Quantico star Priyanka Chopra, who has been absent from celluloid for quite a long time now, is presently busy shooting for Shonali Bose’ hotly anticipated film The Sky Is Pink. Also starring Farhan Akhtar and Zaira Wasim in pivotal roles, the movie is being bankrolled by the actress herself in association with Ronnie Screwvala and Siddharth Roy Kapur.
The latest we hear that apart from working on The Sky Is Pink, which is nearing its completion, the National Film Award-winning actress has also begun work on her next project. PC revealed details about her next movie during her recent appearance on the internationally popular The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Talking to Ellen DeGeneres, Priyanka said that she is developing and producing a project on Ma Anand Sheela, wherein she will essay the title role.
“I am developing a feature with Barry Levinson. He is an iconic American director. We are developing it (from the perspective of) Sheela who is this guru who originated from India. She was his right-hand woman and she was devious. She created a whole cult in America. He was called Osho. I don’t know if you have heard of him. I am developing that next for me to star in and produce,” said the Jai Gangaajal (2016) actress.
Interesting, a couple of months ago, reports were doing the rounds that Dharma Productions and Aamir Khan Productions were also planning a high-profile project on Osho, wherein Aamir Khan was rumoured to be playing Guru Osho and Alia Bhatt her right hand. However, neither Dharma Productions nor Aamir Khan Productions ever put any official word forward regarding the project.
