Parineeti Chopra chooses Sushant over Akshay

Due to an exclusive contract with Yash Raj Films, Parineeti Chopra has had to reject a film with Akshay Kumar, instead working with Sushant Singh Rajput.

According to the old grapevine, Chopra who made her debut in ‘Ladies v/s Ricky Bahl’ (2011) and then later starred in another Yash Raj Film ‘Ishaqzaade’ (2012), cannot work outside the production banner until her contract is over. She is now working with director Maneesh Sharma opposite Sushant Singh Rajput.

For this reason, A. Murugadoss who wanted to have the actress for the Hindi remake of Tamil blockbuster ‘Thuppakki’ with Kumar has had to change his leading lady to Sonakshi Sinha.

Confirming this, director A. Murugadoss said, “We tried really hard for Parineeti. But she was committed by contract to a project with Yash Raj Films.”
