Priyanka Chopra Doing a Movie ala ‘Heroine’


It seems ‘Heroine’ director Madhur Bhandarkar’s bad luck has not yet ended. Not only was his dream project shelved because of the pregnancy of its lead actor, Aishwarya Rai, but he cannot seem to find a suitable replacement despite his best efforts to see the film through no matter what.

What’s worse, one of the possible candidates to replace Rai, is now doing a film essaying a very similar character to Bhandarkar’s ‘Heroine’ only she is doing the film with filmmaker Kunal Kohli.

According to reports, Priyanka Chopra has teamed up with her ex-boyfriend Shahid Kapoor for the movie about an actress’s way to the top in 70s. Bhandarkar’s ‘Heroine’ is about a similar actress, but set in the 90s.

A source said, “Priyanka will be doing exactly what Ash couldn’t do. She is playing a heroine who fights her way to the top and how she is exploited and exploits others en route. We were anyways gearing up to release Priyanka’s movie ahead of Ash’s just to steal the thunder. But now with Ash’s project getting shelved, the roads are clear for us.”

The source adds, “This is the real reason why Priyanka said ‘no’ to Madhur’s Heroine. She knew that she is working on a similar script. Just the setting is different. Ash was supposed to be an aggressive heroine of the 90s and Priyanka of the late 70s. On top of that, Kunal was heavily banking on the chemistry between Shahid and Priyanka and also their break-up would be harped upon during the promotions.”
