Parineeti Chopra’s name was initially in discussion to play lead in S.S Rajamoulli’s magnum opus RRR, which stars Ram Charan and NTR Jr. The role finally went to Alia Bhatt. The second lead in the film was to be played by Hollywood actress Daisy Edgar Jones. But she left the film recently. So once again Parineeti is being considered for this role.
A source says,” Rajamoulli officially announced through Twitter that Daisy has opted out of the film for some personal reasons. Now, the team is looking for Indian actress to essay this role,as the film will release in different Indian languages. They also feel that getting dates of international actress at last moment will be an issue as they plan to start shoot in next few weeks. They have been discussing names of some actresses and Parineeti is one of them.”
Earlier, when Parineeti was asked about being offered this role, she did not deny it. However, it was reported that Parineeti had asked for fat fees and therefore she was not selected for the role. But there is no confirmation on it.
Parineeti has just finished Jabariya Jodi with Sidharth Malhotra. She is preparing for Saina Nehwal’s biopic and will be seen in Ajay Devgn’s Bhuj as well.(
