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.

From being a daring actress who flaunted a bikini in An Evening In Paris to delivering power-packed performances in movies like Aradhana, Sharmila has shattered various stereotypes in the film industry during her career.

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.”
