Producer Karan Johar’s Agneepath remake was to begin its shooting this week but due to some issues suddenly cropping up, the shooting schedule got cancelled at the last minute.
Now that the leading lady of the flick, Priyanka Chopra is all free, she has decided to prepare for her role of a mentally challenged girl in director Anurag Basu’s film Barfee, co-starring Ranbir Kapoor.
“Yes, Priyanka’s shooting for ‘Agneepath’ got cancelled. But it was only because the shooting with the other actors that was going on from earlier went on longer than expected. Priyanka immediately got in touch with Anurag Basu and took the time to prepare for her part,” Priyanka’s business manager is quoted as saying by a news agency.
Though Anurag was busy with the pre-production work of the film, yet PC insisted him to take out time to help her prepare for the role.
“Priyanka would hear none of Anurag’s protestations. She just took over his time and insisted that they visit a couple of institutions for the mentally and physically challenged. She also got immersed in lengthy workshops and even convinced Ranbir Kapoor to join her,” a source told the news agency.
