Vidya Balan is happy for her new project. “I haven’t decided yet whether it should be a film or a web series, but that will take a while anyway,” she added.
Earlier, Supriya Vinod has been seen as Indira Gandhi in two movies, first in Jabbar Patel’s Yashwantrao Chavan (2014) and then in Madhur Bhandarkar’s Indu Sarkar (2017).
