Priyanka Chopra working on Bollywood comedy series for ABC

One of Bollywood’s biggest stars is bringing Bollywood to Hollywood.

Priyanka Chopra is developing a comedy series for ABC that centers on a Bollywood star who settles down in the suburbs of America — and it’s not a biopic, Variety reports.

The story is actually based on the real life of Indian actress Madhuri Dixit, 50, who will executive produce the series along with Chopra, 35.

Indian actress Madhuri Dixit’s life will be the basis for Chopra’s new ABC series.
