Ekta Kapoor has reportedly hired Priyanka Chopra for a two film deal: An item number, a mujra for Sanjay Gupta’s ‘Shootout At Wadala’, which headlines John Abraham, Anil Kapoor and Kangana Ranaut in the lead, and a lead role in Tigmanshu Dhulia’s ‘Milan Talkies’ opposite Imran Khan. Known for their utter professionalism, both Priyanka and Ekta are sure to deliver better returns from their new releases.
Says the source, “The deal at the moment is for two films . Priyanka plays the lead opposite Imran Khan in Tigmanshu Dhulia’s film. She’d also do the item song in Shootout At Wadala, the first item song of her career (not counting the romantic number she shot with Shah Rukh Khan in Billu).”
Since PeeCee and Imran Khan will be coming together for the first time, it is heard that the director of ‘Milan Talkies’, Dhulia plans a character-familiarization workshop with the duo, on location.
In the meanwhile, Priyanka’s next film Zanjeer will also see her do an item song. However, PeeCee says, “Zanjeer is my film, so I don’t know whether it is an item number technically, but it will be an item.”
