madhubalaThe biopic may not be about her comparison to Kishore Kumar or Dilip Kumar, her sister Madhur Bhushan said in a new interview. Madhubala had a relationship with Dilip Kumara for several years before a public argues over a lawsuit. Madhubala and Kishore Kumara were married from 1960-69, but her family has always accused him of “abandoning” her in her last days. Madhubala died in 1969 at the age of 36. †Also read | Madhubala was not happy with Kishore Kumar because ‘he didn’t have time’ for her†
The biopic has been in the works for a while now. While Madhur is believed to have been working on it since Madhubala’s wax figure was unveiled at Madame Tussaud’s museum, the biopic was officially announced in 2018.
Speaking to ETimes, Madhur said: “We are sure we don’t want to hurt anyone as we tell this story. We don’t want to go into what happened to Dilip Kumar and Kishore Kumar. They also have families, women and children. Every relationship has its ups and downs, but just as we don’t appreciate talking about our father, they too will feel hurt if someone talks about the past. We want to celebrate Madhubala’s life, but we don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings.”
“I am going for a biopic about my sister, which will be produced very soon by my very dear friends. It is my humble request to all the benefactors of Madhubala and anyone associated with Bollywood or anywhere else to please do not attempt to biopic or anything based on my sister’s life without my consent,” Madhur said in a statement in 2018.
Madhubala was in love with Dilip Kumar, but they never married. While many claim it was because of her father, Madhur has often said it was because of ego clashes. Madhubala was married to Kishore for nine years, until her death. For most of those nine years, however, they lived separately.
Born Mumtaz Jehan Begum Dehelvi, Madhubala made her debut as a child performer in 1942 with Basant and her first adult role was Ganga in Neel Kamal (1947). She is also known as Indian Marilyn Monroe and tragedy queen of Bollywood.
