Mumbai, Oct 18 (IANS) Bollywood actress turned television celebrity anchor Pooja Bedi has denied any knowledge of a film being made on her mother Protima Bedi. Pooja, daughter of Kabir Bedi and his first wife Protima, said she has neither been approached by any director or producer for permission nor for providing any information on her mother.

“Neither I or any of my family members know about the film,” Pooja told IANS.

“I wonder how they will make a film on my mother without getting any details from us. I hope they are not making the film with reference from her autobiography,” said Pooja.

Protima Bedi, Odissi danseuse-cum-model, had written a autobiography titled “Time Pass” where she gave a candid description of all her relationships and her rebellious lifestyle.

The book also has a vivid description of her family life including her dream project of setting up a free dance school Nrityagram, to her eventual transition into a monk.

Pooja had compiled all her writings and published the book in 2000.

Pooja said: “If they are making the film from her book then they should first seek permission.”

Earlier, it was reported in a section of media that south Indian director Sarath Kumar is making a film on Protima Bedi where Shilpa Shetty will be playing the role of Protima.
