It was earlier reported that the director wanted to cast Priyanka in the film on the famous play. The two had even met three to four times to discuss it but owing to her commitments in Hollywood, she couldn’t oblige with dates. 

Vishal confirmed the news saying, “Priyanka (also) wants to work with me. And we are working with each other. Hopefully, we will start the film next year.” 

Vishal was present at the song launch of his upcoming film ‘Patakha’, starring Sanya Malhotra, Radhika Madan and Sunil Grover in lead roles. The film is based on a short story by Hindi writer Charan Singh Pathik and revolves around two sisters who happen to be each other’s biggest enemies.

‘Patakha’ is co-produced by Rekha Bhardwaj. It will release on September 28, in a box office clash with Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma starrer ‘Sui Dhaaga’. 

Interestingly, Priyanka had wished Vishal on his film 'Patakha', as she shared the film's poster on Twitter.
