Two big announcements were made recently regarding Priyanka Chopra's filmography. One, that the actress walked out of Salman Khan starrer Bharat, which was to be her big return to Bollywood. Two, that she has waltzed into the Hollywood film, Cowboy Ninja Viking starring Chris Pratt as the hero. Well, the latest update is not a happy one for all the PeeCee fans across the globe. Turns out, Universal Studios, producers of Cowboy Ninja Viking have removed the film from the release calendar as per Collider.
Priyanka Chopra's Cowboy Ninja Viking won't be going on floors any time soon. Thus, it will be also missing its intended release in 2019. The only silver lining is that the movie is NOT shelved, but only delayed indefinitely. Reports further suggest that whenever the movie goes on floors, Priyanka will be the first choice to play the female lead.
As per The Hollywood Reporter, the rumours surrounding the shut down of this $65 million range project surfaced in March. We wonder why the movie was even announced. The movie was going to be directed by Michelle MacLaren. Dan Mazeau, Ryan Engle, Craig Mazin, Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese wrote the screenplay.
Priyanka will not be going back to Bharat for the fact that Katrina Kaif has already stepped into her shoes. As for her future projects, Priyanka has the Hindi movie, The Sky Is Pink, on floors. At the beginning of 2019, she will be seen in a small role in the Hollywood film, Isn't It Romantic. The movie is a comedy which centres on a girl who wakes up to realise her life is a comedy movie and she tries to avoid all the cliches of the genre.
The Sky is Pink is based on Aisha Chaudhary’s life, who became a motivational speaker after being diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis at the age of 13. Priyanka will play Aisha’s mother in the film. On the other hand, Zaira Wasim will essay the central character in this drama. Farhan Akhtar will be paired opposite former Miss World in this Shonali Bose’s venture.
