Priyanka Chopra's career took a turn for better with Aitraaz. Himesh Reshammiya, who had several hits under his belt, also consolidated his status with a strong musical score in Aitraaz. The two -- Priyanka and Himesh -- have been teamed in Aap Ka Surroor - The Moviee - The Real Luv Story... at least that's the buzz within the industry!
With Himesh Reshammiya crossing lanes and turning actor with Aap Ka Surroor - The Moviee - The Real Luv Story, the search for the right face to star opposite him gathered momentum at the launch of the film in London. Initially, there were whispers that Deepika Padukone might star opposite Himesh, since she had featured in his videos. Later, Himesh announced that a new face would be finalized, thereby putting an end to all speculation.
But, of late, there's talk that Priyanka Chopra has been approached for one of the pivotal roles in the film.
Prashant Chadha, who has directed Himesh's videos and is also directing Aap Ka Surroor - The Moviee - The Real Luv Story, denies the development. "Believe me, we haven't approached Priyanka at all. Not me, not my office, no one from our end... I've heard these rumors as well, but there's no truth to it," Prashant tells me.
So what's the truth? "The film stars three leading ladies and we're casting new faces for each of those characters. We're in the process of finalizing the names and a clearer picture will emerge in a few days from now," he states.
Meanwhile, Prashant has finalized four European destinations for filming a major chunk of the film -- Germany, Spain, Italy and France. "We commence [start-to-finish] shooting in the first week of February 2007. For the songs, we may opt for other locations," he adds.
