If reports are to be believed then Priyanka Chopra has been approached for a biopic on the late astronaut Kalpana Chawla, the first Indian woman in space. Buzz is that the film will be produced by Viacom 18.
A Mid-Day report quoted a source as saying, "Priyanka has been offered the lead role, but she is yet to give her approval to the makers. She is currently busy with her American TV show along with other Bollywood commitments, and is so, taking her time to make up her mind. The makers feel Priyanka fits the bill; the common factor is that she, like Chawla, hails from a small town too.
The tabloid further quoted a source close to Viacom 18 as saying, "We have the rights to the biopic on Kalpana Chawla. We have had a discussion with Priyanka about the film and she has shown interest. We are waiting for her to return to India next month to take things forward."
Wow! Now that's some great news for all Pee Cee fans! Meanwhile the 'desi girl' is busy looking forward to her upcoming releases- 'Bajirao Mastani' and 'Jai Gangaajal'.
