The Dostana pairing of Priyanka Chopra and Abhishek Bachchan is all set to entertain the audience with a film inspired by a true life story. They will play Dangal actress Zaira Wasim’s parents in the flick.

According to a report, apart from Priyanka Chopra and the Guru actor, the next addition to the cast is Dangal and Secret Superstar actress, Zaira Wasim. She’ll be playing the young protagonist in the film, produced by Ronnie Screwvala and Siddharth Roy Kapur. Zaira will play the character of Aisha – a girl with an immune deficiency disorder and who at the age of 13 was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis. The desi girl and Abhishek Bachchan will play the teenager’s parents.

Talking about it, a source informed the publication, “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.”

Aisha was born with an immune deficiency disorder and has inspired several people despite her own struggles and illnesses. She has also written a book, My Little Epiphanies and was named an INK Fellow. Aisha was also a speaker at TEDx Pune in 2013. The teenager breathed her last at the age of 18 on January 24, 2015.
