Priyanka Chopra’s sister Meera Chopra marked her Bollywood debut with 1920 London, but the film did little for her career. Later, the buzz was that Priyanka was trying to help Meera bag a few projects. She is currently, however, working on a Canadian television series. All this while, one of Meera’s untitled films, which was supposed to be directed by Ram Gopal Varma, has been in the pipeline for the past two years. According to the latest development, the director has walked out of the project, apparently at the insistence of co-producer and actor Sachiin Joshi, who has asked for the film to be handed over to another director.
But he’s not the only one miffed with the turn of events. Says a source, “Meera doesn’t want this film to be made anymore either. She will be seen alongside Sachiin in the film. But given how things have shaped up so far, she feels that the film isn’t quite looking the way it did when it was offered to her. As for Sachiin, he wasn’t happy about the climax that was discussed. A new director who assisted RGV long ago has now been roped in to carry the film forward.” When contacted, Sachiin’s spokesperson did not confirm or deny the report.
