Rani to play Begum Samru in Tigmanshu next
"I had written the script for `Begum Samru` four-five years back. I had written something earlier first.. now making changes in it. There is some time for `Begum Samru`. But I will definitely make that film," Tigmanshu told PTI.
Tigmanshu, who is basking in the glory of recent hits like `Paan Singh Tomar` and `Saheb Biwi Gangster`, had approached the `No One Killed Jessica` star for the film.
"I had approached Rani. Besides her, I haven`t approached anyone yet," he said.
Begam Samru played a key role in the political power struggle in 18th and 19th century. She was the head of a professionally trained mercenary army, inherited from her European mercenary husband, Walter Reinhardt Sombre. This mercenary army consisted of Europeans and Indians.
