Sonam to play Amrita Sher-Gill in her next
The film will revolve around the life of Amrita which was full of controversies .she died at 28 .
“Sonam will play Sher-Gil, an eminent painter of pre-independent India. The actress is in talks with the artist’s family and work on her life story has already begun,” quoting a source ,a newspaper report said.
Late writer Khushwant Singh had said that Amrita’s life was more colourful than the bright colours she used in her paintings—this is a good look at it.
“She had countless lovers: her ravenous appetite for sex was legendary. She did not waste time in preliminaries. If her lover took too long to make the first move, she simply stripped and lay down on the carpet, naked. Badruddin Tyabjee gave a vivid description of his encounter with her one winter’s night in Simla,” Khushwant Singh had said in one of his articles.
