It’s heard that one of Ekta Kapoor’s forthcoming films has Priyanka Chopra playing the lead, and Imran Khan was confirmed to play the main hero. However, Imran has now decided to opt out owing to non-availability of dates. Left with no option, the makers approached Shahid Kapoor.
The movie is going to be directed by the Paan Singh Tomar fame Tigmanshu Dhulia, and since Shahid Kapoor has never worked with the maverick, it will give him a rare chance to team up with the director.
If indeed Shahid says yes and Priyanka remains the heroine, it would be exciting to see the former lovers on big screen after a hiatus. Will they be able to recreate the same Kaminey chemistry? Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra last romanced onscreen in Teri Meri Kahaani (2012).
Why did Imran Khan bow out? Though Imran was keen to work with Ekta Kapoor again after Once Upon Ay Time In Mumbai Dobaara!, he was more interested in playing a Gujarati superhero in a film to be directed by Vikramaditya Motwane, reveal sources. Since the dates required for both the films were clashing, Imran had no option but to opt out from one, and he preferred Motwane’s film.
