Priyanka Chopra slammed for wearing Tri-color dupatta on Independence Day

Priyanka Chopra Sari

Like many other Bollywood stars, Priyanka too wished Happy Independence Day to her fans. A report in Midday suggests that the primary reason for her Mumbai trip is Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Gustakhiyan.

Looks like Priyanka Chopra is a favourite celebrity of social media haters as every now and then she becomes a soft target and gets slammed. She wrapped up her portions just few days back, and has time before she starts filming for season three of Quantico. "This film goes completely with her sensibilities - it's lyrical and romantic".

A source informed Mid-Day: "The film's leading man has to be finalised within this month".

The SLB and Priyanka project is reportedly titled as "Gustakhiyan" and Priyanka has taken time out to come back to the bay and look for a hero for the film as Bhansali is now busy with the shooting of "Padmavati".

This is why Kate Middleton is banned from signing autographs
Kate Middleton and other royals aren't allowed to sign autographs because someone could forge their signature . And the reason has nothing to do with being standoffish, but is all about security.

As of now, Bhansali is neck deep in work with "Padmavati" starring Deepika Paduknow, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor, based on the life of Rani Padmini but wants to start with the shoot for "Gustakhiya" by mid-2018. It is yet to be seen if Priyanka reacts to the issue. But nothing has been confirmed by the actors and the directors yet. "So working backwards, the lead cast has to be decided before the pre-production begins", a source was quoted by the tabloid.

Furthermore, the actress will also chalk out the promotional strategies for Pahuna, her Sikkimese production, which is slated for a world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival next month. There are rumours that Priyanka is co-producing this film with SLB, which is why she is taking active part in the casting.

We can't wait for an official announcement on this one.
