She has shown keen interest in the subject which is based on a wife’s (Hadi Rani) sacrifice for her husband’s honour.

Hadi Rani, a legendary character, is the daughter of Hada Rajput who married Chundawat Chieftain of Salumbar, Mewar and sacrificed her life to motivate her husband to go to a war.

When Maharana Raj Singh (1653–1680) of Mewar called his son to join the battle against Aurangzeb, the Sardar (chieftain), having married only a few days earlier, hesitated to fight the battle.

However, to maintain his honour, he joined the battle regardless of his reservations but Chundawat asked his wife Hadi Rani to give him some memento to take to the battlefield.

Thinking that she was an obstacle in Chundawat’s path in honouring his duty for Mewar, she cut off her head and presented it to her husband. The Sardar, devastated but nevertheless proud, tied the memento around his neck by its hair. He fought bravely, making the Aurangzeb forces flee, and after his victory, he got to his knees and cut his neck, as he lost the desire to live.

And that’s the subject Priyanka wants to bring to life on the silver screen BUT
 will the project flesh out or not? will surely keep you updated.
