Actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas claimed five years ago that she was working on a comedy based on the life of Bollywood superstar Madhuri Dixit-Nene. Chopra will also produce the show for ABC in the United States, according to reports. Sri Rao, who helmed Dixit’s upcoming online series “The Fame Game” and wrote for shows such as “General Hospital: Night Shift,” was set to write the pilot and serve as an executive producer alongside the wife of Says Sriram Nene.
But Dixit, in an exclusive chat with News18, confirmed the project was no longer happening, “There was a discussion going on and we were trying to pitch it and Shri Rao who got me the script for The Fame Game and also realized the show was involved in this project as well. But sometimes things work out and there are times when it doesn’t. We tried to get this sitcom approved, but it didn’t work out,” he said. she declared.
Dixit moved to Denver in the mid-2000s after marrying cardiologist Shriram Nene, and the show would focus on her life in suburban America. The show was to follow the performer as she moved to a new neighborhood where no one knew she was a global celebrity.
“It wasn’t exactly my autobiography. It was part fiction and part fact. They were going to take some examples from my life, including the fact that I was a Bollywood actor before moving to Denver where no one really knew me. So what happens in such a situation? But it’s done and we’re not working on it anymore,” she said.
Dixit will make her OTT debut in Netflix’s upcoming thriller “The Fame Game,” in which she plays Bollywood star Anamika Anand, whose mysterious disappearance sets off a chain of events that will reveal terrible secrets about her life. Although Dixit is a superstar in her own right, she says there are no parallels between her character Anamika Anand and her own life. “Anamika’s equation with her family, whether with her husband or her mother, is different from mine. He is a fictional character. You’ve read so many stories about showbiz. I think the writer Sri Rao took these examples and weaved them into Anamika’s life. This is an exaggerated representation; not all movie people are like that,” she says.
