Piggy Chops had been toying with the idea of producing a film since a long time, but seems like the actress was waiting for just the right opportunity. And for her very first project as a producer, PeeCee has decided to collaborate with the National Award-winning director.
It was Madhur Bhandarkar’s Fashion which got the actress a National Award, and Priyanka is being doubly sure with her maiden venture. According to a Mumbai Mirror report, “Priyanka and Madhur had a meeting before she left to shoot the on-going schedule of the Mary Kom biopic.
She told Madhur that she was bowled over by the script and definitely wants to be a part of the project.” However at that time Priyanka Chopra was unable to give immediate dates, with her hands full of projects like Omung Kumar’s Mary Kom biopic and Zoya Akhtar’s Dil Dhadakne Do. Seems like Madhur Bhandarkar saw Priyanka’s eagerness to produce and act in the film.
A co-operative Madhur has shifted dates, and the shooting schedule of Madamji will being only in October 2014. The story of Madamji will revolve around the life of an actressturned- politician and is reportedly inspired from real life politician – Jayalalithaa.
