Aseem Merchant۪s ۪67 Days۪ has finally found its heroine in newcomer Sakshi Chaudhary. Chaudhary will be seen essaying the role of Priyanka Chopra in the biopic on the actress۪ life. Apparently, the newcomer will be studying Chopra۪s way of speaking and her body language very closely to get into character for the film.
Confirming her presence in the film, Chaudhary told IANS, Yes, I am playing the part in the film that you mention. I guess they thought I was suitable for the part. As far as studying Priyanka goes, I haven۪t done much of that so far. I was never star-struck. But she is a good actress. Hopefully, I will play a good actress well.
BizAsia had recently reported that Chopra was not exactly keen on the idea of this biopic being made on her life, as it centres around a period of time she and her family found quite difficult.
However, Merchant has gone on record to clarify that the film focuses more on Chopra۪s ex-manager, Prakash Jaju, than the actress herself.
