Priyanka Chopra denies doing Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Mary Kom biopic

Jungli billi PeeCee is amused by speculation about her working with the Guzaarish director

With Anurag Basu’s Barfi! Priyanka Chopra established herself as an actor who can deliver the goods when presented with a role challenging enough. Filmmakers have started approaching her with characters that are not the typical Bollywood fare. That is why we weren’t especially surprised when we heard that Priyanka has been approached by Sanjay Leela Bhansali to essay the character of MC Mary Kom in the biopic that he is producing.

But, no, PeeCee clarified her position on Twitter, she is not in the running for the project. She tweeted, “I’ve never had any discussions for the part of Mary Kom..As much as it wud be a great part for any actress to play its speculation for now.” Wethinks it would be great if eventually she does the film, because it would be her second woman-oriented movie after Vishal Bhardwaj’s 7 Khoon Maaf. Also, she hasn’t worked with Bhansali before; the new combination just might create magic on celluloid.

And you may remember that denial before acceptance is always the game in Bollywood – and Priyanka is the master of the khel!
