Talks are that Priyanka will be donning the role of a politician for her ‘Fashion’ director, the ace filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar. The project in question is Bhandarkar’s upcoming film ‘Madam Jee’ which is alleged to be inspired from Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalitha, who formerly was an actress.
Although the National Award winning director never repeats his heroines, with ‘Madam Jee’ he made an exception since he wanted to work with Priyanka again post ‘Fashion’. Besides, it is said that while he was working on the script he visualised it with the actress in his mind.
Initially Vidya Balan and Deepika Padukone were considered for the female lead in this project.
Expected to be a typical Bhandarkar realistic film, ‘Madam Jee’ is said to be the story of a string woman’s journey through life.
