After producing a biopic on boxer Mary Kom, Sanjay Leela Bhansali seems keen on making another one. Apparently, he has also met Kangana Ranaut to discuss this project.

"Bhansali is fascinated by the way his biopic is shaping up and has already started planning another one in the same genre," says an industry source.

The film-maker wants to work with Kangana, and the meeting was to explain its concept to the actor. "They had a long discussion, where Bhansali shared a rough idea of his plans for the film," adds the source.

While his production is about a sports personality, Bhansali’s directorial may be based on a personality from another walk of life. The source says, “It’s not about any celebrity from the entertainment industry; rather, it’s about an achiever from a different field."

Bhansali remained unavailable for a comment, and Kangana refrained from divulging any details. She said, “I can’t speak about my meeting with Bhansali. I am meeting many people; and I will speak once anything is confirmed.”

Back in 2, Kangana Ranaut had directed a short film, The Touch, in collaboration with an Australian writer. But even as parts of the film were shown on a recent chat show, and it was appreciated, the actor isn’t keen on releasing it. “It was not made for a theatrical release. I hadn’t made it for festivals, either” says Kangana. The actor admits that she took on the project when she was losing hope of having a flourishing acting career. “That time, I got the offer to direct the film, and I did it,” she says.
