Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra’s mother Madhu Chopra is not making an acting debut, her spokesperson has said amid reports that she is ready to foray into showbiz.
Earlier this month, it was reported that the “Mary Kom” star’s mother is all set to make her acting debut in the Marathi film “Ventilator”, which will be directed by Rajesh Mapuskar. It was even said that while Priyanka will play herself in the movie as a special appearance, Madhu will be seen playing her mother on screen.
However, denying this development, Madhu’s spokesperson said in a statement: “Dr. Madhu Chopra’s involvement in Purple Pebble Pictures’ Marathi film ‘Ventilator’ is in the capacity of a producer. All other reports with regard to her making an appearance in the film are completely baseless and false.”
However, Priyanka Chopra’s production house, Purple Pebble Pictures (PPP), has begun working on its first Punjabi feature film, which will be a coming-of-age drama. And Priyanka’s mother Madhu will be producing the project. The yet-untitled movie features Punjabi star Amrinder Gill in the lead role.
“It is a young boy’s coming-of-age story of unknowingly discovering his true identity. The film is already on floors with Amrinder Gill. It will be shot in various locations in India, including Punjab, and then in Canada as well,” a spokesperson said.
“Purple Pebble Production’s Punjabi film is not ‘Ek Onkar’ and it is yet untitled. A formal announcement of the title will be made soon,” the spokesperson added.
The film has been directed by Karan Guliani, who has also penned the story with Ambadeep Singh.
