After the runaway success of her multi-starrer comic-caper ‘Golmaal Again’ (2017), Parineeti Chopra has become directors’ favourite once again. In the past few months, the gorgeous actress has signed a number of big-ticket projects, and the latest we hear that she has been approached for Ekta Kapoor’s forthcoming film ‘Shotgun Shaadi’.
For the uninitiated, ‘Shotgun Shaadi’ revolves around the ill-practice of groom abduction. Sidharth Malhotra has been confirmed to play the male lead in the movie. He essays the role of a thug in the movie, who abducts potential grooms and gets them forcefully married. Parineeti is being considered to play the female lead in the movie.
According to some sources, the script has been narrated to the actress who has signed the project on the dotted line. An official announcement will be made soon. Earlier, the same role was offered to Shraddha Kapoor who had, reportedly, requested the makers to make some changes in the script. Looks like her suggestions didn’t go down well with the makers and they opted for Parineeti.
If Parineeti comes onboard, ‘Shotgun Shaadi’ will be her second film with Sidharth Malhotra. They were first seen together in Vinil Mathew’s successful romantic comedy-drama ‘Hasee Toh Phasee’ (2014), produced by Dharma Productions and Phantom Films.
Talking about Chopra’s upcoming projects, the actress is currently working on Vipul Amrutlal Shah’s ‘Namaste England’. She also headlines Dibaker Banerjee’s upcoming directorial ‘Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar’. Both films star Arjun Kapoor as the male lead. She is also doing Karan Johar’s period film ‘Kesari’ which stars Akshay Kumar in the lead role.
