With reports of a sequel to the 2008 super hit comic-caper ‘Dostana’ doing the rounds once again, fans are curious to know the new star cast of the film. While there have been innumerable reports that the makers are planning to rope in a completely fresh cast by replacing Abhishek Bachchan, John Abraham and Priyanka Chopra, the latest buzz in tinsel town is that Chopra might be retained to reprise her role in ‘Dostana 2’. A popular daily reports the same, stating that since the former choice for ‘Dostana 2’ Katrina Kaif has no free dates available for a new project, the makers have gone back to Desi Girl, Priyanka Chopra.
A source told the publication, “‘Dostana 2’ was announced 10 years ago, and Katrina was roped in at that time. Now that the film is actually being made, Katrina’s dates are no longer available, because she has committed them to Salman Khan’s Bharat. So now the project has gone back to Priyanka.”
Priyanka Chopra, who has not been seen in any Hindi film for last two years after her cop-drama ‘Jai Gangaajal’ (2016), is currently shooting for the Siddharth Roy Kapoor and Ronnie Screwvala produced movie ‘The Sky Is Pink’. Directed by Shonali Bose, the real-life inspired film also stars Farhan Akhtar and Zaira Wasim in prominent roles. She was also a part of Salman Khan’s mega-budgeted ‘Bharat’, but the actress opted out of it to star in the Hollywood biggie, ‘Cowboy Ninja Viking’. Unfortunately, that project has been put on the backburner for a while.
Besides her professional life, PC is also in news for her rumoured engagement with American pop singer Nick Jonas. The duo is expected to tie the nuptial knot in coming few months.
