Priyanka Chopra, who is now a well known global superstar, took up a negative role in film ‘Aitraaz’ early in her career that won her a Filmfare for Best Performance in a Negative Role.
Fourteen years after Subhash Ghai produced the Abbas-Mustan directed thriller, the filmmaker is keen on revamping the franchise with ‘fresh title and story’ and he wants Priyanka to play the lead again.
Sources says, “Filmmaker Subhash Ghai has been working on the script for the last two years but the final draft was locked only last month. The directror wants to final the cast and hopes to put the project on floors by the end of 2018.”
Subhash Ghai has already had a word with Priyanka Chopra and the two have discussed the film.
“She loves the idea of a sequel to a film which won her accolades for her performance in a negative role and is excited to feature in the second instalment of the franchise. She is keen to collaborate with Ghai again and has even told him that she will try working around her dates,” added by source.
The 2004 original featured Priyanka Chopra as Sonia Roy.
Currently, Priyanka is busy promoting her next Hollywood movie ‘A Kid Like Jake’.–CINEWS
