It seems the magic of new starlet and Yash Raj Films find, Parineeti Chopra, is making everyone weak at the feet. How else would you describe Chopra’s acquiring of a role in Punit Malhotra’s next venture? Malhotra is rumoured to be dating Sonam Kapoor and the fact that Kapoor hasn’t landed the role has come as a surprise.
As reported by Times of India, a source close to YRF revealed, “Sonam has fewer projects in hand right now. So everybody thought she would be the female lead. When Punit decided on Parineeti, it came as a surprise”. Malhotra has kept on Imran Khan as per his debut directorial ‘I Hate Luv Storys’ (2010) for the project.
It seems Chopra’s character in the movie will be of the kind the audience has seen her in in the two films she currently has to her credit.
