Priyanka back in Mumbai to finalise the leading man of ‘Gustakhiyan’?

Priyanka Chopra has been quite busy with her international commitments. The actress recently wrapped up the shooting of her film ‘Isn’t It Romantic?’ and is back in Mumbai. Though her next Bollywood film is not officially announced, reportedly Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Gustakhiyan’ will be her next Hindi movie. According to a report in Mid-day, on this trip to Mumbai, PeeCee will finalise the lead actor of the film.

A source told the tabloid, “The film’s leading man has to be finalised within this month. Though Bhansali is neck deep in work with ‘Padmavati’, he wants to start this film by mid-2018.”

“The film’s pre-production has to be completed latest by March next year. So working backwards, the lead cast has to be decided before the pre-production begins,” added the source. (Also Read: Priyanka Chopra’s pictures with Bryan Adams will make your day!)

Earlier, in an interview with Mid-day, Priyanka’s mother, Madhu Chopra had stated, “Everything about ‘Gustakhiyan’ is Sanjay sir’s call. Priyanka is happy to be guided entirely by his vision. She would’ve wanted to co-produce the movie but the discussion on that is yet to happen. This film goes completely with her sensibilities — it’s lyrical and romantic.”

While it is not officially announced who will play Sahir Ludhianvi in the film, a source close to the actor had given a confirmation to Pinkvilla that Abhishek has been roped in for the film.

The source had stated, “While everyone is thinking that he isn’t taking up projects because he is busy with his sports ventures, Abhishek plans to surprise all with his prep. He has been listening to Sahir’s songs and is also reading up a lot on him. At the same time, he is also sweating it out in the gym, because he has to lose weight for the movie.”

Another source had said, “The movie is expected to go on-floors soon and Sanjay Leela Bhansali along with the crew is figuring out the schedule.”

Well, we now just wait for an official announcement of the film.
