Sharmila Tagore says a film tracing the life of her late husband and Indian cricketing legend Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi aka Tiger Pataudi, would make for a cinematic treat.
From Bhaag Milkha, Bhaag, Mary Kom, Sultan, Azhar to MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, biopics on sports stars seems like the flavour of the season in Bollywood. But the actress says she is not in a hurry to see her husband’s life being portrayed on the silver screen. “I am sure a lot of people are thinking about it (film based on Tiger Pataudi’s life). I am sure when the time is right, they will... I think it would make a very good film, but only when the time is right,” said Sharmila Tagore.
Asked about which actor from the younger lot she thinks can do justice to the role, she said: “There are wonderful actors and I think we are very blessed in that case. So I am sure we will find someone good.”

She said: “I believe in this campaign because it is really reaching out to a certain segment of the society. It reaches out to men to request them to share the load, which I think is very important.”
