All speculations can well be put to rest. Parineeti Chopra would have to wait before she is seen on the big screen with Shah Rukh Khan. Though ever since the announcement of Fan, there were rumours of the two being paired opposite each other, unfortunately this has turned out to be, well, just plain rumours.
“In fact if you see an official communication from Yash Raj Films around the cast of Fan, there is no mention of a leading lady out there. Otherwise they never keep any suspense around their cast and crew. If Parineeti was in the film, her name would have been announced,” informs our source.
Rumours started catching heat especially after it was announced that Fan would be directed by Maneesh Sharma. Since the filmmaker’s last two films – Shuddh Desi Romance and Ladies v/s Ricky Bahl – have both featured Parineeti while producer Aditya Chopra too has shown great faith in the young woman’s talent, it seemed like a given that Parineeti would now get her chance and graduate to the Shah Rukh starrer.
“It is not happening though. Parineeti is anyways working on three films – Hasee Toh Phasee, Daawat-E-Ishq and Kill Dil – which will keep her engaged till end of year. Let’s see, perhaps she would get to do something with the superstar in 2015 or beyond,” says a close associate.
When contacted, Parineeti too denied her involvement with Fan. “No, I am not in Fan. There is not even an iota of truth to the rumours making the rounds,” she said.
