Priyanka Chopra quitting Salman Khan's Bharat gave rise to a lot of controversies as Salman was seen mocking PeeCee during the film's promotions. Reportedly, it was due to her wedding with Nick Jonas, the actress had to opt out from the project. But if the recent reports are to be believed, PeeCee doesn't want to be a part of the Bollywood project just because it has a big hero or big director's name.
As reported by Deccan Chronicle, a director friend of Priyanka was quoted saying, "Priyanka can’t take any Bollywood assignment just because it has a big hero’s or a big director’s name attached to it. Her role has to say something. She’s being watched very closely by fans across the world."
This is why she chose to do a relatively small film like The Sky Is Pink, rather than a massive production like Bharat with Salman Khan.
Talking about her Bollywood plans a source close to Deccan Chronicle revealed that Priyanka is in talks with several filmmakers in Bollywood for possible projects. He said, "She is in negotiations with several prominent filmmakers, including Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Siddharth Roy Kapur, Aditya Chopra, Karan Johar and Vishal Bhardawaj. She has no intentions of giving up her career in Hindi cinema."
Sources further say that there's a strong possibility of Priyanka starring in her next production. Meanwhile, on the work front, the actress will make her Bollywood comeback with the Shonali Bose's directorial The Sky Is Pink which also stars Farhan Akhtar and Zaira Wasim. Also, Priyanka is currently working on a biopic on Ma Anand Sheela, who partnered with spiritual guru Acharya Rajneesh. The film will be directed by Barry Levinson.
