Priyanka Chopra, as we all well know by now, is very keen to be part of Rohan Sippy’s film. Rohan who had earlier worked with Priyanka in Bluff Master was also keen to cast her in his Goan drug-busting film. Sippy wanted to cast Priyanka in a powerful role opposite the Southern star Rana Daggubati.
The earlier plan was to cast Priyanka opposite Abhishek. But now a new girl will be paired with Abhishek while Priyanka was seriously considered opposite Daggubati.
Says a source, “Unfortunately the dates on which Priyanka was required for Rohan’s film clashed with Vishal Bharadwaj’s film.”
After Kaminey Priyanka has a unique chemistry with Bhardwaj. In Vishal’s Ek Bataa Saat (which means ‘1 into 7’) she plays a woman with seven husbands, a big challenge for the actress.
Says a source, “There was no way Priyanka could let go of Vishal’s Ek Bataa Saat. So she regretfully opted out of Rohan’s film.”
Now Rohan says he would probably have to cast newcomers opposite both Abhishek and Rana Daggubati.
