This may sound absurdly improbable, considering her career is now in the poised-for-takeoff-again mode. But showbiz is often composed of the strangest narrative. And this may seem stranger than fiction.
But Parineeti Chopra actually said no to a Karan Johar film.
And we are’t speaking of a mere Karan Johar production. It was film directed by the superstar-director himself.But Parineeti had good reason to say no to Karan Johar.
Says a source from Dharma, “It’s true Karan offered Parineeti Chopra a film. But it was the lead in a short film that Karan is directing for producer Ashi Dua for Bombay Talkies 2.”
In 2013 Karan Johar had directed a segment of Bombay Talkiesentitled Ajeeb Dastaan Hai Yeh with Rani Mukherjee and RandeepHooda . When he was all set to do a sequel he approached Parineeti.
After she said no, the role has gone to Kiara Advani.
Says an informed source, “Parineeti doesn’t even want to talk about this. She is dead set on working with Karan Johar. But in a full –length feature film.”
But we wonder . Having said no to the short film would Karan Joharever consider Parineeti for anything else?
