Renowned filmmaker Richie Mehta, known for the highly acclaimed series Delhi Crime (2019), is embarking on a new project centered around India’s independence era. With his upcoming period drama, Mehta intends to bring attention to the often overlooked women who played crucial roles in the Indian freedom struggle. These women’s contributions have been overshadowed by the prominence of figures such as Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, and Mohammad Ali Jinnah. The talented filmmaker has reportedly initiated talks with Priyanka Chopra Jonas, a renowned actress, to take on the lead role in the series.
Unveiling Untold Stories: Exploring Women’s Perspective in India’s Freedom Struggle
The motive behind the creation of this period drama is to examine the Indian freedom struggle from the perspective of women. According to a source, the series will delve into the challenges, sacrifices, and achievements of these women. It aims to shed light not only on the notable contributions of figures like Kasturba Gandhi, Sarojini Naidu, and Aruna Asaf Ali but also on the experiences of other female freedom fighters whose voices have often been overlooked. By exploring their narratives, viewers will gain a deeper comprehension of the intricate series of events that shaped India’s history. Richie Mehta, considering Priyanka Chopra Jonas’ strong personality and her ability to fully immerse herself in diverse roles, believed she would be the ideal choice for this project.
If everything falls into place, this project will add to the already impressive list of endeavors for the actor. Priyanka Chopra Jonas already has the second season of Citadel, the series Heads of State, and the Hindi film Jee Le Zaraa lined up. These upcoming projects reflect her continued ambition and dedication to her craft.
