Though it is pretty clear by now that Priyanka Chopra’s next Bollywood assignment will be Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s production Gustakhiyan, the speculation about her co-producing the film is dismissed by sources close to Bhansali as “completely baseless”.
“As of now, they are mostly working together on Gustakhiyan, but only as a producer and actress. It will not be a co-production,” says the source. It’s not quite clear when Priyanka will get the time to do an Indian film. She has signed two other Hollywood films, which will keep her busy till the end of 2018. The insider adds, “If she is unavailable for an extended period, Bhansali may offer the role of author Amrita Pritam to someone else.” The movie recreates the stormy relationship between poet Sahir Ludhianvi and author Amrita Pritam.
