Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra has denied signing a film based on Chetan Bhagat’s“2 States: The Story of My Marriage”, book which is said to feature superstar Shah Rukh Khan.
“I am not in discussion with anyone regarding ’2 States’. There is a great team involved, including Shah Rukh Khan, Sajid Nadiadwala and Vishal Bharadwaj and I definitely look forward to working with them at some point in the future,” Priyanka told IANS.
“However at this time, I am just committed to completing my existing projects on hand, which include Kunal Kohli’s next ‘Barfee’, and ‘Krrish 2′,” added the 28-year-old.
“2 States: The Story of My Marriage” is the third Chetan Bhagat novel to inspire a movie, after “Hello”, based on his book “One Night @ The Call Centre” and the superhit “3 Idiots”, inspired by his bestseller “Five Point Someone”.
If Priyanka had taken up “2 States”, it would have been her third movie based on a novel. The first was Ashutosh Gowariker’s “What’s Your Rashee?”, based on Madhu Rye’s “Kimball Ravenswood”, followed by “7 Khoon Maaf”, inspired by Ruskin Bond’s short story “Susanna’s Seven Husbands”.
