Movie producer Kiran Rao says she is eager to explore a film on the life and times of courtesan-turned-singer Gauhar Jaan, who cut a gramophone record in 1902.
“Since a couple of years, I have been considering making a film on the life of Gauhar Jaan. I was attempting to compose the script too, yet now I think I ought to abandon it for a few years. Be that as it may, her life was so intriguing and not very many individuals think about her. I think a film made on her will be a treat for the audience,” Kiran said on the sidelines of an extraordinary screening of “Poorna” here.
Gauhar Jaan is viewed as the pioneer of the thumri convention in Indian established music.
At the screening, Kiran commended “Poorna” and stated that biopics are fruitful in light of the fact that they are fascinating to watch.
“Biopics are intriguing. There are not very many biopics which are made on living people. The majority of the circumstances, biopics are made on individuals who are retired or dead. Movies on solid people are continually fascinating to watch, and that is the reason biopics are so mainstream,” said Kiran, whose husband actor Aamir Khan featured in “Dangal” — a story inspired by wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat.
