Yes, you heard it right. It seems Reema Kagti has finally pulled a casting coup. The film in question being Mr. Chalu and the film will have Priyanka Chopra and Fawad Khan playing lead roles.
Originally titled Mr. Chalu, Reema had announced the film with Saif Ali Khan and Kangana Ranaut initially but both the actors opted out of the film soon after. Mr Chalu was scheduled to go on floors this January but a disagreement over the remuneration lead to Saif opting out first. Kangana too followed suit as she gave her dates to Sujoy Ghosh’s The Devotion Of Suspect X which will coincidentally have Saif with her in the lead.
Now, Reema has finally roped in PeeCee and the Khoobsurat star Fawad to romance each other in the film. Priyanka had showed keen interest in working with the Pakistani heartthrob and the actress decided to immediately come on board after Reema narrated the script to her.
Priyanka has previously worked in Don and Don 2, both Excel Entertainment ventures and she is also playing the titular role in Farhan Aktar-Ritesh Sidhwani’s next production venture- Dil Dhadakne Do. The actress shares a great working relationship with both Farhan and Ritesh and instantly gave her nod to the film.
