Parineeti Chopra, Priyanka Chopra’s cousin, who is making her debut with ‘Ladies v/s Ricky Bahl’, might replace Anushka Sharma in YRF next production venture.
It was earlier reported that Anushka Sharma would cast opposite Boney Kapoor’s son Arjun Kapoor in Habib Faisal's next. But it’s actually Parineeti who might walk off with the role.
"YRF has decided that Parineeti is apt for the role. Habib Faisal is also very keen to work with Parineeti. Ditto for Aditya Chopra, who always takes most of the final decisions in YRF. An official announcement will be made in this regard very soon,” said a source to Daily Mirror.
Parineeti is yet another YRF finds, as she was working in the marketing section of YRF Films before she was discovered as actress material.
“Parineeti is doing an excellent job in Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl. She has good acting abilities. She fits the role in Habib's film perfectly," added the source.
When contacted YRF spokesperson, he dint confirm Parineeti as the heroine but he did confirm that Anushka wasn’t a part of the movie.
"Anushka was never an option as the role needs a new girl. No final decision has been taken yet. We shall make an announcement as soon as we finalize the cast,” he said.
