After essaying titular role in Oomung Kumar’s Mary Kom, Priyanka Chopra is all set to play astronaut Kalpana Chawla in a biopic on the first woman of Indian origin to go to space.
A Mid Day report claimed Priyanka’s team had confirmed that she will play Kalpana in the biopic and added that the team has been involved in the “legwork of the film for past one year”. “The film will be mounted on an international scale. A new production company, Getway, is likely to produce the biopic,” it quoted a source as saying.
Debutante director Priya Mishra told the tabloid, “I have been working on it for the past seven years. A new production banner will back the project.”
Hindustan Times could not independently verify the report.
