Priyanka Chopra may have become a global star and found herself an American fiancée, but she is in no mood to say goodbye to Hindi films anytime soon.
The actor, who got engaged to singer Nick Jonas on Saturday, will reportedly star in the fourth installment of the homegrown superhero Krrish franchise.
According to a report, Priyanka has already given her nod to working alongside Hrithik Roshan in Krrish 4. “Priyanka has definitely given the green signal for the next installment of Krrish. She has been a part of the last two Krrish films. When Rakeshji sounded her out about the fourth film, she happily agreed,” a source close to the family said.
Revealing that Rakesh Roshan was initially a bit hesitant about casting PeeCee as she become a worldwide sensation now, the source added: “Rakeshji thought she may not want to be part of a desi franchise where she doesn’t play the main character. But, Priyanka’s association with the Roshans goes back a long way. She has always been a loyal big-hearted girl. At a time when Sunny Deol was down and out, she agreed to play his leading lady because she had made her debut with him. When a down-and-out producer KC Bokadia wanted to complete a project with Govinda and Priyanka, she agreed knowing it would embarrass her career. Loyalty is big for Priyanka.”
PeeCee is likely to start Krrish 4’s filming in mid-2019. Currently, she is also working on Sky Is Pink, a tentatively-titled film directed by Shonali Bose. Produced by Siddharth Roy Kapur and Ronnie Screwvala, it also stars Farhan Akhtar and Zaira Wasim in key roles.
