|Mumbai, Sep 21 :
Filmmaker Anurag Basu
, who is
basking in the success of his latest offering " Barfi
!", says his Ranbir
Kapoor-starrer biopic on Kishore Kumar
is in its scripting stage, and
will go on floors in the winter season of 2013.
"It's a true
film. I am very much connected to the subject and the idea of the
script. I have not yet started working on the film yet. But we are happy
that we have got a nod from Kishore Kumar
's family to make this film,"
Basu told IANS.
"Before this film, Ranbir will be doing two more
films with other directors, and then this film will go on floors. So I
believe Kishore Kumar
's biopic should start by winter 2013," he added.
says the legendary singer's son Amit Kumar
is helping them with the
research regarding the film, which is expected to have lilting melodies
and a powerful soundtrack, given Kishore Kumar
have to work very hard on the music of this film. But it's too early
right now because presently it's only me, Ranbir and UTV, who are part
of this project. Kishore Kumar
's son Amit Kumar
is helping us a lot with
this film. He is helping us with the research and keeps us updated
about everything," he added.© IANS
