Speaking about movies regarding the Osho and his bioterrorist assistant Ma Anand Sheela, people often think about the Netflix series 'Wild Wild Country'. However, the movie with the same concept that Priyanka Chopra will take part in - entitled 'Sheela' will not focus on the same story.

On February 19, media outlets have reported that the Bollywood diva Priyanka Chopra will take the leading role of Ma Anand Sheela in Amazon Studios' Sheela. The movie will focus more on the background story of the real-life bioterrorist. The actress has spoken about her roles in that movie while taking part in The Ellen Show, but the news is only confirmed recently.

'Sheela' is the movie inspired by Netflix's hit 'Wild Wild Country', which features a similar concept of the real-life terrorist attack in 1984 in the land of the US. Amazon Studios is the one in charge of producing this film under the directing of the renowned director Barry Levinson (winning Best Director Oscar in 1989 for his movie “Rain Man”).

If you somehow didn't know about this incident, Ma Anand Sheela is the unassuming perpetrator which has conducted the historical bioterrorist attack in the US. To be more specific, she has poisoned several local restaurants in Oregon in order to manipulate the election result. At the same time, she's also the spiritual adviser of Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh (a.k.a Osho) - the leader of the Rajneesh movement.

Ma Anand Sheela was sentenced with a 20-year sitting behind bars, but eventually got released only after 39 months. Serving as the brain of the operation, Sheela was accused of multiple crimes, including mass poisonings, murder and many more. She's still alive now, if you're wondering.

On the main story, aside from taking part in as the main character, Priyanka Chopra will also contribute to the movie in the producing aspect beside the director Barry Levinson. According to the early information, 'Sheela' will mainly focus on how Ma Anand Sheela managed to conduct the bioterrorist attack that has poisoned 751 individuals. However, it seems that real Sheela is not going to watch this movie anyway.
