Prachi Desai’s date issues proved to be lucky for the young actor who has bagged a role in the third installment of the horror film, 1920
It seems Priyanka Chopra has got a whole gang of hot cousins behind her. After Parineeti Chopra, there’s another super cute cousin of her, Meera Chopra, who will be making her Bollywood debut soon in Vikram Bhatt’s third installment of the horror franchise, 1920.
Apparently, it was Prachi Desai of Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai fame who was supposed to play the female lead in the film. However, shooting for Sanjay Dutt’s Policegiri kept her busy, and with Sanjay’s imprisonment inching closer, Prachi had to work double as hard and couldn’t allot the required dates to Vikram Bhatt.
Left with no choice, Vikram decided to approach Meera Chopra for the role as he was taken in by her beauty and her filmy background. “I had met Meera for another film. Third of the Chopra sisters, she is ravishing and obviously comes with what we call a film background. She is quite a dynamo and we are all glad with her now joining the cast,” said the director. And while we are at the subject of backgrounds, we hope Vikram is aware that Meera is already a sort of femme fatale. In 2011, she was in the news after the police questioned her in the mysterious death of Delhi based businessman Sumit Bhuttan’s wife. It seems Meera was having an affair with Sumit, and their relationship was the reason why the businessman had regular tiffs with his wife, who was found hanging at their Gurgaon apartment.
Well, we hope this won’t affect Meera’s Bollywood prospects considering the case is behind her and she has already done a handful of Tamil and Telugu films. So worry not, as we will definitely keep you posted on what all Meera gets up to in Bollywood. Her movie goes on floors next month, so keep watching this space for more on her!
