Priyanka Chopra roped in for astronaut Kalpana Chawla biopic

Bollywood beauty Priyanka Chopra who at present is busy with the shoot of her American television series ‘Quantico’ is also excited about the release of her upcoming period drama ‘Bajirao Mastani’. The beauty had won over the audience in ‘Mary Kom‘ a biopic on India’s boxing Queen. Now there are rumours buzzing in Bollywood about the diva being approached for another.

Apparently Priyanka Chopra has been approached to depict the role of Kalpana Chawla, the first Indian woman in space. The proposal is being put forward by Viacom 18 Motion Pictures Production venture.

Sources said, “Priyanka has been offered the lead role, but though interested 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. They are waiting for her to return to India.”

Kalpana Chawla had died on her second expedition to space with seven other astronauts, when the space shuttle carrying them exploded. She has been awarded the Congressional Space Medal of Honor by the United States.
