After being seen together in films like Bluffmaster and Dostana, Abhishek Bachchan and Priyanka Chopra have been approached for Shonali Bose’s next which is allegedly based on the real-life story of Aisha Chaudhary.

Now, according to a Mumbai daily, it is believed that Zaira Wasim will play the role of Aisha, whilst Abhishek and Priyanka will essay the characters of the parents.

A source informed the daily: “Zaira really liked the script and has given her nod to the project. Shonali is currently busy with the pre-production and is hoping to start shooting by the middle of this year in Mumbai. Priyanka and Abhishek will play parents to Zaira’s character.”

For those who are unaware, Aisha was a motivational speaker who was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis at the ripe age of just 13.

However, that did not dull the shine on the young one and she went on to release a book titled My Little Epiphanies. She also held several motivational talks and speeches at the of 15.

Unfortunately, Aisha breathed her last on January 24, 2015, at the age of 18.
