The film will be produced by Sidharth Roy Kapur and Mahesh Mathai and there were reports that Priyanka was also approached for the same film, reacting to reports, Priyanka said, “Yes.. it was one of those scripts. I was approached for that film when Aamir was doing it but we weren’t supposed to do it next year but for 2019 but I don’t know. Now Aamir is not doing that film as well. I haven’t received any conformations. I haven’t spoken to Sid (Sidharth Roy Kapur) or Mahesh (Mathai) sir. As soon as I know then it will be pretty clear”
Talking about her marriage plans, Priyanka said, “Marriage doesn’t happen as per plans. You just have to find right guy for yourself. If I find a right guy then I will do it but still I haven’t found that right guy to marry”
Priyanka Chopra has earlier worked with Sanjay Leela Bhansali in ‘Bajirao Mastani’, talking about controversy surrounding release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati’, Priyanka said, “I have an incredible relationship with Sanjay (Sanjay Leela Bhansali) sir and I admire him tremendously. I know that this film will come out and I know people will see intension behind it. They just have to make sure everything is sorted and I will always stand by not just Sanjay sir but for Deepika, Ranveer and Shahid for the film.”
There were reports that Zee Cine Awards managed to crack a deal with Quantico actress. Priyanka Chopra was signed for performing at the awards event on December, and for her 5-minute act, she will be getting mind-blowing amount of Rs 4-5 crore, refuting those rumors, Priyanka said, “guys you also know the remunerations and what all you do the numbers so keep quite please. I never talk about remunerations and my act is of 12 minutes, first of all you that news is incorrect that I am doing a 6 minute act. I was thinking what I should do different so, this time around I am coming to perform on stage from 700 feet above and I will be performing on my career’s favorite songs”
Reacting to Harvey Weinstein casting couch scandal in Hollywood, Priyanka said, “I think it’s amazing. It just amazing that not just men and women but people are standing up against powerful men who think they can run away with anything and it’s not very easy. It is extremely difficult and I guess, in America, they had the courage and support from everyone to be able to do it so it’s really wonderful to see”
Adding her viewpoint about sexual harassments in India at workplace, Priyanka said, “I don’t think it’s an industry thing and I don’t think it’s an India thing. I just don’t think we have come together yet to be able to do that in such a big way”
Meanwhile, Priyanka shall soon wrap up the shoot of her American TV series Quantico 3. She also made her Hollywood debut alongside Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron in Baywatch.
