Chalwa was among the seven crew members who died aboard the Space Shuttle Columbia explosion in 2003.
India West reports that Chopra’s team has been involved in this project for a year. Director Priya Mishra is behind this project and has even met with Chopra’s parents about it.
“I was last heading a TV channel creatively and post-2011, quit to pursue filmmaking,” Mishra told Mid Day. “This is one of the two scripts that I have written.”
Chopra is a mega-star in India and has expanded her name recognition in the U.S. with her own weekly television series on ABC.
“The film will be mounted on an international scale. A new production company, Getway, is likely to produce the biopic,” a source told Mid Day.
Chopra recently ended filming on Quantico and will soon be promoting her next film, Baywatch, which will be released in late May.
