There’s an ongoing rustle of a tussle to the finishing line between Priyanka Chopra and Kangana Ranaut to bag the coveted lead in South Indian director Murugadoss’s remake of his Tamil hit Gajini. it has been left up to Aamir Khan to decide who he wants to work with.
While Ayesha Takia has been finalised to play one of the leads in this adventure-drama about a hero’s amnesiac quest for love, the other leading lady’s part is open to both the ladies!
Kangana Ranaut has shown a keen interest in the project. And the film’s producers are more than happy to have her aboard.
Priyanka, on the other hand is also looking for a meaty new project and has shown an equally keen interest in being cast with Aamir.
At this stage in their careers both the actresses would hanker for a role with Aamir for different reasons. Kangana could move up from Emran Hashmi and Shiney to the Khan bracket. As for Priyanka, she has already starred opposite Shah Rukh and Salman. A film with Aamir would complete the picture.”
The latest on the Gajini front is that the director, completely oblivious to the ways of Bollywood, has left the decision on the second heroine to cinematographer Ravi Chandran who apparently has asked Aamir to take a call.
“Aamir hasn’t seen Kangana’s work. He’ll be watching Gangster on a DVD this week. And make up his mind,” says the source.
