“Quantico” and “Baywatch” star Priyanka Chopra has revealed on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that she’s participating in a feature film remake of the Emmy-winning Netflix six-part documentary series “Wild Wild Country”.
That series followed the Rajneeshpuram community in Oregon. Filmmaker Barry Levinson will helm the movie and Chopra will star as Ma Anand Sheela, the highly influential and polarizing assistant to Indian religious guru Bhagwan Rajneesh (aka. Osho).
Chopra tells DeGeneres: “We’re developing it as the character of Sheela, who was this guru who originated from India, [Osho’s] right-hand woman. And she was just devious and created a whole cult in America, brought people here. [The doc] was amazing, and I’m developing that next for me to star in and produce, which I think would be really cool.”
Chopra will soon be seen in “Isn’t It Romantic” and recently married singer Nick Jonas.
