Former Miss. Universe Sushmita Sen, who was keen to essay the role of her dream woman, Rani Laxmi Bai, now has to wait for a loner time as the project has been put "indefinitely on hold" due to cash constraints.
"'Rani Laxmi Bai', my home production, is indefinitely on hold till I have the funds to make the film the way I want to," Sushmita told. “‘Laxmi Bai' to me is a dream, it's not just a film. So I can't compromise with it at all”.
"The script, the storyboard, everything is's just a matter of putting in the money now and making the film."
She has revealed that she is really upset with this step.
"When I open my production house, it'll definitely be for producing films but I hoped 'Rani Laxmi Bai' will be the first one, which as of now, it won't be," she said.
She had also been roped in for essaying the role of late Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto for her biopic tilted ‘Benazir Bhutto: The Movie’.
“‘Benazir Bhutto...' is also on hold," Sushmita said. "We require the Pakistan People's Party's (PPP) permission to make the film and they have issues because it is a controversial subject. But whenever we get the clearance, I'll play Benazir Bhutto."
Last seen in English film "Karma, Confessions and Holi", Sushmita will be seen in "Do Knot Disturb" against Govinda.
The movie, which belongs to the comedy genre, has been directed by David Dhawan.
Asked if the Bengali beauty is keen to do comedies with her repeated teaming-up with the director, Sushmita said: "After the kind of films I have done in the past, the last thing that can be done is brand me in any particular genre”.
"I have done very different kind of films from experimental, non-experimental to commercial. If I look at commercial films then I either look at a love story or a comedy.
"Having said that, there is also 'Dulha Mil Gaya' and Aness Bazmee's 'No Problem' and all of them have a touch of comedy, but I just hope that I don't get branded into doing just that. It's just that I enjoy doing comedies a lot," she said.
In "Do Knot Disturb", Sushmita will be teaming up with another former Miss Universe, Lara Dutta.
Asked if the combo would add to the oomph factor of the movie, she said: "Why not? Anything that adds to a film is a good thing. It's ironic that after all this time we finally come together and Chichi (as Govinda is fondly called) gets to be the lucky guy to have a Miss Universe on both sides."
