riyanka Chopra might have bowed out of Ali Abbas Zafar's Bharat, but she is set to return to Bollywood with an even bigger project. It is no secret that filmmaker Rakesh Roshan is working on the script of Krrish 4, which is set for December 2020 release. If Hrithik Roshan will once again return as the caped crusader, buzz has it that Priyanka, too, will be seen in the fourth instalment of the hit franchise.
According to a report in a daily, Priyanka has given a green signal to Krrish 4. The 36-year-old actress, who has been a part of Krrish and Krrish 3, will also be a part of the fourth instalment.
"Priyanka has definitely given the green signal for the next installment of Krrish. She has been a part of the first two Krrish films. When Rakeshji sounded her out about the fourth Krrish film, she happily agreed," a source told the daily.
The report further suggests that Roshan Sr was apprehensive of casting her in Krrish 4, owing to her global star image now. Reportedly, he thought that Priyanka won't be interested to be a part of the franchise any longer. However, buzz has it that she has agreed to do the film.
"Since she's such a big global star now, Rakeshji thought she may not want to be part of a desi franchise where she doesnt play the main character. But, Priyankas association with the Roshans goes back a long way. She has always been a loyal big-hearted girl. At a time when Sunny Deol was down and out, she agreed to play his leading lady because she had made her debut with him. When a down-and-out producer KC Bokadia wanted to complete a project with Govinda and Priyanka, she agreed knowing it would embarrass her career. Loyalty is big for Priyanka," the source added.
Priyanka is expected to begin shooting for the film in mid 2019.
