Biopics are the flavour of 2016. Bollywood is deriving stories from real life and presenting it on the big screen to make sure that it reaches to each and everyone. They are tales of success and failure and never-ending dreams.
One such subject that continues to intrigue several film-makers is the inspiring story of Kalpana Chawla, the first Indian woman in space who lost her life in the tragic Columbia space-shuttle crash. Her journey was short-lived but her achievements were extra-ordinary.
We would absolutely love to see these 5 Bollywood actresses playing Kalpana Chawla on-screen
1. Priyanka Chopra
There were a bunch of rumours that this 'desi' girl will be portraying Kalpana Chawla in a biopic. But we haven't heard anything concrete yet. However Pee Cee would be a perfect choice considering she too has made us proud with her achievements.
2. Deepika Padukone
While this tall girl is all geared up to sashay into Hollywood with Vin Diesel's 'XXX: Return Of the Xander Cage, Deepika has time and again proved her acting prowess with films like 'Piku', 'Bajirao Mastani' and several others.
3. Anushka Sharma
Anushka Sharma may have had a dream start as an actress with 'Rab Ne Bana De Jodi' opposite Shah Rukh Khan. But when it came to production, the actress took an unconventional plunge and gave us a gritty thriller 'NH10' riding on the shoulders of no big star. She didn't play safe then and it is her this brave choice that makes her a perfect candidate to play Kalpana.
4. Kangana Ranaut
'A small town girl making it big', isn't that the term that comes to your mind when you think of this actress. Her bold statements have many a times triggered controversies but she has each time emerged stronger than ever before!
5. Ritika Singh
This new girl in the block has been receiving rave reviews for her portrayal of a boxer in 'Saala Khadoos' (Well, she's one in real life too!). But it would be quite interesting to see her play an astronaut on the big screen.
Who do you guys think would be an apt choice for this dream role?
