A film will also be made after the web series on Devika Rani


Mumbai: Bollywood filmmaker Ashwini Iyer is making a film on Devika Rani, the so-called first lady of Indian cinema, and Himanshu Rai, the founder of Bombay Talkies. The recently released web series ‘Jubilee’ also has characters based on Devika Rani and Himanshu Roy. Aditi Rao Hydari’s performance as Devika Rani in this series has been highly appreciated. So choosing the right heroine for the film is now a big challenge for Ashwini. The script of this film is being worked on. No information about the cast has been released yet.

Ashwini Iyer Tiwari has previously produced critically acclaimed films like ‘Neel Batta Sannata’, ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ and ‘Panga’. In such a way, he has a lot of expectations from this nostalgic film.

Devika Rani and Himanshu Rai founded Bombay Talkies in 1934. Which was India’s first commercial studio. Devika Rani was the most beautiful and talented actress of Indian cinema.

Her fans gave her the title of First Lady. On the other hand, Himanshu Rai was one of the powerhouses of Indian cinema, a fine actor as well as a skilled businessman.
