Priyanka in, Aishwarya outCulture Desk
Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s search for a dancing diva has finally ended with Priyanka Chopra, reports The Times of India. But what about Bhansali’s blue-eyed girl Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who was reportedly in advanced talks to dance her way to a comeback with ‘Ram Leela’.
With the Bachchan bahu confirming a meeting with the director, a bigger collaboration seems to be in the offing. ‘We did meet. Please wait for an official announcement which will be made soon,’ said Aishwarya. Meanwhile Bhansali is busy preparing for the elaborate number which will see Priyanka matching steps with the film’s lead actor Ranveer Singh.
The shooting will take place next week in Film City and Anju Modi, who designed the outfits of the film’s leading lady Deepika Padukone, has already fashioned costumes for Priyanka. A source close to Priyanka told TOI, ‘Bhansali met Priyanka two months ago to discuss the song in detail. Priyanka loved the idea but dates were a concern as she is also shooting for Gunday and Mary Kom simultaneously.’
Speaking about Aishwarya’s involvement in the scheme of things, the source added, ‘Bhansali likes to meet a lot of people before he finalises anyone. But it looks like he has something bigger planned for Aishwarya, may be a different film altogether.’
