Parineeti Chopra’s hot photo shoot was for ‘Sultan’ audition

Bollywood actress Parineeti Chopra recently shared pictures of her fitness photo shoot and the ‘Ishaqzaade’ girl does look sizzling in her transformed avatar. Although she may have said that it was to shed her chubby look and portray herself as a strong and confident girl, reports are rife that the photo shoot was a part of her audition for ‘Sultan’.

‘Sultan’ which has two leading ladies in the film, has not announced any actor as yet, but several names were doing the rounds, including Parineeti. Having worked for Yash Raj Films productions like ‘Kill Dil’, ‘Dawat-e-Ishq’ and ‘Shuddh Desi Romance’, the actress was almost finalised by ‘Sultan’ producer Aditya Chopra. However, Salman Khan apparently, did not think she would fit the part, and therefore, the actress did the photo shoot to prove her capability.

“Parineeti Chopra knew about ‘Sultan’ since a long time. After ‘Kill Dil’ she had decided to get fit and lost a lot of weight. She wanted to be a part of ‘Sultan’ and when she heard that she may not make the cut for the film, she worked extra hard,” a Bollywoodlife report quoted a source close to the film as saying.

This photo shoot that she released now was actually done for the audition of ‘Sultan’ and to prove that she can play a wrestler. However, things didn’t materialise, the source added.

Recently, Parineeti tweeted that she is not a part of ‘Sultan’. “Guys, I am not doing Sultan, please put all rumours and speculations to rest and let me announce my next film when the time is right,” she had posted on the micro-blogging site.

The names of actress Deepika Padukone and Kriti Sanon also cropped up as the female leads of ‘Sultan’, but Deepika has denied doing the film.

‘Sultan’ has already gone on floors and is slated to release on Eid next year.
