Priyanka Chopra No one can play a better ‘junglee billi’ than me
Priyanka Chopra, who’s currently busy shooting for the third season of Quantico in Ireland is yet to announce her next Bollywood project after Jai Gangaajal in 2016. Though there are speculations that she might star opposite Salman Khan in Bharat, no official announcement has been made yet. Meanwhile, the actress is awaiting the release of her next Hollywood projects, ‘A Kid Like Jake’ and ‘Isn’t it Romantic’. With so many Hollywood projects in her kitty already, PeeCee is anxious to get a Bollywood film on her plate and we hope someone serves it soon. While there are reports of Shah Rukh Khan’s Don 3 being in pipeline, we hear there’s no place for Priyanka Chopra’s ‘Roma’ in the third part. While earlier reports suggested that Farhan Akhtar has replaced PeeCee as a cop in the movie, the actor later refuted all these stories.
Yes, we all believed that Priyanka Chopra’s Roma was as important to Don as SRK himself, but makers had some other plans. And though we agree that there’s no other actress who can play the junglee billi better, Priyanka too shares the same notion. In one of her early interactions during the promotions of Mary Kom, PeeCee had revealed why Don should not be tagged as her movie. She said, “I cannot say that Krrish 3 or Don 2 is a Priyanka Chopra film even though nobody can play a better Junglee Billi than me! I’m a part of these films — a very important part — but you can’t give me complete credit for them.” The conversation was regarding her comment on heroines should not be credited as 100 crore heroines when they are riding on the back of a hero.
A source close to DNA had revealed why Priyanka has no scope in the third part of Don franchise starring Shah Rukh Khan. They had reported saying, “The storyline is such that it doesn’t need Priyanka’s character. It’s likely to have a new cast, which will be locked soon.
