B-Town diva Priyanka Chopra, who has in recent years paved her way to Hollywood with debut TV series Quantico, is certainly going places. As she gears up for the release of her debut Hollywood film Baywatch alongside Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron on May 25th, she is already in talks for another project, a film titled A Kid Like Jake directed by Silas Howard reports Deadline. She will star alongside Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory), Claire Danes (Homeland) and Octavia Spencer (Hidden Figures).
The film is the story of Greg (Jim Parsons) and Alex (Claire Danes), a couple who are in the pursuit of getting their son admitted into private schools in New York. After they find out they cannot afford the tuition of these renowned institutions, they seek alternate methods, they try to peg their son as ‘a gender-variant’ (the four-year-old who prefers Cinderella to GI Joe) to try and apply for school scholarships.
Priyanka is said to star as Amal, a friend of the couple who is a single mom and amidst sorting out her love life she is also trying to figure out the school system.
