A biopic on Haryana-based astronaut, Kalpana Chawla, who aspired many to dream big but unfortunately died during her second expedition in February 2003 after her space shuttle had exploded, is in making. Rumours are rife that Priyanka Chopra has been approached to play the role of the first ever Indian woman who went into space. Priyanka is yet to sign the flick.
Mid-Day 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 so, is taking 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.”
It is said that Viacom 18 Motion Pictures will produce the film. A source close to the production house has been quoted 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.”
