Priyanka Chopra rejects Saif Ali Khan’s offer
We thought that B-town babes were stepping over each other’s toes to get that one sizzling hot number in a big budget film. But it looks like Priyanka Chopra is in a choosy mood right now. The actor has done a special appearance in an item song only once before and that was for her close friend Shahrukh Khan’s Billu. But recently when Saif Ali Khan’s production house Illuminati Film approached the actor for a promotional video for Sriram Raghavan’s Agent Vinod, she showed no interest at all. It seems that Dinesh Vijan, the co-owner of Illuminati, met up with Priyanka in London and offered her the item number, but she wasn’t keen to take up the offer. As far as we know she wouldn’t have possibly refused to do it because of date issues as it hadly takes any time to shoot a promotional video these days. The reason for this decision probably is that Priyanka is in no mood to promote Kareena’s films anymore, especially after doing a cameo for RA.One. Piggy Chops, who has in any case maintained that she doesn’t want to do item numbers anymore, seems to be making exceptions only for her friend SRK then. That’s not fair Priyanka!
