Priyanka Chopra got the tinselvile talking after their were reports of her being roped in for British-Indian filmmaker Gurinder Chadha's next directorial venture. However, PeeCee's mother Madhu Chopra has clarified that there are no truth behind these rumors.
She further asserted that the reports of Priyanka and Gurinder working together got abuzz after Madhu was spotted having a conversation with the filmmaker over a cup of coffee.
"It is true that I went to Cannes with our Sikkimese film Pahuna for its trailer launch and we met Gurinder there. She told me that she is visiting India soon for her upcoming film 'Partition: 1947' and that we should catch up soon. So I went to meet her at the trailer launch of her film and then went to a coffee shop, where few journalists saw us chatting and made news out of it. She was talking about her upcoming projects and the kind of stories she is working on etc. but we did not have any conversation on casting Priyanka in her next. You know, the next day when news came out, Gurinder got so upset and texted me saying 'Indian media is so exasperating! What is wrong with them?'," Madhu told IANS
"Gurinder also told me that 'Madhu, I did not talk to the press or gave any quotes, so please don't take me wrong'. This is annoying; journalists should be more responsible while reporting on anything," added Chopra.
Gurinder Chadha is in the country for the promotion of her upcoming movie 'Partition:1947' starring Huma Qureshi and late actor Om Puri in key roles.
On the other hand, Priyanka is busy with her upcoming Marathi venture 'Kay Re Rascalaa' which is slated to release on July 14.
