Shraddha Kapoor replaces Priyanka Chopra in Milan Talkies

Big things are happening to the Aashiqui 2 girl Shraddha Kapoor's career. Suddenly she is here, there and everywhere.

Now in a position to pick and choose, Shraddha has just given the nod to Tigmanshu Dhulia's Milan Talkies, thereby replacing Priyanka Chopra who was until recently, very excited about working with Tigmanshu.

Priyanka suddenly cooled down and became evasive about the project. When asked about it, Priyanka said, "They (the Milan Talkies team) haven't got back to me."

Now we know the reason why Priyanka is no more part of Milan Talkies. She has been replaced by Shraddha Kapoor. Priyanka can seek solace for her loss in the fact that even Imran Khan who was to co-star with her is not part of the project any more.

Says a source close to the project, "After Bullett Raja where he has cast Saif and Sonakshi together for the first time, Tigmanshu and his producer Ekta Kapoor were keen to cast another untried pair in Milan Talkies. Imran and Priyanka made a lot of box-office sense together. But when Imran opted out and was replaced by Shahid Kapoor, Tigmanshu had no choice but to replace Priyanka since Shahid and Priyanka together after Teri Meri Kahaani spelt doom."

Shraddha, on the other hand, is felt to be the new rising female actor after Aashiqui 2. Both the male and female protagonist in Milan Talkies have equally powerful parts.

Says a source, "After Aashiqui 2, Tigmanshu feels Shraddha can carry off the complex dramatic moments as well as the light-hearted interludes in Milan Talkies."

As for Priyanka she seems to be gravitating towards the lighter fun parts after a series of heavyweight dramatic roles. Says a source close to Priyanka, "At the moment Mary Kom is her only emotionally challenging role. That apart PC is looking for a change of mood after Saat Khoon Maaf, Barfi and Teri Meri Kahaani."
