Priyanka Chopra's role in her forthcoming movie Barfi! is said to be 'different' and challenging. But did you know that the role was offered to Asin before it landed in Pee Cee's kitty? In a recent Bollywood Hungama chat , I asked Asin "Asin did u c Barfee trailer? If Priyanka role was offered to u, would you have agreeed to do it?"
Our Asin replied "actually i was offered both those roles madev. anurag had come to me first after writing barfii" Read the full chat script here Bollywood Hungama chat
Well, buzz suggests that this one is true. And we are told that not only Priyanka's but Ileana D'Cruz's role was also offered to Asin. Sadly, she turned down both. Tch tch!
And we wonder why. Was it because Asin's dates were already booked for Bol Bachchan – a movie in which she had li'l to do? Or was the role in Barfi! too 'different' for Asin's taste and not safe enough? We have no clue. But we will find out soon enough.
It really looks as if Asin has become too comfortable in the masala roles she has always been associated with in Bollywood, doesn't it? Time for a makeover, babe!
