The new babe in town Parineeti Chopra has done something very bizarre! She turned down an opportunity to work with Bollywood’s megastar Amitabh Bachchan in Shoojit Sircar’s ‘Piku’! According to what we have heard, the babe has given a nod to another mega project and the actress had no qualms admitting that a bigger film take precedence over a role opposite Big B, “Who wouldn’t want be cast with Mr Bachchan? But unfortunately my dates for Shoojit’s film are clashing with another very big film to which I’ve already said yes. So I’ve to let go of this chance of working with Mr Bachchan. But I am sure I’ll have another chance soon. Neither of is going away anywhere in the near future.” she said.
Shoojit Sircar though couldn’t get Parineeti in his cast, he managed to rope in stars like Irrfan Khan, Amitabh Bachchan for the movie. However with Parineeti walking out of his pet project in the ‘n’th moment the director is now left in a lurch looking for a new leading lady. Shoojit said, “Piku is a character-driven father-daughter story. That’s the film I am directing next before I go on to my football film 1911 with John Abraham. My writer Juhi Trivedi who wrote Vicky Donor with me, has written Piku. There are essentially three characters in the film of the father, daughter and another man played by Irrfan. I’ve Bachchan saab’s dates and very frankly, all the other actors’ dates would have to fall in line with Bachchan Saab’s schedule.”
Who do you think will be perfect for the role which Parineeti was supposed to play? Can Anushka Sharma be a perfect replacement?
