It seems that Priyanka Chopra is finally ready to make a big, splashy return in Bollywood, because she has already bagged a big project, Bharat, which is going to star Salman Khan, and now, she seems to be inching towards a more prestigious genre. She is going to star in Sonali Bose’s next movie, alongside Abhishek Bachchan. The film is going to be based on a true story, and will involve a couple who have a daughter with Immune Deficiency disorder. It is going to be produced by Ronni Screwala, and Sidharth Roy Kapoor. The production is scheduled to begin soon, after the two actors have finished with their commitments. The movie is still untitled and the actress who is going to play their daughter is yet to be finalized.
Apart from Priyanka, it seems that Abhishek is also ready to make his comeback on the silverscreen after two years of absence. He has already finished filming Anurag Kashyap’s Manmariziya, in which he is going to star alongside Vicky Kaushal and Taapsi Pannu.
Sonali Bose directed the critically acclaimed, Margarita with a straw, starring Kalki Koechlin. The movie was a critical darling, with many finding Kalki’s performance, as Laila, a woman suffering from cerebral palsy, Oscar worthy. She won the jury award at the annual national awards in 2016. The pedigree behind and the talent before the camera is certainly promising, and it seems that Priyanka is ready to take Bollywood by storm with a great performance.
