Sharmila Tagore has ditched the names of son Saif Ali Khan and daughter-in-law Kareena Kapoor, and picked Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt to star in a biopic on husband Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi.

Recipient of two National Film awards and two Filmfare awards, veteran actress Sharmila Tagore wants a biopic to be made on her late husband cricketer Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi and wonders if Ranbir and Alia could fit the roles.

“Yes, of course I would like a movie to be made on Mansoor Ali Khan. If someone really directs it properly, and with proper research, I think I would like it. I think his life has got a lot of things, about the accident, about losing his father and playing cricket with such a handicap,” Sharmila said on the red carpet of Lux Golden Rose awards on Saturday night.

When asked whom she would like to see in the role of Pataudi, the actress said, “I really don’t know. Somebody who looks like Tiger. Maybe Ranbir Kapoor or somebody in the family.”

But when asked whom she would like to play her on the screen, Sharmila asked, “That’s a real challenge. What about Alia Bhatt?”


Sharmila Tagore also talked about her family trust working closely with acid attack victims.

“We have a trust, Pataudi Trust, we support acid attack victims. I think as a woman and as an actor, we are so involved with the physical attributes. So I cannot imagine it as a woman, that just because someone said no, you throw acid on her, this is terrible. I am restoring their faces,” Sharmila added.
