Since the time Priyanka Chopra started working in Hollywood, the girl is in news for some or the other thing. Be it big or small, she always makes it to the headlines. We got to agree that she is loved by the Western media as much as we love her.
A couple of days ago she was all over news as she announced her collaboration with Bollywood dhak dhak girl Madhuri Dixit for a comedy series.
One of the favorite parts of my job, is to be able to tell stories across genres, languages and to a varied audience. Today I’m happy to share with you another step I’ve taken on that creative journey, in my role as a producer. This particular story is one of a few Hollywood projects that I am currently developing. The incredible Madhuri Dixit’s real life has been the inspiration behind Sri Rao’s amazing story, and I can’t wait to work with the both of them to see how this will pan out. Again, it’s unchartered territory for me, producing a show for American television but I’m blessed to have a great set of partners in Mark Gordon Company’s Mark Gordon and Nick Pepper, along with ABC Studios to develop and produce this very fun idea. After having an incredible experience with them on Quantico, this seemed like a perfect extension of our partnership. I’ve only just begun and there is little I can share at this point about any of the projects but I’m looking forward to rolling up my sleeves and getting to work. Stay tuned. @abcnetwork #NickPepper #MarkGordon @madhuridixitnene @newyorksri @purplepebblepictures
For people who don’t know what we are talking about, she will be producing an American comedy series based on the life of Madhuri for ABC Studios. And the news has got many excited. After all, Madhuri has ruled the hearts of millions for a very long time.
The title of the show hasn’t been decided yet, but the show will revolve around how the gorgeous diva lived in the US when she shifted there after her wedding. The script will be written by Sri Rao who has also written the script for ‘General Hospital: Night Shift’. The serial will introduce us to that part of actress’s life that many of us are not even aware of and that’s the reason why people can’t wait to watch the show.

After Priyanka confirmed this news, everyone flooded her Twitter page with wishes. But what caught everyone’s attention was when ‘The Big Bang Theory’ star Kunal Nayyar tweeted approaching Priyanka for a role. Well, we ain’t joking—the actor is actually interested in working with her and he wrote: “In case you need a beautiful heroine @priyankachopra I’m available!”

However, PeeCee being her sweet self-wrote, “Haha. I’ll keep it in mind @kunalnayyar that’s a great thought.” And to
Tanmay, she advised don’t get into a fight! She tweeted, “Boys don’t fight.. this is an equal opportunity project!”
This is just so amazing! Wouldn’t it be wonderful if Priyanka and Kunal could collaborate too?
Well, that might happen someday but for now, we are pretty excited about Madhuri and Desi girl working together and can’t wait to get a sneak peek into what the show will offer us.
