Filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj has confirmed that he is in talks with actor Priyanka Chopra for a film which might go on floors sometime next year. Earlier, the director had expressed his desire to work with Priyanka on a project. It was reported that he would do a film based on Twelfth Night with the Quantico star. When asked about it, Vishal told the reporters, "Priyanka also wants to work with me. And we are working with each other. Hopefully, we will start the film next year."
The duo previously collaborated on 7 Khoon Maaf, which was an adaptation of the short story "Susanna's Seven Husbands" by Ruskin Bond, and Kaminey.
The director is currently ready with his next project, Pataakha, a comedy-drama about two sisters, Badki and Chhutki and it is based on an acclaimed short story by renowned writer Charan Singh Pathik. Featuring Sanya Malhotra, Radhika Madan, Sunil Grover and Vijay Raaz, Pataakha is set to release on September 28.
Vishal, however, was supposed to begin a film with Irrfan earlier this year before the actor had to head to London for his treatment. The director ultimately put the film on hold.
When asked about it, he said, "I don't know about the film's status. I can tell you my heart's status and it is that we all are praying for him. Obviously I'm missing him as a friend but also as an audience. I want to see him on screen again, whether it's my film or someone else's."
Coming back to Priyanka Chopra, the actress is all over the news, owing to her engagement & roka ceremony with Nick Jonas. On the work front, she will be next seen in 'The Sky Is Pink'. The film also casts Farhan Akhtar and Zaira Wasim in the lead roles. The duo (Priyanka & Farhan) was last seen together in Dil Dhadakne Do.
