‘Piku’ (2015)��starring Amitabh Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, and Irrfan Khan has opened to rave reviews and good audience acceptance. Bachchan and Padukone��play a father-daughter duo in the film, and Padukone the title role��of ‘Piku,’ but��it was not Padukone, but Parineeti Chopra who was the initial choice to play Piku, BizAsia has learnt.

Movie Talkies reports��says that Chopra was first approached to play Piku, but she had already signed Yash RajFilms’ ‘Daawat-e-Ishq’ (2014) and both films��had similar themes. ‘Daawat-e-Ishq’ didn’t perform as well as it was thought to.

Chopra’s last release was another YRF production, ‘Kill Dil’ (2014) which��also didn’t create much buzz, despite��the star cast of Chopra, Ranveer Singh and Govinda. Chopra is currently on a hiatus, as mentor Aditya Chopra has reportedly��asked her to take step back, and analyse her career choices.
