There is widespread speculation on whether Priyanka Chopra is finally quitting Bollywood to focus on her life with her husband Nick Jonas and on her career in the US. However sources in the know reveal that Priyanka is in talks with several filmmakers in Bolywood for possible projects.
“She is in negotiation with several prominent filmmakers including Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Siddharth Roy Kapur, Aditya Chopra, Karan Johar and Vishal Bhardawaj. She has no intentions of giving up her career in Hindi cinema,” says a source in the know.
The problem, if any, is with her formidable image.
Says a director-friend, “Priyanka just can’t pick on any Bollywood assignment because it has a big hero’s name or a big director’s name attached to it. Her role has to say something. She’s being watched very closely by fans across the world.”
This is the reason she chose to do a relatively small film like The Sky Is Pink rather than a mammoth production like Bharat with Salman Khan.
There are several possibilities as to what Priyanka can do next in Bollywood.And one of these possibilities is to produce her next Indian film herself. Sources in the know say there is a “strong possibility” of Priyanka starring in her next production. She already has her own production house in Mumbai that her mother captains. Priyanka can easily make the role and film of her choice happen.
In the West she is next working on a bio-pic on Ma Sheela, who partnered AcharyaRajneesh.The film will be directed by the distinguished director Barry Levinson
