Kiran Bedi on biopic

"I was in pondicherry for my assignment when Kushaal and his father (producer) Gaurav Chawla came to me saying they wanted to make a film on me. I told them that it was too early for it as I was still at work, but I saw the massive homework and due diligence they had already done, without even knowing whether I would say yes or no,Bedi told HT.


The 75-year-old shared that filmmaker Kushaal Chawla made her say yes after seeing the four-and-a-half years of research done on her life and work.

When asked about the portrayal of police officers in indian cinema, kiran bedi added, "With my limited time, I don’t watch much of uniform or police series, because I have had enough of it in real life.”

There was no pre-planned judgment, we heard people on there for the first time live itself and it was truly based on testimonials being given and the evidence we had. The judgments were honored like a civil court. I loved that part of my life.”
