Indian Government Demands Halt To Gandhi Biopic

A proposed biopic of SONIA GANDHI, starring MONICA BELLUCCI, has been put in jeopardy after the ruling Indian political party threatened legal action. Italian-born Gandhi famously refused to become Prime Minister of India when the Congress party, of which she is leader, was voted into office in 2004. Now film-maker JAGMOHAN MUNDHRA hopes to chronicle her extraordinary life in a big budget movie due for completion in December (06). However, her party has today (20JUL06) served a legal notice to block Mundhra's project, fearing it could be inaccurate and stating Gandhi herself has failed to endorse it. Mundhra has yet to respond. Gandhi is the widow of assassinated former Indian Prime Minister RAJIV GANDHI.
