A leading English tabloid reports that popular actress Priyanka Chopra, who has been keeping quite busy with the shooting of her international show, ‘Quantico 3’, might put her papers down if the show extends to season four. After receiving worldwide acclaim with her international show, she wants to focus on her Hindi film career again and is keen to sign Ali Abbas Zafar’s forthcoming film ‘Bharat’, featuring Salman Khan. The actress, who was on a short trip to India last week, had reportedly gone through the script of ‘Bharat’ before heading off to Ireland to begin the next schedule of ‘Quantico 3’.
A well-placed source reveals, “Priyanka was quite taken by the script of ‘Bharat’. What also added to her excitement was that it would give her the chance to team up with Salman after a decade. But she’s not signed on the dotted line yet.”
Priyanka Chopra and Salman Khan were last seen in the 2008 film ‘God Tussi Great Ho’. If the actress gives her final nod to the big-ticket project, the next season of ‘Quantico’ may not just happen. An insider reveals that even Priyanka is not very much keen in having a fourth season. “Priyanka feels the show will lose steam if they continue with more seasons. Before pursuing any more international offers, she wants to do a Hindi film.”
“Any clarity on ‘Quantico’s next season will only come after the third season has been aired. She won’t say no to them if the next season is sanctioned, but she fears being repetitive,” adds the source.
Chopra, who was last seen in Prakash Jha’s ‘Jai Gangaajal’ (2016), is expected to return to India later this year, while ‘Bharat’ is expected to go on floors in next couple of months. In that case, it will be interesting to see if she manages to work with Khan again.
