Famous Bollywood actor Vidya Balan will portray eminent Indian-English writer Kamala Das in her biopic. The writer, who changed her name Kamala Surayya after accepting Islam before her death in 2009, is known to shock the readers with her bold writings. Turning around her literary life, the Malayalam – English movie will be directed by famous Malayalam director Kamal. According to Kamal, the bilingual movie will not be realistic to the core but a blend of real life and fictional situations. The shooting of this film will hopefully begin in October.
