Actress Preity Zinta will play the leading role in Toronto-based filmmaker Deepa Mehta's next movie.

The film, titled Heaven On Earth , will narrate the tale of a young battered housewife stuck up in an abusive marriage.



The movie is inspired from the true tale of a Punjabi woman named Amandeep, whose disturbing story Mehta covered in her documentary 'Let's Talk About It'. Made last year, the documentary was about Indian women who were victims of domestic violence and abuse in Canada.

However, the protagonist in 'Heaven On Earth' is not called Amandeep. She is named Chand. Preity Zinta plays this role.

The film will not just show the domestic violence that Chand goes through. It will also explore the fantasies of a battered woman.

Actress Seema Biswas has also been signed to play an important role in the movie.

'Heaven On Earth' will be produced by David Hamilton who also produced Water . The film will be in English.

Deepa Mehta will shoot the film in India and Canada from November 5, 2007, onward.
