Priyanka approached for a biopic on Padma Shri Kalpana Saroj?

Saturday, October 31, 2015

Priyanka Chopra, who had played a boxer in her first ever biopic Mary Kom by Omung Kumar, seems to have been approached for another inspiring biopic-that of Padma Shri recipient Kalpana Saroj.

For those who do not know this, Kalpana was married off at the young age of 12 to a man twice her age. After suffering physical abuse at the hands of her in-laws, she was rescued by her father and brought back to her village. After being ostracized by the villagers, Kalpana moved to Mumbai at the age of 16 and started working in a garment factory sewing clothes initially. Later on she started a tailoring business after procuring a government loan thereby kick-starting her entrepreneurial ventures. Today she is a multi-millionaire who is in charge of $112 million worth business ventures. Kalpana was honoured with the Padma Shri in 2013. Though Priyanka has not confirmed this, Kalpana confirmed about being informed that the actress has been approached for a biopic on her life.

Priyanka will be next seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Bajirao Mastani and Prakash Jha's Jai Gangaajal.
