Director Maneesh Shrama says that Priyanka Chopra didn’t suggest her cousin Parineeti’s name for “Ladies V/S Ricky Bahl”.
“Parineeti is a story in itself. It’s not that Priyanka suggested her name. She was working with the marketing department of Yash Raj films. When I got my script for ‘Ladies V/S Ricky Bahl’, for one part I thought she’ll be very good. So I asked her if she would be interested,” Sharma told IANS.
“She said yes, but I told her that she would have to audition for it, which she did keenly and excitedly and she was pretty good. So that’s how she came on board. She is a remarkable talent,” he added.
“Ladies V/S Ricky Bahl” is a romantic comedy, where a smooth and charming conman, Ricky Bahl, cons girls for a living but finally meets his match.
Produced by Aditya Chopra, the film stars Anushka Sharma, Dipannita Sharma, Aditi Sharma and Ranveer Singh.
