Mumbai: The mystery behind industry’s most elusive actress Rekha is soon to be unveiled. Buzz has it that filmmaker Anil Sharma`s younger brother Kapil Sharma is gearing up for a biopic on the veteran actress. And if sources are to be believed, he wants Bipasha Basu, Sridevi or Rani Mukerji to play the role of the controversial actress.

Speaking to a daily, a source confirmed, “It will be a film on Rekha where the mysteries surrounding her will be revealed. Kapil has written the script and after working on ‘Dunno Y... Na Jaane Kyon’, he wants to make a film based on the industry.”

Apart from considering some top actresses for the role of Rekha, Kapil has been working on the script which would entail Rekha`s life and certain vital characters like Big B, Kiran Kumar, Vinod Mehra and even Jaya Bachchan.

On being contacted, Kapil Sharma said, “Yes, I am making a film on a controversial actress who has been an ex number one in the industry. However, I am not comfortable talking about it now. All I can say is that the film is called ‘Sitaare’ and has the backdrop of Bollywood. The film has an ensemble cast and will have 7-8 major characters. I am still to finalise the lead actors.”

“It is a story that I wanted to tell. I have been an industry kid and I want to unveil the mystery behind the actress. It is the journey of the actress, which is so interesting and colourful. It is her iconic career, her relationships and the ups and downs in her life,” he further added.

Well, we all are waiting for the film…
