There are a certain set of credentials you need to possess if you are being approached for the lead role in a biopic. At the same time, you are also expected to mould yourself as that real life character and infuse soul into it. India has very few actors and actresses of that caliber.
One such person is the sensuous beauty Vidya Balan and she has now been approached to do the lead role in the biopic of Mahanati Savitri- Mahanati. To those who are wondering why, here is the answer. Vidya has pan Indian appeal and she has proved her mettle as a fine performer.
If it is a Telugu girl only Telugu audience will get connected but when someone with a national identity like Vidya Balan does the role, the impact and pride of the iconic Savitri would be high. As it is, Savitri is known for everyone so all boils down to Vidya accepting this offer.
