According to reports, good friends Priyanka Chopra and Abhishek Bachchan might collaborate once again on a Bollywood project. The last film which they did together was the Tarun Mansukhani directorial ‘Dostana’ (2008). It has been a decade since the duo has not done a film together, so the news of them coming together has got their fans really excited. The project that the actors have been approached for is, reportedly, based on a real-life story of a girl called Aisha Chaudhary. Aisha was born with an immune deficiency disorder and diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis at the tender age of 13. She breathed her last in 2015, at the age of 18. But in between this, she had earned name and fame as a motivational speaker and had a book to her credit.
Filmmaker Shonali Bose, who rose to fame after helming the 2015 film ‘Margarita with a Straw’, has been signed to direct this film. “Shonali met with Abhishek recently on the sets of Manmarziyan and shared the idea with him. He liked it and she will be giving him the final narration soon. If he comes on board, Priyanka and he will play parents to the young protagonist casting for which is currently underway. Meanwhile, Shonali is working on the script and hopes to start shooting by the year-end,” informs a well-placed source to a tabloid.
The untitled film will be produced by well-known producers Ronnie Screwvala and Siddharth Roy Kapur.
An official announcement is awaited.
