Madhur Biased Marilyn over Madhubala

Madhur Bhandarkar is giving each reference points to make Kareena Kapoor’s character perfect in his forthcoming film. Madhur has prepared 3 hour documentary based on four legendary Hollywood beauties, including Eva Gardner, Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe and Vivien Leigh.

In order to make Kareena’s job easier, Madhur will give this documentary to her. Strangely, he has not mentioned any female legends from Indian cinema. Countering his part, Madhur says,

“Take Vivien Leigh — her stormy relationship with Sir Laurence Olivier is so eventful, dramatic and romantic. Unfortunately there’s no substantial footage on Madhubala or Meena Kumari revealing their relationship with Kishore Kumar and Kamal Amrohi respectively.”

Madhur also adds that he was shocked by seeing the lack of written records about Indian actresses. And said,

“Yes, I do want Kareena to refer back to our great actresses like Madhubala, Nargis and Nutan. I think Kareena has elements of Nutan’s personality. But I can only brief her verbally about them. It’s really sad.”
