As Bollywood’s inhouse global warmer Priyanka Chopra turns a year older, the entire Indian film industry looks at what she would do next.
Is she done with Bollywood for now? Is the oddly entitled The Sky Is Pink her last Indian film? Henceforth, is the West only the best for Priyanka? Is she taking a break to start a family?
No to the last question. No plans of motherhood yet, as far her close friends know. But as far as her Bollywoodcareer is concerned, we can tell you with absolute certainty that Priyanka is planning a very big splash in 2020.
“It’s a project that she will co-produce along with an Indian producer. Priyanka was keen to make this film with her dear friend and favourite director Sanjay Leela Bhansali. They spoke about it. But it didn’t work out. She is now in advanced stages of negotiation with a couple of top names for her co-production. If the partnership doesn’t work out she will go it alone,” says the informed source.
Sources say Priyanka may team up with Karan Johar or Siddharth Roy Kapur for this project that she has been dream-shooting in her head for some years now.
No matter who finally comes on board. Our Desi Girl will never abandon Bollywood. Her heart belongs to this side of the world.
