After her Hollywood outing, Baywatch, Priyanka Chopra has finalised her next Hindi film, which will be announced sometime this week. Yes, PeeCee has decided to sign Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s production – Gustakhiyan, which also stars Irrfan Khan as the Indian poet and film lyricist Sahir Ludhianvi. Priyanka, on the other hand, will be seen essaying the role of his muse and Indian poetess and writer, Amrita Pritam. Even though the film is finalised, there’s still some time before it goes on floor, as Priyanka is occupied with her international projects.
As a source revealed to DNA After Hrs, “Priyanka has already signed two Hollywood films and has the third season of Quantico as well. So, the dates she initially gave to Bhansali will now be taken up by her Hollywood commitments. Her team is currently figuring out new dates for Gustakhiyan.” That leaves Irrfan free for the time being. The source added, “When Priyanka gave her dates, Irrfan also adjusted his dates accordingly. Since the schedule has now changed, Irrfan’s date diary has gone haywire, too. Once Priyanka gives her dates, Irrfan too plans to accommodate the same in his schedule.” (ALSO READ – Priyanka Chopra wants a bigger star than Irrfan Khan to be cast in Gustakhiyan)
From what we hear, PeeCee has loved the script and doesn’t want to let go of the film. Bhansali, too, wants to cast her and Irrfan together, as he thinks the pairing will be perfect for this film. In spite of the big changes in the dates, everyone is complying with no complaints. Apart from Gustakhiyan, Priyanka is reportedly going to play late Indian astronaut Kalpana Chawla in her biopic too. The makers have even confirmed it, but PeeCee has chosen to remain mum.
