Parineeti Chopra, Priyanka Chopra’s cousin, has apparently shoved Anushka Sharma who was the favorite of the production house that founded her.
Anushka Sharma did three films of the same banner like Band Bajaa Baraat, Badmaash Company and Ladies vs Ricky Bahl.
Anushka was however overshadowed by Parineeti Chopra at least some feel so. Everyone who saw the movie appreciated this new girl. Yash Raj Productions have also noticed Parineeti’s performance in the film. If reports are to believe they are replacing her in the role which was previously offered to Anushka Sharma in one of their upcoming films.
“Aditya Chopra made that call,” says our source. “Everyone loved Parineeti more than Anushka. Gauging by the response, they’ve decided to promote her aggressively. She’s been assigned the best support team from the banner.”
Parineeti is also signed by Boney Kapoor for Ishaqzaade where his son is making a Bollywood entry. “The banner is shielding her from media interactions because they want to launch her in a big way next year. They’ve asked her to lie low till Ishaqzaade is ready for release.” When asked, a spokesperson from the production house says, “Casting decisions are made only on one parameter – the script – followed by the director’s vision.”
