On the work front, Priyanka will be seen alongside Salman Khanin the film Bharat. Salman Khan’s decision to team up with PeeCee has raised eyebrows. The two had a fallout during Mujhse Shaadi Karogi (2004). Later, PeeCee refused to work in Sohail Khan’s production Main Aur Mrs Khanna (2009). In 2011, Sohail had excluded her from his guest list for a party hosted by him during an awards gala. As they say, there are no permanent enemies or friends in Bollywood.

On joining the Bharat family, Priyanka Chopra shares, “Bharat it is! I’m looking forward to begin shooting this film and working with Salman Khan and Ali again after a considerable time. I’ve learnt a lot from them in our previous collaborations and am excited to see what this one has to offer. I’m also looking forward to working with Alvira and Atul and the entire team of Bharat. To all my well-wishers who’ve been so patient and supportive… thank you for your constant support and I’ll see you all at the movies!”

Director Ali Abbas Zafar says, “Bharat is Priyanka’s homecoming to Bollywood after having proven her range as a performer in Hollywood films and a blockbuster global TV show. Bharat is rooted in India and its culture despite it spanning over 70 years and set across various countries of the world. Priyanka is the biggest Indian artist internationally and she is a perfect fit for the film. Priyanka brings in outstanding acting as well as incredible international appeal to make the scale of the film bigger and even more global.”

Ali Abbas Zafar and producer, Atul Agnihotri travelled to New York to meet Priyanka and gave her the narration of the film. Priyanka loved Ali’s script and she was convinced immediately to do the film. Salman and Priyanka will be teaming up after 10 years making the association all the more special. Atul Agnihotri who is collaborating with Priyanka for the first time shares, “We are all very happy to welcome Priyanka to the Bharat family. We couldn’t have asked for anyone better than her to play this role.”

Dwayne Johnson who is loved by millions across the globe got the most amazing gift of his life. Welcoming his second child with his wife Lauran Hashian, ‘The Rock’ proudly showed the world his new baby girl- Tiana Gia Johnson.

Taking to his Instagram, Dwayne shared the emotional news along with a heart-warming picture of him with Tiana and wrote, “Tiana Gia Johnson came into this world like a force of nature and Mama @laurenhashianofficial labored and delivered like a true rockstar.”

Skin to skin. Our mana. Blessed and proud to bring another strong girl into this world. Tiana Gia Johnson came into this world like a force of nature and Mama @laurenhashianofficial labored and delivered like a true rockstar. I was raised and surrounded by strong, loving women all my life, but after participating in baby Tia’s delivery, it’s hard to express the new level of love, respect and admiration I have for @laurenhashianofficial and all mamas and women out there. Word to the wise gentlemen, it’s critical to be by your lady’s head when she’s delivering, being as supportive as you can.. holding hands, holding legs, whatever you can do. But, if you really want to understand the single most powerful and primal moment life will ever offer – watch your child being born. Its a life changer and the respect and admiration you have for a woman, will forever be boundless. And to my third and youngest daughter, Tiana Gia – like I did when your two older sisters Simone Alexandra and Jasmine Lia were born, you have my word, I’ll love, protect, guide and make ya laugh for the rest of my life. Your crazy dad has many responsibilities and wears many hats in this big ol’ world, but being your dad will always be the one I’m most proud to wear. Oh and one more thing.. you’re gonna love rollin’ in daddy’s pick up truck. #TianaGiaJohnson🌺 #3rdDaughter #BlessesAndGratefulMan #ImInTROUBLE

Sunil Grover is on a roll in the television world and has earned a considerable fan following for himself. Now, if reports are to be believed, the ace comedian has been roped in for a major Bollywood film.

Reportedly, Sunil, who has joined the cast recently, will be playing Salman’s friend in the film and his role will veer away from the conventional comedic role seen in most B-town films.

Of course, working in films is not very new for Sunil as he has been a part of movies like ‘Ghajini’, ‘Gabbar is Back’, ‘Baaghi’ among many others.

‘Bharat’ is slated for an Eid release next year.

Priyanka Chopra recently paid two visits to her homeland, India a few days back. The first time when she came was for about 2 weeks and her recent visit was for merely 16 hours for attending an event in Mumbai. Now she is back in Ireland to resume her shooting for the third season of her American TV show ‘Quantico’. While her Bollywood projects still pose a question in the media’s and the fans’ minds, it was recently reported that she will be a part of Salman Khan starrer ‘Bharat’ which is being headlined by Ali Abbas Zafar.

However, as per latest reports in a media portal, PeeCee will apparently not be roped in for ‘Bharat’ because of Salman Khan. Conjectures suggest that years ago Salman Khan had reportedly vowed to never collaborate with Priyanka. The reason behind this speculation is still a mystery. Though she is extremely close to Arpita and Alvira and always makes it a point to catch up with Salman’s sisters when she is in town.

A source close to the ‘Race 3’ actor revealed that no matter how hard Priyanka tries to mend ways with Salman, it is still not going to change his mind. Emphasising that Priyanka being a part of ‘Bharat’ is a rumour, the source said that they are being floated by someone’s publicity machinery in the hope that they would influence the choice of leading lady in the film. Since the film is out an out a Salman movie, the makers are looking to cast a new face opposite him.

Priyanka Chopra has been sharing several pictures on Instagram from the set of Quantico. This is part of the actor’s countdown to the new season of the show, which kicks off on April 26. After wrapping up a schedule in Ireland, Priyanka Chopra is now shooting in Italy.

The show also stars Russell Tovey, Alan Powell and Blair Underwood.

Quantico season three is scheduled to premiere in April. Here are some pictures and videos Priyanka Chopra has shared on her Instagram account:

In contention for Salman Khan’s next, Priyanka Chopra said to be keen to bow out of Quantico

Still from Quantico

She may have made a splash in the West courtesy her Alex Parrish act, but mid-day has it that Priyanka Chopra is considering opting out of Quantico – blame it on her love for Bollywood movies. The actor, who made a pit stop in India last week before flying out to Ireland for the drama’s third season shoot, went through a few Hindi film scripts. Salman Khan’s Bharat was apparently one of the few that caught her fancy.

Says a source, “Priyanka was quite taken by the script of Bharat. What also added to her excitement was that it would give her the chance to team up with Salman after a decade. But she’s not signed on the dotted line yet.”

However, if she gives her nod to this project, it’ll throw a spanner in the next season of Quantico. An insider suggests that Priyanka Chopra is not too keen on the cop drama having a fourth season. “Priyanka feels the show will lose steam if they continue with more seasons. Before pursuing any more international offers, she wants to do a Hindi film.”

Chopra is expected to return to India later this year after promoting the latest season of Quantico in the US. “Any clarity on Quantico’s next season will only come after the third season has been aired. She won’t say no to them if the next season is sanctioned, but she fears being repetitive,” adds the source. Chopra’s spokesperson refused to comment.

Priyanka Chopra shared this throwback photo on her Instagram account.

Priyanka Chopra got her hands on a really old family picture, wherein, we see a baby Priyanka Chopra in mother Madhu Chopra’s arms and late father Dr. Ashok Chopra. Seemingly, the photo was taken when Priyanka was just a few months old. Well, the actress is completely unrecognisable as a toddler.

“Major throwback. Mommy daddy and baby me.. I’d never seen this picture until now. The sketch behind us was made by my dad. Besides being a surgeon he was an extremely creative man. Digging the ‘stache dad,” this is what Priyanka Chopra wrote.

The black-and-white photo received zillions of likes in a span of just a few hours. The global girl often gives a sneak-peak into her family by sharing some really old memories on desired occasions.

This is one of the photos shared by Priyanka Chopra:

Meanwhile, Priyanka Chopra is currently in Mumbai and will begin work on her upcoming film, based on the life of astronaut Kalpana Chawla in the next month. Co-incidently, Shah Rukh Khan too will start prepping for Rakesh Sharma biopic. When original choice Aamir Khan was on board for the Sharma biopic, there was talk that PeeCee would play his wife. We hope the two space sagas do not collide at the box office as well.

According to reports, Priyanka Chopra will make star alongside Salman Khan in Ali Abbas Zafar directorial, Bharat

Ever since, Priyanka Chopra made it official that a Bollywood film is “happening” through an informal video chat with Ranveer Singh, speculations about her ‘comeback’ films have refused to rest. However, a report in Dna claims that it is Tiger Zinda Hai director, Ali Abbas Zafar’s film, Bharat, that will reunite the pair of Salman Khan and Priyanka Chopra.

Bharat is produced by Salman Khan‘s brother-in-law, Atul Agnihotri. If this works out, it will mark the reunion of Salman and Priyanka after a huge gap of 10 years.

Salman and Priyanka Chopra were cast opposite each other for the first time in Mujhse Shaadi Karogi (2004). Since then, they have also worked in Salaam-e-Ishq: A Tribute to Love (2007) and God Tussi Great Ho (2008).

“Priyanka has also worked with Ali in Gunday (2014) and shares a good rapport with him. This film will see the three of them collaborate for the first time,” informed the source to the daily, stating that desi girl shares a good rapport with Ali Abbas Zafar.

The publication also suggests that recently, Ali met Priyanka in New York where she was shooting for the next season of her international TV series Quantico. Bharat is expected to roll out mid-2018. The source further informed, “The fact that their Jodi is coming together after such a long time will surely be exciting news for their fans.”

There was also news of Priyanka Chopra doing astronaut Rakesh Sharma’s biopic alongside Aamir Khan, and both their fans were excited to see this first-time pair. However, Aamir opted out of the film and Shah Rukh Khan replaced him. 

When the Baywatch actress was asked about it at one of the award shows, this is what she said, “I have finalised two-three scripts. Now, I am left to make announcements. Rakesh Sharma biopic was one of those scripts. I was approached for that film when Aamir was doing it… He is not in the film now. We were supposed to do it in 2019. Now, I don’t know.”

To tackle gender inequality in industry, Priyanka Chopra’s production house encourages women to join workforce; promises them pay equity

Priyanka Chopra
Priyanka Chopra

Women's DayHaving noticed the gender inequality prevalent in Indian cinema, Priyanka Chopra and her mother Madhu Chopra have initiated changes in their production house, Purple Pebble Pictures. Insiders from the banner suggest that the duo is focusing on roping in more women artistes for their upcoming projects to create a gender-neutral workplace, with equal importance to pay parity.

In their bid to support pay equity, Priyanka Chopra‘s studio, Purple Pebble Pictures, has included a rider in the contracts of their artistes clearly stating that gender won’t be one of the determining factors in their remuneration. Madhu Chopra asserts that the inclusion of women in the production house isn’t restricted to direction or acting. “We have women story writers, directors and camera technicians. So in every aspect of filmmaking, we are encouraging women. Although I would reiterate that we give equal opportunity, there is a certain bias towards women at the moment because they are marginalised and we have to give them an additional push.”

Dr Madhu Chopra

Ask her about pay equity and she says that they are creating a set-up where lead actors of projects will be paid at par, irrespective of their gender. “The pay scale is determined by the merit, qualification and talent. So there are different parameters, but gender is definitely not one of them. We believe in gender equality and that applies to remuneration too.”

Priyanka is also keen on backing more women-oriented stories helmed by women filmmakers. While their recently wrapped-up film Firebrand has National Award winner Aruna Raje at the helm, the studio’s last offering — the Sikkimese film Pahuna: The Little Visitors — was directed by Paakhi Tyrewala. Madhu adds, “Female-centric stories make the most impact on people. Everyone knows that women are strong enough to be talked about. The impact that I am expecting [from these developments] is that women will rise from where they have been put and walk shoulder to shoulder with their male counterparts.”
