Parineeti Chopra bags role opposite Salman Khan in YRF’s ‘Sultan’?
After news of Kangna Ranaut rejecting Yash Raj Films’ offer to star opposite Salman Khan in ‘Sultan’, rumour now has it that Parineeti Chopra has stepped into the role.
“Pari�۪s always been a YRF favourite; the choice was not surprising. ��Aditya (Chopra) was angry with Kangna for talking about the film. ��He immediately called her (Parineeti) up and got her on board. ��Obviously, Pari won�۪t say no to her mentor,” a source revealed to��DNA India.
As already reported by��BizAsia, the lead female role��in ‘Sultan’ is also of a wrestler. ��While Salman Khan’s heroines are often restricted to romance and songs, Sultan’s leading lady will have a lot more action, which would also explain Parineeti Chopra’s recent focus on fitness.
Set to be directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, the film is slated for an Eid 2016 release.
