For the past several years, there has been a discussion about the filming of the life of the late astronaut Kalpana Chawla, but no official statement has been revealed. Now it seems that this waiting that has been going on for years is on the verge of ending.
Actually, according to the filmbeat report, Yash Raj Films is going to put Kalpana Chawla’s life on screen. He can produce this film.
Kalpana Chawla Biopic Movie Direction
According to reports, this film can be made under the direction of Shimit Amin, who has also previously directed Shah Rukh Khan’s 2007 film Chak De India.
The plan to make this film has been going on for the last four years. Previously actress Priyanka Chopra was co-producing the film with Viacom18. She was also planning to act in this film.
Who will Play Kalpana Chawla
Apart from Priyanka, reports of Deepika Padukone playing Kalpana Chawla in this film were also reported.
However, it was later reported that the project had been canceled, as Kalpana’s husband Jean-Pierre Harrison did not give the rights to build it.
There is now speculation that YRF may produce this film. While so far no official statement has been revealed on this.
Indian proud girl Kalpana Chawla reportedly has logged in 30 days, 14 hours and 54 minutes in Space, which is an achievement in itself. She tragically passed away in 2003 when the space shuttle Columbia perished during entry into Earth’s orbit, almost 16 minutes before scheduled landing.
