Parineeti Chopra may have made not-so-good decisions in films and fashion in the past but not anymore. Since Meri Pyaari Bindu, the actress has been slaying the fashion circuits and is back at her game when it comes to films.
Turns out, Parineeti Chopra will now play Akshay Kumar’s wife in his next, Kesari which is based on the Battle of Saragarhi. Rumours are that Katrina Kaif was approached for the film but after things not working out with Kaif, Chopra was roped in and all for good.
A source close to the production revealed to a leading daily, “Parineeti plays a strong character and has really liked the script. The makers have started prep. Huge sets of the Saragarhi and Gulistan forts, as well as a village, will be erected in Wai, a town in Satara district.”
“The actors will be provided with a lot of material for their parts and will start full-time prep close to the shooting date. The film is set to tentatively go on the floors in January next year,” the source added.
As of now, Chopra is bust shooting for Dibaker Banerjee’s Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar opposite Arjun Kapoor while Akshay Kumar is busy with the post production of Robot 2.0
