Kareena – Priyanka in race for Kjo’s next
Actresses vying for a meaty role in a big banner film always make a great piece of news and hence this one is no different. While there is a buzz that actress Priyanka Chopra might replace her arch rival Kareena Kapoor in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next venture from which the latter chose to walk out from, the two might yet again lock horns for Kjo’s next. Filmmaker Karan Johar has acquired the film rights for the novel ‘Immortals of Meluha’ and the spot to play the leads – Shiva and Sati – are open to be taken. While they say that the actor with Greek god looks Hrithik Roshan might play ‘Shiva’, there is still a huge hullabaloo over the actress who will bag the role of ‘Sati’. While earlier names like Vidya Balan and Katrina Kaif have floated for the film, we now hear that Kareena and Priyanka are strong contenders to bag the meaty role.
While Kareena is a Karan Johar favorite, Priyanka has delivered two hits with Karan in the name of ‘Dostana’ and ‘Agneepath’ hence her strong stance cannot be ruled out. It remains to be seen who finally bags the opportunity to be the on-screen goddess.
