The Desi girl, who has been busy with her assignments overseas, is on a short break in India and has already begun signing her next Bollywood project. After her last film Jai Gangaajal, Priyanka has been missing from Hindi film scene, but it seems she was only looking for a meatier project to make her much-awaited comeback in Bollywood. It seems the 34-year-old actor has finally found a perfect project. If a media report is to be believed, Priyanka has been roped in to play late astronaut Kalpana Chawla in a biopic. The film will be directed by Priya Mishra.

It’s been a while since Viacom 18 announced a film on Kalpana Chawla’s life, however, no names were given out. But it seems Priyanka has been finalised for the project. A source was quoted as telling the daily, “The film will be mounted on an international scale. A new production company, Getway, is likely to produce the biopic.” The report suggests that Priyanka’s team has been involved with the project for over a year now. In fact, the script of the film has also been locked.

Confirming the story, debutant director said, “I have been working on it for the past seven years. A new production banner will back the project. 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.” Priyanka, who is all set to kick start promotions for her Hollywood debut Baywatch, has yet another good film in her kitty. After Mary Kom, it would be her second stint at doing a biopic.

Although Jeetu Likhar grew up with strict parents and was never allowed to have videogames or consoles at home, his relationship with gaming started at a young age through social interactions at gaming centres and his friends houses. With the advent of social media and the internet, he fell in love with gaming and movies even more because of how strong the bond of the online community was. Although now he is married with two kids, a beautiful job, and a comfortable job at a bank, gaming will always hold a special place in his heart.
