Ekta Kapoor ends all the confusion surrounding the casting of her upcoming film. It’s not Sonakshi or Parineeti but Pee Cee who will be playing the lead
There was quite a bit of confusion over who would play the female lead in Ekta Kapoor’s forthcoming production Milan Talkies. The small town love story, which will be directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia of Paan Singh Tomar fame, has been in the news over the casting of its leading lady. Initially, it was reported that Sonakshi Sinha could play the role of a girl from a small town since it was similar to her character in Dabangg. Later, rumours were abuzz that Priyanka Chopra would be playing the lead role.
However, when Imran Khan pushed his dates from March to August, speculations were rife that Priyanka would not be able to do the film, and her cousin Parineeti Chopra would play the lead instead. There was so much confusion about the project that Priyanka herself came out and tweeted that she was doing the film despite her hectic schedule, but later she deleted the tweet.
And now the film’s producer has finally released a statement confirming Pee Cee for the role. “I can confirm that Milan Talkies will go into production in August and there is no doubt that Priyanka will feature opposite Imran,” said an irate Ekta Kapoor. So finally, we wait for the film to take off with Piggy Chops and Imran on board.
