Ma Anand Sheela has always been a controversial figure but she shot to international fame again following the release of the popular documentary, Wild Wild West. Now, the former aide to Osho Rajneesh has opened up about the two biopics being made about her – one starring Priyanka Chopra and the other starring Alia Bhatt.
In a recent interview Ma Anand Sheela hopes that the biopics will focus on her entire life instead of just the scandals she was so infamously involved in. “Well, I sometimes chuckle. Sometimes they will have to do deep searching into my character. They have to move a little bit away from scandal. And I don’t know if they can. And if they don’t, I take it as an impression of me they are doing,” she said.
Earlier this year, Sheela also appeared in Shakun Batra’s one-hour documentary called Searching For Sheela. According to media reports, Shakun Batra is the man behind the Alia Bhatt – Sheela project. “It’s an ambitious show, it’s something that’s very close to my heart…” he had told a leading daily earlier this year.
