EXCLUSIVE: Parineeti Chopra teams up with Dinesh Vijan for a musical set in the UK
Parineeti Chopra and Dinesh Vijan have already found a new project to collaborate on after their last attempt with Shiddat 2 fell through early this year.
Parineeti Chopra to start shooting for this yet-untitled film in October 2023
It’s a delightful and entertaining story centered around an independent woman
Maddock Films has a huge slate of projects lined up for release in 2023-2024
Dinesh Vijan’s Maddock Films announced Shiddat 2 early this year, starring Sunny Kaushal and Parineeti Chopra. However, the film underwent a casting change as Parineeti had to back out due to scheduling conflicts. At that time, Parineeti and Dinesh mutually decided to part ways, with a promise to collaborate on a different project. It appears that they have indeed found an exciting script to work on, and preparations are already underway at Maddock Films.
Pinkvilla has exclusively learnt that Parineeti Chopra is set to star in a musical film under Dinesh Vijan's production. This untitled project is said to be a women-led story set in the UK, scheduled to begin filming around October 2023. A source close to the development shared, "It’s a delightful and entertaining story centered around an independent woman, with Parineeti playing a bubbly character. While the director and other movie details are currently kept under wraps, the pre-production is set to commence next month. The makers are also in discussions with Anupam Kher for an important role."
Parineeti is expected to start shooting for Dinesh Vijan's production before her wedding to Aam Aadmi Party member Raghav Chadha, reportedly scheduled for November 2023. Prior to that, she is also set to appear in Akshay Kumar’s The Great Indian Rescue, set to release in theaters on October 5. In this Tinu Suresh Desai-directed rescue drama based on the 1989 Raniganj coalfield disaster, she portrays the wife of mining engineer Jaswant Singh Gill. Following this, Parineeti will star alongside Diljit Dosanjh in Imtiaz Ali’s biographical drama, Amar Singh Chamkila, slated for release on Netflix early next year.
Maddock Films has a massive lineup of films ahead
