Parineeti Chopra is not working with Telegu star Mahesh Babu due to date issues, according to Director AR Murgadoss.
He clarified that Sridevi’s daughter Jhanvi was never approached for the film though the earlier reports said he has asked her but the actress who has shown an interest in a film career has said that ‘she does not feel film-ready and going to Los Angeles to study film making’.
“It is true that we approached Parineeti Chopra but the dates never worked out due to her Hindi film starting at the same time,” Murgadoss told a news agency.
On Jhanvi being approached, he said, “The reports that we met Jhanvi are false. Although, she was just suggested initially as one of the options.”
The “Ghajini” helmer revealed that work on the film is progressing well.
“It is a stylish action film with a new backdrop. I can’t divulge more as we are currently shooting, Santosh Shivan sir is also associated with the film and it is shaping up well,” he said. – CINEWS
