Mumbai: Bollywood is rife with reports of major fallout between director Kunal Kohli and lively Priyanka Chopra.
Buzz has it that Priyanka, who is busy with seven films in her kitty, was apparently approached by Kunal Kohli for a film which he wanted to direct with a new ‘jodi’ – Saif Ali Khan and Priyanka Chopra. Yet, due to her busy schedule, Priyanka could not give her dates. But now the sassy lady has given her nod for a Sajid Nadiadwala film with Saif.
News has it that Kohli is miffed with the actress’ reaction as he was chasing Priyanka for quite some time now. Talking to a news daily, a source said, "Kunal has expressed his disappointment and anger to some industry professionals. We hear that Kunal`s words have also reached Priyanka`s ears and she was quite taken aback."
"Kunal isn`t ready to understand that Priyanka is neck deep into work. From finishing Vishal Bhardwaj`s ‘Saat Khoon Maaf’ to Farhan Akhtar`s ‘Don 2’, Abbas Mustan`s ‘Race 2’, ‘The Italian Job’ and several other film offers, Priyanka has no breathing space. Along with all this, she is also doing ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’ and many endorsements. Vishal wanted to cast her again but she is facing date issues with him too. Kunal has, however, taken it to heart," added the source.
Since Priyanka is busy shooting for ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’ in Brazil, when contacted Kunal Kohli, he downplayed the reports and said, "I haven`t approached her for any film. I`m doing a film with Saif. We haven`t locked the heroine yet, just finished the script. I`m told Priyanka`s doing Sajid Nadiadwala`s film with Saif. So, that`s why I haven`t approached her."
