London: Mitch Winehouse, father of late singer Amy Winehouse has given the green signal for pop sensation Lady Gaga to play his daughter in a biopic.
   
The tragic star's father reckons that the 'Marry the Night' hitmaker would be perfect for the role.
   
"We were invited to Tony Bennet's birthday party and we sat on a table with Lady Gaga's mum and dad. They are just normal folk and very lovely people. I have heard that Lady Gaga is keen to play Amy in a film.
   
"I don't know what her English accent is like but it's not just an English accent she would have to perfect. It is the English-Cockney-Jewish accent, so she better start
practising now. But she would be great," he added.
