After making her way in the West and finding the love of her life, Priyanka Chopra is back in the bay with an interesting project in her kitty, Shonali Bose's The Sky Is Pink. However, at a recent media interaction, veteran filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj confirmed that he is in talks with Priyanka about a film, which is most likely to go on floors next year.
PeeCee is currently in LA!
Talking about the same, Mr. Bhardwaj said: "Priyanka also wants to work with me. And we are working with each other. Hopefully, we will start the film next year." Bhardwaj and Chopra have earlier worked together in 2009's Kaminey and 2011's 7 Khoon Maaf, both of which turned out to be critically acclaimed movies.
Earlier sources did suggest that Vishal Bhardwaj's film was one of the many scripts that Priyanka was considering to come on board for. "Priyanka has received close to 25 scripts, including ones from Pink director Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury, Shimit Amin (Chak De! India), Ali Abbas Zafar (who is currently filming Tiger Zinda Hai with Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif), Kabir Khan (last directed Tubelight), Vishal Bhardwaj (producing Deepika Padukone's upcoming gangster film) and Dharma Productions," a source revealed.
By not revealing much about the project, the film is said to be an onscreen adaptation of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. On the work front, PeeCee has wrapped up the first schedule of Shonali Bose's film The Sky Is Pink before flying off to the US recently. She was spotted having a great time with fiance and American singer Nick Jonas.
The Sky Is Pink also features PeeCee's Dil Dhadakne Do co-star Farhan Akhtar and Dangal fame Zaira Wasim. In July this year, Priyanka quit Ali Abbas Zafar's Bharat with her then-unconfirmed engagement to Nick Jonas hinted to be as a probable reason.
Meanwhile in Hollywood, Priyanka Chopra has films like Isn't It Romantic? and A Kid Like Jake up for release. Priyanka Chopra and fiancé Nick Jonas had their roka ceremony in Mumbai on August 18, soon after which Nick flew back to the US and Priyanka joined him recently.
