After making several socio-political films, Tigmanshu Dhulia decided to make his first ‘pure love story’ – Milan Talkies. While ImranKhan was signed on to play the male lead, it was rumored that Sonakshi Sinha will be the one to romance the actor. However, it has been found that Priyanka Chopramay be finalized as the female lead in the project.
When contacted, the CEO of producers Balaji Motion Pictures, Tanuj Garg refrained from revealing the name of the actress but said that they were “speaking to someone and will make a formal announcement once ready.”Interestingly, Garg added, “Sonakshi was never signed so the question of replacing her doesn’t arise.”However, while Garg refused to name an actress, a source close to Priyanka Chopra maintained that the actress has indeed accepted the offer to star opposite mran in the film. Tigmanshu had earlier revealed that Milan Talkies would be a small town romance.
“The crux of the story is that though the communication has become easy thanks to mobile phones and everything, it is still very difficult to fall in love in small towns,” he had said in an interview. “Priyanka loved the subject and wanted to work with Tigmanshu,” said the source.
