Priyanka Chopra reveals truth behind signing Bhansali's film opposite SRK
Speculations were rife that Priyanka Chopra, who has to do two Bollywood films next year, has signed her next project with Sanjay Leela Bhansali. It is said that she will team up with her ‘Don’ co-star Shah Rukh Khan for the biopic on legendary poet Sahir Ludhianvi.
Addressing the assumptions, the ‘Bajirao Mastani’ actress said that she can never refuse Bhansali, but mentioned that she has not been offered the film as yet.
“Yes, I am meeting Sanjay sir and we always discuss work and he is someone I would work with all my life until the time he wants to work with me. I am his eternal fan. Every time we discuss a film but we have to still figure out which one will it be. I haven’t given my commitment to any Bollywood film yet. I am not someone who says no to Sanjay sir,” Priyanka told Pinkvilla in an interview.
Priyanka, who is currently in India for a few weeks, revealed about her Bollywood plans at the Stardust Awards night, where she received the Global Icon of the Year award. She has been reading scripts and meeting filmmakers. The actress was reportedly, spotted at Bhansali’s house for quite a few times recently, which fuelled the speculations.
Meanwhile, reports of Shah Rukh collaborating with his ‘Devdas’ director after a gap of over a decade, surfaced in March this year, and ever since, there were reports that the ‘Dilwale’ actor will play the lead in Bhansali’s next project after ‘Padmavati’.
If Priyanka eventually, signs this project, then it will be her third collaboration with Shah Rukh after ‘Don’ and ‘Don 2’, apart from her special appearances in the superstar’s other films. She will also work with Bhansali for the third film after ‘Bajirao Mastani’ and ‘Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela’, in which she had a special song.
Priyanka will be next seen in her Hollywood debut ‘Baywatch’ starring Dwayne Johnson. She will be seen in the role of antagonist Victoria Leeds in the action comedy set to release on May 26, 2017.
