Priyanka’s Ex-BF Aseem Merchant Once Wanted To Make A Biopic On Her

Priyanka Chopra is currently on cloud nine with her personal and professional life being on its peak. The actress has already conquered Bollywood and Hollywood with her sheer dedication and hard work and recently, she also found her soul mate. The actress after dating for a few months with American singer Nick Jonas got engaged last month on her 36th birthday. The actress recently had a Roka ceremony in Mumbai and the couple officially declared it to the world. Well, the happy times are here for the diva.

Well, before the actress finally found the love of her life, Priyanka dated a number of men. One of them is Aseem Merchant whom she apparently dated in the early days of modeling. However, sadly their relationship didn't last long, and the two called it quits after Priyanka entered Bollywood.

However, a few years after PeeCee's Bollywood debut, Aseem who had turned a producer, decided to make a film on her. There was a strong buzz that Aseem's film was supposedly not only a chronicle of Priyanka's modeling days but also her fallout with her ex-manager Prakash Jaju over finances.

Priyanka was unhappy with this and expressed her displeasure over the making of the biopic.

She stated, "It would be extremely flattering for me if someone would make a biopic on my life, but this particular situation makes me very angry as I know what my family and I went through during that phase of our lives and what upsets me is that people want to glorify something which was a painful part in my life. I think it's extremely disturbing."

However, later Aseem clarified that the film titled 67 Days was on Jaju and he had no intention of making her feel bad.

Aseem stated, "The film is about Prakash Jaju, not Priyanka Chopra. It is about his experiences in Bollywood and will cover the entire entertainment industry. I respect and admire Priyanka. In no way am I trying to malign or hurt her. As a producer, I am only trying to make a realistic film."

Later Aseem decided to drop the idea of making this biopic after Jaju and Priyanka's fallout became public and he said mean things to her on Twitter through a series of tweets.

"The tweets of Mr Prakash Jaju are untrue, very disturbing and in bad taste I'd like to clarify here that neither am I in touch with him nor part of any of this negative activity , I was approached to produce the film '67 days' his biopic and thought it would make an interesting film about a celeb manager and his journey but distanced myself from this episode after seeing it being blown into another direction and have shelved the idea permanently of making that film , as I'd never want to hurt or upset Priyanka as she's one of the nicest, most hardworking and family oriented girl I've ever known I always wish her the very best!!"
