Farah Khan with Priyanka Chopra at location where the ad was shot.
While the speculation whether Farah Khan will cast Priyanka Chopra in Happy New Year continues, the actress and the director have just finished shooting for an ad film.The ad film is for a dish washing detergent. It is learnt that PC made a special request for the director. Says a source, “PC and Farah had been wanting to work together for years. Although Farah has directed her contemporaries Katrina Kaif and Deepika Padukone, she hasn’t worked with PC. When the actress was asked if she had any preference for someone to direct the ad film, sheimmediately suggested Farah’s name. They had great fun while shooting and completed a 10-hour shoot in less that 5 hours!” Says Farah, “I had directed many ads after Main Hoon Na but had stopped more than a couple of years ago. It was great fun working with PC. She’s very fast and takes less than an hour to get ready. Priyanka is a fabulous actress and lovely girl!” Does that mean she’s now considering Priyanka for her film with Shah Rukh? Farah laughs, “Don’t look too deep intoit. One has nothing to do with the other. We haven’t finalised the actress as yet.”
