Much has been written about Priyanka Chopra’s exit from Salman Khan’s Bharat and her possible engagement to singer Nick Jonas who she has been allegedly dating for the last two months.
While the world was going gaga over engagement, there were reports of how her exit had caused some heartburn in Salman Khan’s camp. It was even said that Salman may not take it too kindly since their relationship had not been too great to begin with.
As it turns out, Priyanka need not have worried about Salman’s reaction at all since she is apparently on to bigger and brighter things. Yes, Priyanka has signed a Hollywood film and this is a huge one – she is the female lead opposite Chris Pratt (YES!) in Universal Studio’s Cowboy Ninja Viking. Hollywood Reporter says that the Quantico star will play the love interest of Pratt in the big-budget film that is currently in pre-production stages. And wait, there’s more! The film is being directed by Michelle MacLaren, the famous producer and director known for Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones. Yes! THAT’S how big her project is.
So what’s the story all about? Based on the Image Comics graphic novel by A.J. Lieberman and illustrator Riley Rossmo, the film revolves around a counter-intelligence unit formed by psychotherapist Dr. Sebastian Ghislain, who transforms agents known as Triplets, a reference to multiple personalities. Pratt is playing a formidable agent with the fighting skills and personalities of a cowboy, a ninja and a viking.
It can’t get bigger or better. So can you really blame Priyanka if a Bollywood film that is most likely to revolved entirely around Salman Khan, isn’t so attractive as an offer? Hollywood’s gain is certainly Bollywood’s big loss! Keep rocking girl!
