certain individuals in the industry. He vehemently stated, “Some industrywalas have become absolutely bankrupt and thieves . They have no right to barge in and step into my territory and domain. They are not just thieves but also DACOITS.”
Tajdar Amrohi rightfully believes that nobody should create a film about Meena Kumari without his permission. He expresses, “She(Meena Kumari) was my mom and Kamal Amrohi was my dad. Please ask those people to make a movie on their own parents and I’m sure they will not do so, for they were nobody. Anyway, what they will make would be based on all lies.”
Tajdar believes that he possesses the true understanding of his parent’s marriage. He shares, “Baba (father Kamal Amrohi) passed away twenty nine years ago and Choti Ammi (mother Meena Kumari) went fifty years ago. But they continue to live in people’s minds. I’d say Choti Ammi’s best most successful films came after she married Baba. Before marriage she worked in mythologicals. It was the advent of Kamal Amrohi in her life that brought on the best phase of her career.”
He clarifies a common misconception, saying, “It is believed that Baba went and whisked Choti Ammi away from her home for marriage. Not so. It was Choti Ammi who came to Baba’s home. And let me tell you, they fell in love without meeting secretly. During those days lovers from the film industry met in dark corners of studios. Not my parents. Their love blossomed on the phone. His voice was so magnetic that she fell in love with him.”
Kriti Sanon and Manish Malhotra might face a lawsuit
Expressing his deep dissatisfaction with the proposed biopic on Meena Kumari, Tajdar Amrohi has made it clear that he intends to take decisive legal measures. He states, “I’ll go by what my lawyer will tell me. He said to wait. Both me and my sister Rushksar will file a suit.”
