Aishwarya Rai’s replacement for Heroine is now juggling between Priyanka Chopra and Kareena Kapoor.
While Bhandarkar has been pursuing his Fashion leading lady Priyanka Chopra, currently on holiday in the United States, to sign on the dotted line, UTV head honcho Ronnie Screwvala is in talks with Kareena Kapoor.
The dates are being worked with both. Kareena is busy with Bodyguard, followed by Agent Vinod.
Priyanka, on the other hand, is committed to a film by Kunal Kohli and Anurag Basu’s Barfee. “Ronnie is trying to work the schedule around them so that the film can go on the floors soon.
Ronnie had called Kareena but since she was busy shooting for Bodyguard with Salman Khan, they could not meet immediately.
Priyanka is in LA and Madhur has spoken to her. He is waiting for her to get back.”
With search for a leading lady on in full swing, all that is awaited is the official announcement of the film getting back on track.
