After making head turns with her beautiful outfits at the Cannes 2023 film festival and the IIFA 2023, actor Urvashi Rautela has now begun the preparations for her new film, a biopic on the life of late actor Parveen Babi.

Taking to Instagram, in the early hours of Sunday, the ‘Sanam Re’ actor shared a post which she captioned, “Bollywood Failed #ParveenBabi but i will make you proud #PB ~ UR Om Namah Shivay. Trust the magic of new beginnings.”

She shared a picture of the summary of the upcoming biopic.

“Thank you for making the movie about #Praveen babi,” a fan commented.

Another fan wrote, “your upcoming movie about #PraveenBabi is destined to become a blockbuster”

Another fan commented, “First actress ever to come in support of Parveen Babi!”

Parveen Babi passed away on January 20, 2005 in her flat in Mumbai.

She made her film debut with the film ‘Charitra’ (1973), opposite cricketer Salim Durani. The film did not do well on the box office, but Parveen was noticed and was snapped up for several more films.

Her first major hit was ‘Majboor’ (1974), opposite Amitabh Bachchan. Along with Zeenat Aman, Parveen Babi helped change the image of the Indian film heroine. She was the first Bollywood star to appear on the front page of Time in July 1976.

Throughout her career, she was considered as a glamorous and fashion icon.

Meanwhile, Urvashi has recently come up with the web series ‘Inspector Avinash’ opposite actor Randeep Hooda. The show is streaming on the OTT platform JioCinema.
