Priyanka Chopra mum on Kalpana Chawla film
Mumbai, July 1 (IANS) Actress Priyanka Chopra says she can’t take up shooting of another Hindi film till the shoot of the second season of “Quantico” gets over in March 2017. She also kept the suspense alive on whether she is doing the biopic on astronaut Kalpana Chawla.
“I can’t do a Hindi film till the season two finishes for ‘Quantico’, so I have the luxury of time… That is why I spent so much time in Mumbai because I have been meeting a lot of filmmakers. The problem is that I have only a certain chunk of time for next year.
“I’m at that point where I’m being greedy as there are some incredible films that are being made in Hindi films right now.”
Priyanka, who juggles life between India and abroad for her assignments, said she has been meeting “amazing filmmakers” and if she had it her way, she would say to all of them.
“I have the habit of doing at least four films a year, so suddenly I have been reduced to one or two. So, I feel it’s not fair. I’m taking my time to figure out which film, because I can’t start shooting before March (2017). So I’ll decide in the next few months,” Priyanka said at the Maxim magazine’s Hot 100 2016 event.
Priyanka, who was last seen on the big screen in the Hindi film “Jai Gangaajal”, recently completed the shooting of her Hollywood debut “Baywatch”.
There have been reports since late last year that Priyanka’s next Hindi film is likely to be on astronaut Kalpana Chawla.
When asked if she was doing the film, Priyanka didn’t deny it, and said: “I told you, I am deciding between a lot of very very interesting subjects and I have to pick one or two. I am listening to a lot of interesting films here and in the US.
“I’m just trying to see which ones I’ll be able to accommodate because I have very specific timelines.”
