Sanjay Leela Bhansali is gearing up for his next film, Padmavati. Apparently Priyanka Chopra was very keen on working with SLB and had also made her intentions known to him. However, according to a report in Filmfare, Bhansali thought Deepika Padukone was a better fit for the character and cast her instead. Reportedly, PC is fine with it as the filmmaker ensured her that the two will work together very soon.
I wish Sanjay can rope in PC for a special item number though.
