It is confirmed. Bollywood beauty Priyanka Chopra is all set to reprise her role of femme fatale Roma in the sequel to Farhan Akhtar`s 2006 `Don-The Chase Begins Again`.
Though it was always on cards that Shah Rukh Khan would feature in `Don 2` which is expected to pick up from where the remake of the Amitabh Bachchan starrer `Don` left, there was always mystery around the presence of the leading lady in the film.
However, Chopra, who recently won the national award for the best actress for her role in `Fashion`, has confirmed her presence in the sequel.”Yes, I am doing `Don 2`. Ever since I worked in the first movie, I was looking forward to being on board for the sequel as well. It would be good to be a part of `Don 2` as it is an action thriller,” Chopra told reporters from the US where she is currently shooting with Ranbir Kapoor for Siddharth Anand`s `Anjaana Anjaani`.
Chopra reportedly learnt martial arts for her role of revenge thursty Roma in the film, who tries to woo Don, played by Shah Rukh, to avenge the death of her sister. Her recent release `Pyaar Impossible` may have failed to take off at the box office but the 27-year-old actress is looking forward to an eventful year ahead. She is busy wrapping up `Anjaana Anjaani` and will begin shooting for Vishal Bharadwaj`s next film after `Kaminey`.
“I am really excited about Vishalji`s next film. After `Kaminey`, I am so keen to get on his sets once again,” Priyanka said.Though there is grapevine that in the film she is playing the role of a woman who is wed to seven different men, an official confirmation is yet to come in. However, it is certain that one of the men in the film would be Malayalam star and National Award winner Mohanlal.
Priyanka, however, will not be the leading lady in Tarun Mansukhani`s sequel to `Dostana’, which made waves when released in 2008. The film is all set to get rolling this year.”No, I am not the leading lady of `Dostana 2`. My story had ended in `Dostana` and there was no point being paired with any of the boys (Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham) in the sequel. But yes, I will certainly be there in a special appearance and would return for a short while in the film as their friend,” she said.
