Priyanka Chopra has returned to Mumbai after completing work on her next Hollywood film ‘Isn’t It Romantic?’.

The actress is said to be back to begin work on Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s much talked about next ‘Gustaakhiyaan’. Both the actress and the filmmaker are keen to finalise a leading man for the film, according to Mid-Day.

A source told the publication, “The leading man has to be finalised within this month.Though Bhansali is neck deep in work with Padmavati, he wants to start this film by mid 2018.” There were rumours of Irrfan and Abhishek Bachchan being part of the period drama but that didn’t materialise. The source said, ” The film’s pre-production has to be completed latest by March next year. So working backwards, the lead cast has to be decided before the pre-production begins.”

Chopra was last seen on screen with ‘Jai Gangaajal’ last year, which proved a box office dud.
