Priyanka Chopra agrees to do Harry Baweja’s Love Story 2050
Love Story 2050 a film directed by Harry Baweja, which will see the launch of his son Harman Baweja, has faced its fair share of problems. Recently, just when Harry was finally ready to begin the shooting of the film, his lead actress, Kareena Kapoor decided to stage a walk-out citing date issues. The director went through a terrible loss, as the film had to be re-scheduled. However, the Bawejas can finally get on with their film as they have found a fine actress to replace Kareena.
Priyanka Chopra, who is also a good friend to Harman, has been signed on to play the lead opposite him in this futuristic science fiction film. Although the actress already has a tight shooting schedule, she is trying to accommodate Love Story 2050. “They were in a bit of a tight spot, and it was a friend’s career at stake. So I made a bit of an adjustment,” says Priyanka. She is fully aware of the fact that this role was earlier supposed to be done by Kareena. However, she has no qualms about this and states, “There are many actors who have done roles, originally slated for me and vice-versa, I have no issues, it's called destiny. Whatever is yours comes to you.”
Priyanka also states that she is not doing anyone a favor, except herself, as the role is a fantastic one where she gets to explore two different dimensions in the film. She also stated that the script was fantastic and that the Bawejas were paying her the price she asked for and hence she was merely making a few date adjustments to accommodate this good film. She is currently in Malaysia shooting for Farhan Akhtar’s film, Don. On Kareena walking out from the film at the last minute, Priyanka says, “I have no idea why she did something like that. It’s a role I’d go to any length to do.”
Director Harry too is thrilled the film will finally be able to take off and he claims that Priyanka is one of the best in the industry. He thinks that Harman and Priyanka will make good couple on-screen and will rock together. Debutant Harman will finally be stress-free now that all the problems plaguing his debut film are over. On his co-star Priyanka Chopra, Harman states, “We are certainly not seeing each other and she is only a dear friend. But more than that she is a fabulous actor and I cannot wait to work with her.”
Well what can we say except that; Kareena’s loss is Priyanka’s gain.
