Kirti Kulhari received rave reviews for her superb performance in the Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu starrer Pink. And now the actress is all set for her first major leading role in Madhur Bhandarkar's ambitious Indu Sarkar.
The film has Kirti playing Indira Gandhi. It also has Neil Nitin Mukesh playing Sanjay Gandhi and Anupam Kher in an undisclosed role.
Talking about her role, Kirti had earlier said, “Indu is raised in an orphanage and has a stammering problem but loves to write and read poetry. After 'Pink', I wanted to do something that would challenge me further as an actor. We want to create the same impact as Tabu's turn in 'Chandni Bar' with my character."
Check out the first look posters.
The film is expected to release in 2017.
