It’s being reported that one of Ekta Kapoor’s upcoming ventures has Priyanka Chopra playing the lead while Imran Khan was confirmed to be paired opposite but now Imran has apparently opted out of the project due to his hectice schedule. So they decided the only other option was Shahid Kapoor.
The movie will be directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia of Paan Singh Tomar fame and Shahid Kapoor will be teaming up with the director for the first time.
If at all Shahid Kapoor accepts the project, it would be really interesting to see Shahid and Priyanka on-screen kickstarting their intense chemistry again. They created magic in Kaminey and hopefully they could carry that same standard for the upcoming flick. Their last flick Teri Meri Kahaani bombed at the box office.
And if you’re wondering why Imran Khan rejected to work with Priyanka Chopra in this project, it’s because he was more into playing a Gujarati superhero in a movie which will be directed by Vikramaditya Motwane. But the required dates for both films at once weren’t available and hence, they had to let Imran Khan go.
