While the project is under the scripting stage, the makers have bought the rights. They plan to start the pre-production soon. The movie will go on floors this year itself.

"Having portrayed several unconventional, challenging and bold characters, we were looking for a story idea for Swara that would match the performance potential of her previous films. Krishna Sen's real-life story is the perfect choice to portray a mysterious real-life character as well as bring a strangely true story to life on the big screen," Ishan said.

He added: "We want to explore the psychology of this really interesting character. Swara's 'bindaas' attitude and the ability to take on challenging roles make her an ideal choice to play the title role in the biopic."

Talking about his new production banner -- Kahaaniwaaley Entertainment and Media Ventures Pvt Ltd, Ishan said: "The basic idea is to support films, scripts and filmmakers that have these great stories but for one reason or the other are struggling to tell them."
