Madhuri Dixit to play Sridevi in the biopic?

It is very obvious by now that the late Sridevi’s husband Boney Kapoor is interested in making a film on the life of the incomparable actress. But the question is who will play Sridevi? A source very close to Boney Kapoor says, “Really if you look at the options available to Boney, there is only Madhuri Dixit-Nene who has the stature, grace, reach and dancing abilities to play Sridevi. Also, Boney and his sibling Anil have always been very firmly connected with Madhuri ever since she acted with Anil in iconic films like Beta and Tezaab. Madhuri looks like the possible fit to play Sridevi.”

Nevertheless, the question remains that will Madhuri agree to play the iconic actress with whom she was forever compared to during their heydays?
Lately, Madhuri stepped into a role in Karan Johar’s Kalank that originally was to be performed by Sridevi.

A close friend of the Kapoor’s says, “Sridevi would have never desired a biopic to be made. And even if she had, she would have wanted her girl Janhvi to play Sridevi. But Janhvi is too fresh and too close to the tragic death of her mother to play her.”
