Actress Priyanka Chopra is collaborating with top American writer Mindy Kaling alias Vera Mindy Chokalingam for a Hollywood-Bollywood wedding film project that also puts PeeCee on the producer’s chair.
Reports filtering in from Hollywood state that the film is a funny take on a multicultural wedding and is set in India and the United States. Sources now say that though Mindy is well aware of the different Indian cultures, PeeCee is giving her inputs from her personal experience of organising such a wedding last year.
Billed as a Crazy Rich Asians meets My Big Fat Greek Wedding’ project, the film is being written by Mindy along with Dan Goor, the co-creator of Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
Priyanka shared the news on Instagram as well. “Two women with a passion for telling good stories, just got the green light to THEIR story THEIR way. So proud of this incredible partnership with @mindykaling and #dangoor! We are about to show you what it means to be modern, global, and Indian. See you at the cinema! (sic)”
“PeeCee will be giving her inputs but it’s not an inspiration from her personal wedding story. It’s just that PeeCee was apt choice for the role after her wedding with Nick Jonas which co-incidentally can be compared to the storyline of the film,” says source.
Incidentally, while PeeCee has become one of the hosts for the Met Gala at New York this year, Mindy’s last appearance as an actor was in Ocean’s Eight last year.
