There is no dearth of Tamil actresses in Bollywood but filmmaker
Vishal Bhardwaj and actor Shahrukh Khan have reportedly pinned down
on Priyanka Chopra to play the role of a Tamilian in the adaptation
of Chetan Bhagat's 2 States. They are convinced that she could pull
off the role of a south Indian girl well.
It was earlier reported that Shahrukh had put 2 States on hold,
as he thought only a new face could fit into the role and that
Priyanka is too familiar to the film lovers. However, he seems to
have a change of heart, convincing both producer Sajid Nadiadwala
and director Vishal that the actress could pull off the character
well. He has even reportedly told the actress to sign the film.
Well, it will be interesting to see a Punjabi girl playing the
role of a South Indian girl. 2 States is expected to take off by
the end of next year (2012).
