The murdered nurse from Rajasthan, Bhanwari Devi, who went missing after allegedly blackmailing local politicians for inappropriate sexual conduct, has become a source of inspiration for multiple film directors, who want to make a movie on her scandalous life.

Bhanwari Ka Jaal, a film on the controversial lady, is being made by builder-turned-producer Ranjeet Sharma with Rakesh Saini as the director. The film has Sadhika Randhawa essaying the title role of Bhanwari Devi.

The makers obtained the permission to make the film from Bhanwari Devi’s family, though director Nikhil Tonk, who was associated with Ekta Kapoor's TV production house and had also planned to make a film on the same subject.

Mallika Sherawat, Priyanka Chopra, Bipasha Basu, Kangana Ranaut and Jacqueline Fernandez were being considered for the lead role. The film will be shot in 30 days on a budget of four crores in Jodhpur and Ajmer on actual locations where Bhanwari lived as well as the jail in which her husband is languishing now.
