Parineeti Chopra was tipped to work with Akshay Kumar in the Hindi remake of the south blockbuster Thuppakki. Alas, she couldn’t commit to the project because she’s contractually bound with Yash Raj Films.
It is being said that Parineeti was very keen to sign for the Hindi remake of Tamil blockbuster Thuppakki, directed by A R Murugadoss. She was offered the film by producer Vipul Shah on behalf of director.
Apparently, the Hindi version's lead actor Akshay Kumar was also interested in getting her on board for the project, but Yash Raj Films wouldn't release Parineeti to do the project, as she is bound by contract.
