What is more important to Parineeti Chopra than a film opposite Amitabh Bachchan?

The Hasee Toh Phasee actor has walked out of a film with Big B

Parineeti Chopra has turned down an opportunity to work with Bollywood’s Shahenshah Amitabh Bachchan in Shoojit Sircar’s Piku.This Chopra babe has another big film that takes priority over a father-daughter film with Sr Bachchan. Many Bollywood heroines would give an arm and leg to bag a role like this, but not Parineeti. Yash Raj Film’s favourite rising star has gone ahead to give a nod to another mega project and she had no qualms admitting that a bigger film takes precedence over Big B for her, “Who wouldn’t want be cast with Mr Bachchan? But unfortunately my dates for Shoojit’s film are clashing with another very big film to which I’ve already said yes. So I’ve to let go of this chance of working with Mr Bachchan. But I am sure I’ll have another chance soon. Neither of is going away anywhere in the near future.”

Shoojit Sircar had managed a casting coup of sorts having roped in Irrfan Khan, Amitabh Bachchan and Parineeti in the lead roles for Piku, however with Pari having walked out of his pet project in the nth moment the director is now left in a lurch looking for a new leading lady. However, the cool as cucumber filmmaker is unperturbed, “Piku is a character-driven father-daughter story. That’s the film I am directing next before I go on to my football film 1911 with John Abraham. My writer Juhi Trivedi who wrote Vicky Donor with me, has written Piku. There are essentially three characters in the film of the father, daughter and another man played by Irrfan. I’ve Bachchan saab’s dates and very frankly, all the other actors’ dates would have to fall in line with Bachchan Saab’s schedule.”

Who do you think will be the perfect choice to play Piku now that Parineeti is out – Anushka Sharma, Shraddha Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra or then Katrina Kaif?
