Reports in Indian media suggest that the actress doesn’t want to be seen as Sallu’s fan. Really now!
Anurag Kashyap’s short film is as part of a feature film to be co-directed by three other directors to commemorate the 100 years of Indian cinema.
Apparently, the script that was narrated to Priyanka needed her to play a huge fan of Salman Khan. According to reports, although Priyanka was initially excited about the part, she refused to go ahead with it because of her closeness to Shah Rukh Khan.
Who does not know about the trouble between Salman and SRK; Priyanka might have thought that playing a role of a Salman fan will not go down well with her close friends.
Priyanka surely knows how to play it safe.
Anurag thus shelved the short film and moved on to make it with Amitabh Bachchan in the lead.
The story will feature a fan who comes from Allahabad to Mumbai in search of his favourite superstar.
