The Mumbai movie fraternity might have slammed actress Priyanka Chopra left right and center for her alleged affair with co-actor Shah Rukh Khan, but the actor himself haven't shut the door on her.
According to reports it might just be good New Year for the actress as Shah Rukh is keen on working with her in his next 'Happy New Year'.
It is known that director Farah Khan has decided on casting SRK for the movie but they couldn't come to a conclusion about the leading lady.
Reports suggest Shah Rukh Khan, strictly from professional point of view, wants to be seen with her again.
Priyanka has done a commendable job in her last movie 'Barfi' which was also India's nomination for Oscars in the best foreign language movie category.
The chemistry between Priyanka and Shah Rukh is extremely visible on screen and off, irrespective of their so called friendship.
The two have openly proclaimed their fondness for each other. Priyanka confessed in a chat show hosted by SRK's friend and director Karan Johar how she has a huge crush on SRK.
But let’s not talk about the Praiyanka-SRK-Gauri-Karan episode anymore, which has been reported to death.
However, 'Happy New Year' is one film that’s going to get everyone talking if Priyanka comes on-board. Director Farah is tight lipped but one thing for sure - her heroine.
There were several names floating with the likes of Deepika Padukone, Sonakshi Sinha, Katrina Kaif, Kareena Kapoor also Parineeti Chopra.
But Farah has nothing to add to the confusion. It seems Shah Rukh is calling all the shots and taking all major decisions of the film.
When Farah was asked about the leading lady she only said that Shah Rukh wants a proper announcement when the entire star cast is onboard.
Reportedly a spate of hectic planning and strategising is going on to include Priyanka.
With good friend Shah Rukh's backing Priyanka might edge out every one else in the race.
Deepika is already working with SRK in 'Chennai Express', Kareena has 'Satyagraha' and isn't keen on signing any new film.
Priyanka is currently shooting 'Zanjeer' and has 'Gunday' to complete. The actress will also play the protagonist in a biopic of Indian boxer Mary Kom.
With all the projects in her kitty it is now up to Priyanka to make space for 'Happy New Year'.
Depending on how badly she wants to work with Shah Rukh, Priyanka will have re-work her complete schedules.
