The actress is likely to pair up with the nawab in a musical to be directed by Sameer Sharma
Parineeti Chopra, who has been going through a lean phase following two successive boxoffice debacles, Daawat-e-Ishq and Kill Dil, finally has something to smile about in 2015.
The actress, who has repeatedly admitted that she has a “crazy crush”on Saif Ali Khan, could be romancing the dapper nawab in an upcoming musical, Jugalbandi.
A source close to the actress revealed that she has been given a narration by Sameer Sharma, the director of 2012 romcom, Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana, and has responded positively to the script. “Saif is plays a music agent in the film and Parineeti was recently approached to play his love interest. The duo has not acted in the past and that is precisely why the makers want to cast them.
They will make a refreshingly gorgeous jodi onscreen,” said a source close to the development, adding, “The film is likely to go on floors later this year.”
Interestingly, Saif’s business partner, producer Dinesh Vijan’s directorial debut had been announced with Saif and Parineeti last year, but the romantic drama was put on hold and went back to the scripting stage after the makers realised that the film had drastic similarities with another of Saif’s production, Aarif Ali’s directorial debut, Lekar hum Deewana Dil, which failed at the box office.
About Parineet being roped in to romance Saif in Jugalbandi, her spokesperson told Mirror, “At the moment, we can’t comment on this. An announcement will be made once things are finalised.”
