Apparently, Kumar has mentioned to producer Zeeshan Qadri that he is keen on casting Chopra for the role which would then see him reunite with her after award-winning ‘Mary Kom’ (2014). A source said to Hindustan Times, “The makers have a couple of names in mind for the pivotal role, but now, they are trying their best to bring Priyanka on board”.
Qadri also commented, “It�۪s up to Omung to decide whom he is comfortable working with. He suggested Priyanka�۪s name, among others, and we have talked to her too”.
Chopra also spoke about being approached, “Omung spoke to me about that (the film), but I will decide next year what I will be working on”.
