Priyanka Chopra, after signing Apoorva Lakhia’s remake of Zanjeer had been busy finishing her prior film commitments and her now popular debut music album. While other A-list actresses were busy vying for the big banner projects, Priyanka’s absence from the rat race set tongues wagging. But the actress managed to shut them all up. After the resounding success of Barfi! and her much appreciated performance in the film, she has now bagged a plum project. Priyanka has been signed on to play the female lead in Yash Raj Films’ next Gunday alongside Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor.
Incidentally, Katrina Kaif had also been sounded off for the role. “The lead female role is rather challenging and performance based. And the makers thought that Priyanka would fit the bill better,” a source told Mirror.
This will be Priyanka’s second film with YRF after Pyaar Impossible in 2010. Also, this will be her first film with Ranveer and Arjun.
