Kalpana Chawla and her life story will continue to inspire generations and generations to come. India’s first woman astronaut who made India proud by her achievements lost her life in 2003 after a tragic aircraft explosion. After spending 31 days, 14 hours and 54 minutes in space, Kalpana Chawla and her achievements will be remembered for ages.
And now, Kalpana Chawla’s journey is all set to get a cinematic tribute and Priyanka Chopra will be seen reprising the role of the real life braveheart. While there were a lot of consistent rumors that PC has bagged the role, now it’s confirmed that she indeed will be seen in the Kalpana Chawla’s biopic. A Mid-day report quoted Priyanka Chopra saying,
“I have been working on it for the past seven years. A new production banner will back the project.”
PC has been in touch with the filmmaker for the film and it looks like it will be her first Bollywood project after returning to India. The same report quoted a source saying,
“I was last heading a TV channel creatively and post 2011, quit to pursue filmmaking. This is one of the two scripts that I have written.” On the same, a source has added that the venture will be promoted on an international scale. “The film will be mounted on an international scale. A new production company, Getway, is likely to produce the biopic.”
After Mary Kom, this project will be PC’s second biopic and the way she gets into the skin of the character, we are pretty sure that we as cinema-lovers will get to see the most honest tribute to India’s most loved astronaut.
