Contrary to the strong speculations about the joint venture between Madhur Bhandarkar and Priyanka Chopra titled ‘Madamji’ having been shelved completely, the ‘Fashion’ director states otherwise. Speaking at an special fashion show event held to promote his upcoming project ‘Calendar Girls’, Madhur mentioned that the subject of ‘Madamji’ was very close to his heart and will surely take shape for the silver screen.
Further mentioning about the reasons for the project to get delayed, the director explained about the female lead actress Priyanka’s overly busy schedule having undertaken projects like ‘Bajirao Mastani’ and American TV show ‘Quantico’. However, there were strong rumors about clash of opinions and differences having cropped up between the maker and the actress which has led to the shelving of the project completely.
‘Madamji’ was to mark the entry of Priyanka Chopra in the field of production. The actress, having worked with Madhur Bhandarkar in ‘Fashion’ which fetched Priyanka her first National Award, was impressed by Madhur’s directorial skills and handling of women oriented subjects. We sincerely hope that, things are sorted out and the project is back on track.
