It’s admirable how she fought the norms created by society, at a time when ladies barely had the best to talk up. It’s my honour to point out her life story to the audiences. I had acquired the [necessary] rights earlier than the pandemic, and I’m hoping to begin the shoot by the year-end,” she says, including that they’re at present scouting for a director who can translate her imaginative and prescient on the display.
