Coincidentally, both the films have Shahid Kapoor in the lead. As per trade buzz, Shraddha Kapoor is now in the running to be cast opposite Shahid in two of his next movies, Milan Talkies and the Hamlet adaptation.
Milan Talkies was first offered to Priyanka Chopra, who even had a discussion regarding the script, but later there was no development in the project. Recently in an interview, the actress even said that she is “clueless” about the film.
As per sources, both producer Ekta Kapoor and director Tigmanshu Dhulia now want a fresh pair for the film, and are thinking of Shraddha Kapoor. The actress has proved her mettle in Aashiqui 2, and a lot of producers are keen to work with her.
“After Aashiqui 2, Tigmanshu feels Shraddha can carry off the complex dramatic moments as well as the light-hearted interludes in Milan Talkies,” a source is quoted as saying.
With Shraddha apparently on board, is Priyanka sulking over the snub! Perhaps no! Priyanka seems to be gravitating towards the lighter fun roles as she has done a series of heavyweight dramatic roles, claim sources.
Her current project, a biopic on Mary Kom, is emotionally and physically quite taxing, and the actress is looking for a change of mood with her upcoming movies.
