Zaira Wasim, who has successfully made herself a household name through her Bollywood success Secret Superstar, will be back in another interesting role alongside Priyanka Chopra and Abhishek Bachchan.
According to reports, the Dangal actor will be seen in Shonali Bose’s next directorial that is inspired by the true-life story of motivational speaker, Aisha Chaudhary. Zaira Wasim will essay the role of Aisha in the film.
A leading tabloid quoted an inside as saying, “Zaira really liked the script and has given her nod to the project. Shonali is currently busy with the pre-production and is hoping to start shooting by the middle of this year in Mumbai. Priyanka and Abhishek will play parents to Zaira’s character.”
The role is truly on an inspiring character in today’s time. The story will pan out the life of Aisha Chaudhary, who was diagnosed with an immune deficiency disorder but has still motivated and inspired several people with her achievements. Aisha wrote a book, My Little Epiphanies. She was named INK Fellow and was also a speaker at TED x Pune in 2013, all this despite her own struggles and illnesses. Aisha Chaudhary died at the age of 18 in 2015. She is truly a character to be followed and inspired by!
Meanwhile, it has also been in reports that in the film Priyanka Chopra as well as Abhishek Bachchan will play the role of Aisha Chaudhary’s parents AKA Zaira Wasim’s parents. Now, that will definitely be very interesting!
