At a time when Priyanka Chopra was playing run-of-the-mill characters on the big screen, Aitraaz turned out to be a game changer for her. When many lead actresses shy away from playing a grey character on 70 mm, Priyanka pulled it off with elan. And 14 years after the success of Aitraaz, Ghai is ready with the script for a sequel, and is keen to rope in Priyanka as the leading lady.
According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, Ghai has been working on the script for the last two years, and it was only last month that he locked the final script.
A source told the daily, “It’s a new story with a new title. Subhash Ghai has already had a word with Priyanka Chopra and the two have discussed the film. She loves the idea of a sequel to a film which won her accolades for her performance in a negative role and is excited to feature in the second instalment of the franchise. She is keen to collaborate with Ghai again and has even told him that she will try working around her dates.”
The source added that a final meeting meeting between Ghai and Priyanka will happen in Mumbai once she’s back after wrapping up the third season of Quantico.
Priyanka, who has been busy with Hollywood projects, is looking for a great project to return to Bollywood, and Aitraaz sequel could turn out to be a good decision.
