Actress Taapsee Pannu has revealed she has been approached for a biopic on Irom Sharmila, the civil rights and political activist from Manipur.
There were reports that she has been signed for the film, but theBaby star says she is yet to read the script. “I have been asked, but we are figuring out time when will I go and listen to the script because I’ve been running around with these things (promotions). OncePink releases, I’ll hear it and then see,” Taapsee said in an interview.
Manipur’s ‘Iron Lady’ Irom Sharmila had last month broken her 16-year-old hunger strike, the world’s longest, and declared that she wants to become the chief minister so that she could repeal the contentious Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA).
