Bioscopewala director Deb Medhekar is a Meena Kumari fan. For his upcoming movie Bioscopewala, he was on the lookout for an actress who would not just do justice to the character and exude an authentic Bengali look a la the late veteran actress.

He has decided to cast National Award-winning actress Geetanjali Thapa.

“I am a big Meena Kumari fan and I think no other actress can look as authentically beautiful and Bengali as Meena Kumari did in ‘Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam’. So when I was casting Mini in ‘Bioscopewala’ as an adult, I cast Geetanjali Thapa because she has an uncanny resemblance,” Medhekar said in a statement to IANS.

Bioscopewala extends the story from where Nobel Prize winner Rabindranath Tagore’s Kabuliwala — a widely known short story penned in 1892 — ends.

Kabuliwala shows movies to children in Kolkata on his bioscope. Being with the children, specially young Mini, reminds him of his daughter who is in Kabul ravaged by civil war.

The forthcoming casts the legendary actor Danny Denzongpa as the bioscopewala.
