Ma Anand Sheela sends legal notice to Priyanka Chopra Jonas over biopic

The Indian-born American-Swiss convicted criminal and former spokeswoman of the Rajneesh movement, Ma Anand Sheela has sent a legal notice to Priyanka Chopra Jonas after it was reported that the actress was planning to develop a show based on her.

She was cited in Hindustan Times saying, “I told her I do not give her permission to do [the] film because I have not chosen her… In Switzerland, we send legal notices very simply. I sent her an email which is accepted there as legal.”

She added that Chopra Jonas had not responded to her legal notice, “Not even a courtesy letter that they received my notice.”

Asked who she would like playing her in a biopic, she said, “I saw bits of a film that my sister was watching, and I thought, I looked like Alia Bhatt when I was young. I asked my sister, ‘Did I look like her when I was young? Do you remember’? And she said, ‘Yes, you do’. I feel she has the spunk in her that I had. Spunk is very necessary and it is very natural, it is not artificial, not cosmetic, it is genuine.”

Previously, Chopra Jonas had revealed on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ that she was planning to make a show on Maa Anand Sheela. She had said, “I am developing a feature with Barry Levinson. He is an iconic American director. We are developing it (from the perspective of) Sheela who is this guru who originated from India. She was his right-hand woman and she was devious. She created a whole cult in America. He was called Osho. I don’t know if you’ve heard of him. I am developing that next for me to star in and produce.”
