Priyanka Chopra aka PeeCee’s next release Isn’t it Romantic is to be released by Netflix on February 14, Valentine’s Day. There were rumours that the movie may release in theatres on Feb 14. Then, it would have clashed with Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy release. But now Gully Boy faces no threat as PeeCee’s movie is being released on Netflix.
It has been reported that there is not much of Priyanka in the movie as it is mainly around American comedian Rebel Wilson while other cast members play supporting roles. Priyanka is a ‘Yoga Guru’ in this film.
It is understood that PeeCee has been irked by the lack of meaty roles offered to her in Hollywood and so is looking homewards once again. She is to produce a biopic on Ma Anand Sheela the right hand woman of Bhagwan Rajneesh. This was revealed by PeeCee herself when she appeared in The Ellen De Generes Show.
The 36 year old former beauty queen and actor said she would partner with director Barry Levinson in producing a movie on the Netflix documentary ‘Wild, Wild Country’ which had won accolades.
PeeCee herself will play the role of Ma Anand Sheela. She said’ ‘We’re developing it as the character of Sheela, who was this Guru who originated from India [Osho’s right hand woman]. And she was just devious and created this whole cult in America, brought people here…. The documentary was amazing and I’m developing that next for me to star in and produce, which I think will be really cool.’
The Netflix serial had won critical acclaim and had got a Creative Arts Emmy for outstanding documentary in nonfiction series.
