Former Miss World Priyanka Chopra is the most bankable Bollywood star to cast in a film, she has only been doing India proud all across the word. From winning international awards to featuring in the TIME magazine, the actress has surely come a long way. With rumors going strong that she will be seen opposite Aamir Khan in Rakesh Sharma's biopic, our excitement knew no bounds. News just in, Aamir has apparently walked out of the film.
Salute was slotted for an Independence Day release
In the film that is tentatively titled as Salute, Aamir has backed out owing to some disagreements with the makers of the film. A source told a leading daily that, “There were some points of disagreement between him and the creative team.” Aamir has always had the reputation of being a perfectionist and wanting things done in a certain way, we wonder what creative differences the makers and the actor have had. Leaving the fans heartbroken, it seems like we'll have to wait a little longer to see our favorite Jodi team up for an interesting project.
Reports suggest that Priyanka will be playing Sharma's wife Madhu, and will also essay the role of an astronaut. A source had earlier told the daily that PeeCee has given her nod for the film and has urged the makers to begin their pre-production work. “Priyanka met the makers and has asked them to start the pre-production work on the film. This will be the first film to go on floors right after Quantico if all goes well.”
Directed by Mahesh Mathai and will be jointly produced by Aamir, Screwvala and Kapur under their banners AKP, RSVP and Roy Kapur Films respectively.
