If industry gossip is to be believed, Priyanka Chopra will play Aamir Khan’s wife in his next film, a biopic on astronaut Rakesh Sharma, the first Indian to travel in space in 1984.
The film, directed by Mahesh Mathai, has Khan as co-producer along with Siddharth Roy Kapur. If the buzz is true, it will make Priyanka Chopra’s wait for her next B-Town outing after ‘Jai Gangaajal’ (2016) even longer. The film will not roll till mid-2018, or till Mr Perfectionist feels everything is in place.
Currently, Aamir is busy with Vijay Krishna Acharya’s ‘Thugs of Hindostan’, which also stars Amitabh Bachchan and Katrina Kaif. The film went on the floors in Malta earlier this month. This is Aamir’s second biopic after the grand success of ‘Dangal’.
