Mumbai: Filmmaker Anurag Basu might be thinking of casting actress Kangna Ranaut as yesteryears actress Madhubala for his next film, a Kishore Kumar biopic.

The director has apparently decided to cast Kangna to play the beautiful Madhubala in his biopic based on singing legend, Kishore Kumar.

Speaking to a daily, Anurag said, “There was no role that she could do in my current film, ‘Barfee’.

It does feel odd to be working without her. But I`m sure we`ll work together again. It could be in Kishore.”

But the last that we had heard, the duo had a fallout of sorts and Kangna had gone all public about their tiff. Anurag admits he was hurt. “If she had a problem with me regarding her role in ‘Kites’ or whatever, she could`ve picked up the phone and told me.

Why go public about it? Yes, that hurt. I think she was upset because she was left out of the publicity of Kites.

But we wanted to pitch it as a Hrithik Roshan-Barbara Mori love story. We are and always will be friends. There`s no problem from my side.”

Is Kangna ready to bury the hatchet?
