Los Angeles: Whitney Houston's daughter Bobbi Kristina wants to play her in a planned biopic. The biopic will depict her legendary mother's rise to super stardom in the 80s and then her descent into drug abuse in the 90s after marrying singer Bobby Brown, Kristina's father, a magazine reported.

"Bobbi feels like she is the perfect person to play the part of Whitney - telling friends that no one knew her better," a source said.

Houston died by accidental drowning caused by heart disease and cocaine use in February. Kristina, 19, is an aspiring actress and has recently been cast in Tyler Perry comedy series "For Better Or Worse". R&B star Rihanna has also said she is interested in playing the tragic 'My Love is Your Love' hitmaker.
