Bollywood Garam: There has been a lot of discussions surrounding the casting of the movie ‘2 States’, which is based on Chetan Bhagat’s ‘2 States’. But after some time, the casting of the movie has been finalized, and it will have Shahrukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra.
The past few days has seen some questions raised only about the female lead of the movie, as Shahrukh was already finalized. Earlier, director Vishal Bhardwaj had insisted on having a fresh face to play the role of a south Indian girl, but later Bhardwaj and Shahrukh had decided that Priyanka would be best for the role. Questions were also raised if the ‘Kaminey’ actress being a Punjabi would be able to pull off the role of a south Indian role.
Now even the producer Sajid Nadiadwala and the director are convinced that the actress can work on the south Indian accent to do justice to the role. There was also a point when the makers of the movie were considering a south Indian actress for the role. The movie will go on floors in the second half of the year 2012. 2 States is a story of two youngsters in love and belong to two different states, Punjab and Tamil Nadu. The story is about the struggle of the couple to convince their parent for their wedding.
If Priyanka is able to match the class of the south Indian accent, this will prove her ability to become a great actor. Time will tell!
