Priyanka Chopra to play Ma Anand Sheela in upcoming international project

Priyanka Chopra will be portraying Osho disciple Ma Anand Sheela in an upcoming international project. The film will be directed by Oscar-winning director Barry Levinson, who is known for his works like Bugsy and Rain Man.
Speaking in a recent talk show, Priyanka said, “I am developing a feature with Barry Levinson. We are developing it from the viewpoint of Sheela, Osho’s right-hand woman." Apart from starring in the project, she is also set to produce the film.
It can be noted that the story of Rajneeshpuram — a controversial spiritual cult created by Osho and Ma Anand Sheela in Wasco County, Oregon — was made popular by the 2018 Netflix docu-series, Wild, Wild Country. Incidentally, filmmaker Shakun Batra is also developing a project on the same subject, with Aamir Khan expected to portray the role of Osho.
Priyanka Chopra, who was last seen in A Kid Like Jake and Isn’t It Romantic, also has Shonali Bose's Sky Is Pink, co-starring Farhan Akhtar in her kitty.
