It’s been three years since Priyanka Chopra was seen in a Bollywood project. Her last Hindi film Jai Gangaajal tanked at the box-office, post which she has been busy with her work in Hollywood and her TV show Quantico.
Priyanka had announced on Women’s Day (March 8) that her next Bollywood project will happen as soon as she is back in India. Reports suggest that she will be starring in Kalpana Chawla’s biopic and will start shooting next month.
“The film will be mounted on an international scale. A new production company, Getway, is likely to produce the biopic,” a source said. Sources suggest that Priyanka will possibly make an official announcement once she is back in Mumbai.
Sources also said that Ali Abbas Zafar was in New York, to sign Priyanka for his ambitious film Bharat, opposite Salman Khan.
Earlier, there were talks about her being cast opposite Aamir Khan in Salute, but that isn’t happening anymore now that Shah Rukh Khan is the lead. She has wrapped up her work in New York and will be heading to Ireland as well to shoot for some scenes from Quantico. After her Ireland schedule is over, she is slated to arrive in Mumbai.
