“It is true that I went to Cannes with our Sikkimese film Pahuna for its trailer launch and we met Gurinder there. She told me that she is visiting India for her upcoming film Partition: 1947 and that we should catch up soon. So I went to meet her at the trailer launch of her film and then went to a coffee shop, where few journalists saw us chatting and made news out of it!”
“She was talking about her upcoming projects and the kind of stories she is working on etc., but we did not have any conversation on casting Priyanka in her next. You know, the next day when news came out, Gurinder got so upset and texted me saying ‘Indian media is so exasperating! What is wrong with them?’” she said.
“Gurinder also told me, ‘Madhu, I did not talk to the press or give any quotes, so please don’t take me wrong’. This is annoying; journalists should be more responsible while reporting on anything,” added Chopra.
Reports that Chopra and Chadha would team up for a film have been in circulation for a while now.
