The Netflix documentary is going Hollywood.
The streaming giant’s six-episode documentary Wild Wild Country is getting adapted for the big-screen. The story of Indian guru Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, will star Priyanka Chopra as Ma Anand Sheela, the guru’s assistant and spokeswoman.
The news was announced by Chopra herself during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday.
“We’re developing it as the character of Sheela, who was this guru who originated from India, [Osho’s] right-hand woman. And she was just devious and created a whole cult in America, brought people here,” Chopra told DeGeneres. “[The doc] was amazing, and I’m developing that next for me to star in and produce, which I think would be really cool.”
The Quantico star has teamed with director Barry Levinson to bring the story of Bhagwan’s rise in the Pacific Northwest.
