The latest we hear is that Priyanka has helped out director Anurag Basu, who is in a new low following the debacle of Kites. She is said to have voluntarily taken up the smaller role in his upcoming film Silence, which is a biopic of Kishore Kumar.
Silence was supposed to have Ranbir Kapoor as a deaf and mute hero and Priyanka as a mentally challenged girl. However, there was no taker for the role of the other heroine after Asin Thottumkal and Katrina Kaif opted out. It is at this critical juncture that Priyanka stepped in and volunteered to do the weaker role, thus making Anurag's casting much easier.
