After a 3 year break from Hindi cinema, Priyanka Chopra has recently made a comeback into Bollywood with the film, The Sky Is Pink. The film also stars Farhan Akhtar, Zaira Wasim and Rohit Saraf in lead roles. Released on October 11 this year, The Sky Is Pink is romantic-drama, a love story seen through the eyes of their teenage daughter. The film has been gaining international applause since it was screened at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) where it reportedly received a standing ovation from the audience. After the success of The Sky Is Pink, Priyanka’s fans are eager to know about her upcoming projects including her upcoming Hollywood films.
Reportedly, Priyanka Chopra and the American actress, writer and comedian, Mindy Kaling are said to come together for a wedding comedy. It is said that the duo will shoot for the film in India. According to reports in a tabloid, Rajasthan and Delhi are among the prime locations that the makers are considering to shoot the film. A source close to the development of the film told the tabloid, “Since the script revolves around a desi wedding, the makers are looking at unexplored venues in Delhi and Rajasthan as the two places beautifully capture the essence of India. A luxury villa in Ranthambore has also caught their attention”.
The source added, "For now, the team is working on the screenplay. Once the script has been locked by August, a production team will fly down to do a recce across North India. Since there are a few similar themed films in production at the moment, including Mira Nair's series A Suitable Boy, the team will have to scout for unique locations in the cities." Earlier, Priyanka took to her Instagram to announce her collaboration with Mindy Kaling for their upcoming Hollywood project. She shared a picture with Mindy, along with writer-television producer Dan Goor, and wrote, "#PROUD @mindykaling @DanGoor."
In earlier interviews, Priyanka had also revealed that she will start working on a project based on the life of Ma Anand Sheela. The actress has joined hands with American director Barry Levinson for the project. A few months ago, it was also announced that Priyanka Chopra would next be seen in a superhero web film, We Can Be Heroes, directed by Robert Rodriguez. It is said to release on Netflix.
