Celebrated filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj and India’s international star Priyanka Chopra will join forces once again for a new movie which will start rolling in 2019. The news has been confirmed by none other than Bhardwaj himself. The duo has previously worked on two critically and commercially successful films such as ‘Kaminey’ (2009) and ‘7 Khoon Maaf’ (2011). With the confirmation of them coming together once again, we are sure their fans will be rejoicing the news.
Vishal Bhardwaj was asked about the project with Priyanka Chopra at the song launch of his forthcoming film ‘Pataakha’. He confirmed reteaming with the popular actress and said, “I want to work with Priyanka. She wants to work with me, too. We are working on the script. Hopefully, next year it will go on floors.”
A couple of weeks ago, reports were doing the rounds that Bhardwaj is keen to join hands with Priyanka Chopra for a film based on Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. The filmmaker had also confirmed the same. Some insiders also revealed that Vishal and Priyanka have already met three-four times to discuss the script. However, things are at a very nascent stage and will take some time before everything is locked officially. We are hopeful that the director will announce the title and the final cast of the film soon.
Coming back to Vishal Bhardwaj’s forthcoming film ‘Pataakha’, the movie is a comedy-drama which revolves around two sisters who are constantly at loggerheads. The film stars ‘Dangal’ (2016) fame Sanya Malhotra and television actress Radhika Madan as two warring sisters. Ace comedian Sunil Grover also plays a significant part in the film. ‘Pataakha’ is scheduled to enter cinemas on 2nd October 2018.
