Kalpana Chawla had an extraordinary journey from a small town in Karnal to conquering space. She has set an exceptional example of what a woman can achieve. Being the first Indian woman in space, her achievements are known to all. But her journey is untold.
But not anymore, folks. A biopic on Kalpana Chawla is underway, and Priyanka Chopra would be essaying her role. A year back, Viacom 18 had announced about this film, and now the script and the lead role, both have been finalized.
The film will be directed by Priya Mishra. It is her first film, and she has spent almost seven years researching on this project. She says, “I have been working on it for the past seven years. A new production banner will back the project.”
Also, she has met Kalpana’s parents several times as part of her research. Previously, Priya was heading a TV channel, and later she quit that post to pursue filmmaking. And since then, making a film on Kalpana Chawla has been her sole aim.
The production company says, “The film will be mounted on an international scale.” Well, we can’t wait for PC to play this inspirational role. From a boxer to an astronaut, she is really flying high. Wishing you best, Piggy chops.
