Mahesh Bhatt’s biopic on telly

Mahesh Bhatt

Television industry is going to do something new this time and viewers are waiting for the show to be on air. Till date, biopics have been made only for the silver screen. But now, the small screen is also set to telecast a biopic and it is none other than that of Mahesh Bhatt.

The life of this ace filmmaker has been larger-than-life, and so the makers have decided to keep the audience glued to their seats with this daily soap.

This is a joint venture of Mahesh Bhatt along with Guroudev Bhalla and Dhaval Gada for Star Plus. Speculations are rife in the industry that the big name roped in to play the pivotal role of the lead in the biopic will be none other than Viraf Phiroz Patel. The actor was last seen in Ek Boond Ishq on Life OK.

According to sources, “There have been many changes regarding who should be chosen to play the role of the protagonist. After a long search and many short listings, Viraf has been chosen more or less, and he may come on board. He looks like the apt choice and the channel and makers are all set to fix the deal with Viraf.”

After coming to the limelight with Mahi Way,, Kismat and Ek Boond Ishq, this will be yet another biggie for Viraf, if things do fall in place. Bhalla and Gada are popular for their show Udaan which is on air on Colors channel.
