The Ekta Kapoor-produced film, Milan Talkies, is back in news again. First we had reported that Shahid Kapoor is expected to replace actor Imran Khan for the lead. Now, we hear that Priyanka Chopra, who was reportedly approached to play the leading lady in the fim, has walked out of the Tigmanshu Dhulia film.
The reason: Differences with Shahid Kapoor, who’s her rumoured ex-boyfriend. PeeCee and Shahid were known to be dating in 2009, during the making of Kaminey. When asked if news of Priyanka walking out of the film was true, Shahid said, “I don’t know. As far as I’ve been told, nobody has been cast right now. I have no idea about what the earlier status on the film was.”
Meanwhile, Sasha says that he’s excited about working with Dhulia, though he still hasn’t signed on the dotted lines. “It (Milan Talkies) has been offered to me, but I haven’t signed it yet. I am yet to hear the script. I need to hear it first and only then will I decide,” he says, adding, “I like Tigmanshu a lot as a director. I think he’s superb. I saw Paan Singh Tomar (2010) last year and it is one of my favourite films,” The film is expected to go on the floors by October.
