Priyanka Chopra will star as a superhero princess with mystical powers in a new series of comic book novels, a Virgin Comics official said.
Virgin is still working on a title for the series and a name for Chopra’s character, who hails from a line of princesses with magic powers to battle evil.
Virgin Comics is a venture involving British billionaire Richard Branson, self-improvement guru Deepak Chopra and filmmaker Shekhar Kapur.
Initial images show the curvaceous Chopra clad in a fitted gold and black suit with billowing black hair, and another shows her wearing silver armour over a wispy white blouse.
“Collaborating with Priyanka to create a character around her brand — one that is bold, beautiful and smart — has already been one of the most exciting projects our team has worked on,” said Suresh Seetharaman, president of Virgin Comics, India.
“I love cartoons,” said Chopra in a statement, “so being able to create my own original superhero... is a dream come true.”
