The imagination has no hardbound script to follow. Speculative stories of why Priyanka Chopra is in India abound. The one that seems the most logical is also the most untrue.
According to a report in Pinkvilla, Priyanka would be meeting with filmmakers Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Vishal Bhardwaj to discuss possible projects.
The report states, “Priyanka’s association with Vishal Bhardwaj and Sanjay Leela Bhansali goes back a long way, and they have been meaning to collaborate for another project for a long time now. The directors have also shared a few ideas and stories with Priyanka, and she will be meeting them during this trip to take the conversations forward. However, this isn’t a very long trip and her plan is to accommodate as much as she can during this visit.”
However sources close to both Bhansali and Bhardwaj debunk this report as baseless.
A source close to Bhansali says, “He doesn’t even know Priyanka is in town, he has been shooting till late hours for Heeramandi.There is no project with Priyanka or anyone else right now.”
Vishal Bhardwaj with whom Priyanka has done Kaminey and Saat Khoon Maaf is also not contemplating any project with Priyanka Chopra.
“He would love to catch up with her though, if she has time,” says a source close to the auteur director.
