Priyanka Chopra, the exotic babe of the industry might be doing another biopic soon. The news is that Agnidev, who is planning to do a film on Bollywood actress Parveen Babi's life is keen on signing Priyanka Chopra to play the character.


While the speculations are on that Agnidev Chatterjee might launch his son Akash in the film, this project which has been deemed as his most ambitious project till date and can have talented Priyanka Chopra too playing the yesteryear diva, Parveen Babi.

Bollywood director Mahesh Bhatt has also made two films on the actress's life, ‘Arth' and ‘Who Lamhe.' While the director is believed to have a great bond with Parveen Babi, the films made by him too seemed to take a dig on their relationship.

Though Agnidev claims that his film would touch a different angle of the actress's life, he also thinks that it would be perfectly apt if Priyanka plays the role on screen. “ My film is about an actress who, at the peak of her career, learns to deal with paranoid schizophrenia. Soon, stardom and adulation make no difference to her. It's sad that one of the most sought-after actresses of her era, who lived life on her own terms, fell prey to paranoia," said the director.

Though he said that he is not sure about the name of the female lead in the film, he has approached Priyanka Chopra and is still waiting for her nod. "I have approached her through my DoP, Kabir Lal. Let's see, if things work out... else, I will start the Bengali version by May-June. There is a strong possibility that I will launch my son, Akash, as a struggling director, who happens to be the actress' love interest. I am yet to zero in on the female lead,” Agnidev said.

We say a good news for Priyanka's fans!
