“The movie is based on Aisha’s life and her book My Little Epiphanies. Priyanka and Farhan will play her parents’ role. Zaira Wasim will be portraying Aisha’s role in the film," revealed a source.
Talking about the film, the jury in a statement said, “The script is a complex narrative about fate. How does a girl who is suffering from a life-threatening disease feel? Aisha tells us her fate in a nonlinear way as a love story of her parents. The script is about to become an extraordinary experience that can truly inspire, challenge and entertain audiences when it is further developed in a consequent way.”
Even after being diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis, Aisha's spirit did not die. At a very young age, she started speaking on platforms like TEDx and INK among others. With her never say die attitude, she inspired people. Unfortunately, at the age of 18, Aisha bid adieu to the world.
On the work front, Priyanka Chopra will soon begin shooting for Salman Khan starrer Bharat. Helmed by Ali Abbas Zafar, the movie also stars Disha Patani, Sunil Grover, Shashank Arora and Tabu.
