Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra is being paid the ultimate compliment. A comic book character has now been developed based on the hot star.
Indian audiences will soon get to see Priyanka Chopra as an animated superhero with Virgin Comics set to release to range of comic books, animation and games featuring the sensational star.
"The potential for this is huge and in India right now there is lack of great female super hero characters. She is as an aspirational figure someone both females and people of all ages can look upto I think this Priyanka has served in real life and now we take her to the fictional world it is going to be even better," said Sharad Devarajan, CEO, Virgin Comics.
And being an all-action babe comes only naturally to Priyanka Chopra whose onscreen characters have always held their own in the stunts department.
"It was great fun, you have never seen a girl play such kind of a charater like this before," said Priyanka.
Priyanka stars as an adopted girl and the latest in a line of princesses with great mystical power and a sworn duty to destroy evil wherever it lurks. The series is set to launch in 2008.
The character based on Priyanka Chopra is not Virgin Comics' first tryst with Indian animation, the group also has a series based on the Ramayana as well as several other comics with ideas developed by author Deepak Chopra and filmmaker Shekhar Kapur.
