Priyanka Chopra Jonas has secured a new role for herself and her production company, and the project is yet another adaptation of a best-selling novel by a South Asian author. That White Tiger star is set to headline Secret daughter along with Sienna Miller, who follows two women whose lives become connected after one has adopted the other’s child. Not to be confused with the Australian television program of the same name, the internationally acclaimed novel written by Shilpi Somaya Gowda will be adapted to the screen by Shruti Ganguly, a longtime producer, and directed by Singaporean director Anthony Chen. Here’s what we know so far about the upcoming movie:
Secret daughter Bog Plot Summary
Somer (Miller) is a newlywed and a wealthy doctor whose life seems to be perfect. But when she makes the devastating discovery that she is unable to give birth due to early menopause, she decides to adopt a baby girl, Asha, from an Indian orphanage. Asha was abandoned by Kavita (Chopra Jonas), a poor villager who feared that Asha would be murdered for being a girl after her first daughter became so. The book follows Somer, Asha and Kavita’s independent but forever connected journeys, and the women are put to the test as Asha returns to India to rediscover her roots.
Secret daughter Financial statements
Spoiler alarm! Asha wins a prestigious journalism internship that takes her to Bombay, where she learns more about the circumstances of her adoption and understands that her parents had no other choice. Kavita keeps thinking about Asha often, but the two do not meet. As Kavita is on her deathbed, she finally tells her husband about Asha, and he comes to the orphanage and searches for information about her secret daughter. The director of the orphanage tells him about the adoption and that Asha recently came in search of his biological parents, and they give him a letter from Asha.
Secret daughter Cast and cast
Chopra Jonas and Miller are linked to play Somer and Kavita, but the cast for Asha and secondary characters have not been announced. As mentioned above, Ganguly will write the adaptation and Chen will instruct.
Secret daughter Potential release date
With the film in pre-production, little is known about the expected production timeline. It is likely that we will have to wait until at least 2023 before this hits our screens.
