Since a long time there was a strong buzz that Priyanka Chopra might play the title role in entrepreneur Kalpana Saroj's biopic. However here comes a twist in the tale.
As per a Spotboye report 'Parched' actress Radhika Apte has now been approached for this film. The report further quoted a source saying, "Priyanka has long wanted to see Kalpana Saroj’s inspirational journey unfold on screen. She feels that Radhika Apte will fit the bill perfectly.”
Further we even hear that Bipasha Basu was a strong contender for this role.
Married off at an young age, suffering physical abuse at the hands of her husband and an unsuccessful attempt to commit suicide, Kalpana Saroj went on to become a multi millionaire who is in charge of $112 million worth business ventures. She was honoured with the Padma Shri in 2013.
