According to a report published in DNA, Parineeti, who is very close to YRF head Aditya Chopra has been roped in to play the lead role in the film.
“Pari’s always been a YRF favourite; the choice was not surprising. Aditya (Chopra)was angry with Kangana for talking about the film. He immediately called her up and got her on board. Obviously, Pari won’t say no to her mentor,” a source was quoted by DNA.
The report further suggests that Parineeti, who is remembered for her portrayal in films like ‘Ishaqzaade’, Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl’ and ‘Hasee Toh Phasee’, only agreed to come onboard because it was a meaty role.
Like Salman, Parineeti will also play the role of a wrestler in the film. The movie is slated to release next year.
