The duo have been asked to join Farah Khan’s new film
Choreographer/director/actress Farah Khan’s ‘Happy New Year’ seems to be a reunion project in more ways than one. Besides it being her patch-up venture with buddy Shah Rukh, guess who’s been roped in to the film as well? We hear it’s none other than Priyanka Chopra! Even though we wondered whether the whole SRK-Gauri-Priyanka episode had slipped Farah’s mind, a source says that PC’s name popped up during the planning of the cast long before that issue came up…
Apparently Priyanka has managed to edge out the competition of other actresses for ‘Happy New Year’. A source reports, “Deepika is already starring opposite to SRK in ‘Chennai Express’, Anushka had date problems, and Kareena is enjoying her marriage time off and is in no hurry to take up anything soon.”
What about Shah Rukhs’s other supposed favourite, Katrina? “With Priyanka trying hard to step into Salman Khan’s camp, SRK tried his best leverage with Katrina but the actress showed no interest as she stonewalled all his efforts,” adds the source. On the other hand, Priyanka is in talks with Salman to sign a film. Will the actress be able to spare dates for ‘HNY’ with ‘Krrish 3’, ‘Gunday’ and ‘Mary Kom’ already in her kitty?
