Parineeti Chopra signed on for ‘Golmaal Again’

Looks like filmmaker Rohit Shetty has finalised the leading lady for the fourth instalment of his hit franchise ‘Golmaal’. As per the buzz, Parineeti Chopra has been signed on for ‘Golmaal Again’.

Ever since the film was announced during the 10th year celebration of ‘Golmaal’ in July, there were a lot of speculations on who would play the female lead, as Kareena Kapoor had to opt out due to her pregnancy. Kareena was a part of ‘Golmaal Returns’ and Golmaal 3’.

Names of actresses Alia Bhatt and Shraddha Kapoor did the rounds for replacing Kareena, but it is Parineeti who has bagged the role.

A DNA report quoted a source saying, "The role required a pretty, bubbly girl. She plays a character, who is not seen by anybody except Ajay Devgn's character and is his partner in crime. It's an interesting, quirky role and Parineeti loved it."

The source further added, “Rohit was undecided between Shraddha and Pari and met both the actresses for a narration. Shraddha said she would get back soon, while Pari said yes without hesitation. She loves the brand and wanted to be part of a Rohit Shetty entertainer. It was this positive attitude that Rohit liked and so, he signed her immediately.”

According to the report, Rohit wants to announce the cast in his grand style, which includes a special photo session, and has therefore asked the ‘Dawat-e-Ishq’ actress not to reveal her role as yet.

‘Golmaal Again’ is set to roll on floors early next year and release on the occasion of Diwali, 2017.

Meanwhile, Parineeti is currently working on ‘Meri Pyaari Bindu’ opposite Ayushmann Khurrana, and will also be starring in ‘Takadum’ with her ‘Shuddh Desi Romance’ co-star Sushant Singh Rajput.
