Global star Priyanka Chopra is back in the game, and how! While fans across the globe are keenly awaiting her movie announcements, the stunner has dropped one in style and it is all things intriguing. On Tuesday, PeeCee made an appearance on the latest episode of Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show and she was there to promote her upcoming Hollywood flick titled, Isn’t It Romantic. Her latest film, though, isn't what we want to focus on. Ellen and Priyanka had a small chat about the famous yet controversial documentary - Wild Wild Country and PeeCee revealed a piece of news we so wanted to hear!
Priyanka revealed that she is developing and producing a project on the life of Ma Anand Sheela and that she will be seen as the lead. The film is going to be directed by Academy Award winner, Barry Levinson, who is best known for his film - Rain Man. Priyanka revealed more about the film saying, "I am developing a feature with Barry Levinson. He is an iconic American director. We are developing it (from the perspective of) Sheela, who is this guru who originated from India. She was his right-hand woman and she was devious. She created a whole cult in America. He was called Osho. I don’t know if you’ve heard of him. I am developing that next for me to star in and produce."

For the unaware, Ma Anand Sheela was a charismatic and controversial Indian spiritual guru. She was involved in some questionable methods to spread the teachings of Bhagwan Rajneesh aka Osho in the United States of America’s state of Oregon. Last year, Netflix came up with a documentary titled ‘Wild Wild Country’ and it created a rage across the globe for its content and high viewership. Now it will be interesting to see our desi girl getting into the avatar of Sheela, a woman who took over the American press in the late 70s and early 80s, all thanks to her bizarre statements and phrases that included – Tough Titties!
