Priyanka Chopra's cousin Parineeti Chopra, who is featured in Ladies v/s Ricky Bahl is apparently the new blue-eyed girl of Yash Raj Films. Parineeti has reportedly replaced Anushka Sharma in Habib Faisal's next. Parineeti will be cast opposite Boney Kapoor's son Arjun Kapoor in the film.
While it was earlier reported that Anushka Sharma would play the female lead in the film, Aditya Chopra, who mostly takes the final call in YRF is of the impression that Parineeti Chopra fits the role perfectly. The official announcement will be made soon.
For all those who do not know....Before being featured in Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl, Parineeti Chopra used to work in the marketing section of Yash Raj Films. However, Aditya Chopra who spotted her acting abilities thought that she was the 'actress material'.
When a leading newspaper quizzed YRF, they denied that Anushka was ever considered for the role. The spokesperson said that the role in Habib's film needed a fresh face and they are yet to announce their decision.
