Priyanka Chopra had claimed during her recent, brief visit to India that she has locked three Bollywood films. And with her name getting linked for a film with Sanjay Leela Bhansali and a biopic on Kalpana Chawla, we were anticipating an announcement soon.
We are so eagerly waiting for Priyanka Chopra to announce her next project but there has been no word about it from the actress. She has not revealed anything about Quantico season 3, her three upcoming Bollywood projects or if she has any Hollywood film in her kitty, other than soon-to-release Baywatch. But, fortunately for us, a Hollywood producer Paul Bernon might have spilled the beans about her next project.
Paul tweeted, “I am producing this & am so excited to work with Jim, Claire, @octaviaspencer @priyankachopra @michaelaWat!.”
Paul is producing a film titled A Kid Like Jake. He shared the news of Octavia Spencer joining the cast, and announced his involvement with the project, on Twitter. In the same tweet he tagged Priyanka Chopra as well, confirming her as a cast member.
Jim Parsons has HUGE fan following in India, thanks to the popularity of the TV seriesThe Big Bang Theory. Jim essays the role of the eccentric genius Sheldon Cooper in the comedy. Octavia Spencer too is well known name, courtesy her work in Oscar nominated movies like The Help and Hidden Figures. It will be so great to see our desi-girl Priyanka work opposite such massive stars.
Parsons said about the project, “That’s Wonderful Productions was founded to tell stories just like this one. From the moment we read Daniel Pearle’s beautiful play, A Kid Like Jake, we knew that this would be our first project for the big screen.”
Director howards said about the movie, ““We live in a world that cherishes a child’s uniqueness while paradoxically punishing difference. I’m interested in the ways that, even when acting out of love, people can do harm when confronted with the fear of the uncontrollable. How does a parent balance those intense pressures? These tensions fascinate me both as a filmmaker and as someone with intimate knowledge of our culture’s fixation on policing gender.”
