After going for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Ram Leela (and all but being finalized when, ironically another actress Deepika Padukone stepped in to put in her name among the hopefuls) Priyanka is now eyeing another Kareena Kapoor role.
We’re talking about Prakash Jha’s ‘Satyagraha’ for which, as reported earlier this week Kareena has been finalized to star opposite Ajay Devgn. But now we hear of Priyanka Chopra being keenly interested in Sataygrah, to the point of tempting Jha to re-consider.
A source very close to Jha whispers, “Prakash has zeroed in on Kareena. But last week he received a message from Priyanka saying she was interested in doing ‘Satyagraha’. Prakash didn’t take that seriously. But a few days ago Priyanka’s secretary Chand Mishra met Prakash and urged him to hold on with the final decision until she returns from the US in September after recording her music album.
We hear Prakash has committed himself to Kareena in ‘Satyagraha’. But he is now leaving the door open to Priyanka whom he came ‘this’ close to working with in Raajneeti .
When confronted with the story that Priyanka wants to take over ‘Satyagraha’ Prakash was taken aback.
After a moment’s pause he shot back, “Who told you this? I am not saying anything.”
But the silence says it all. And Kareena better act fast , if she doesn’t want another Ram Leela happening to her.
