Priyanka Chopra has been making headlines ever since she got into an alleged relationship with pop star Nick Jonas. The two are often spotted sashaying around the New York City. Priyanka also went as Nick’s plus one at his cousin’s wedding. Last month, Priyanka and Nick arrived in India to meet Priyanka’s mother and also attended the Ambani engagement bash as a couple. Before leaving for New York, they also went to Goa for a short holiday.
Priyanka has been focusing more on her Hollywood career for the past few years. Her last release in Bollywood was 2 years ago. In a news that made her fans delighted, Priyanka had signed up for her comeback film in Bollywood with Ali Abbas Zafar’s ‘Bharat’. IT also stars Salman Khan, Disha Patani, and Tabu in lead roles.

Last few days. Tabloids and media portals are flooded with rumours and speculations about Priyanka’s alleged engagement with Nick, despite no confirmation or announcement from either of them. But the latest reports suggest otherwise.
Priyanka might or might not be engaged to Nick (we still aren’t sure if its true), but that is definitely not the reason why the actress opted out of ‘Bharat’. According to a leading entertainment portal, Priyanka has bagged the lead role opposite Chris Pratt in Universal’s “Cowboy Ninja Viking”. The Quantico star will play the love interest of the male lead in the big-budgeted film.
It will be directed by Game of Thrones director, Michelle MacLaren from a screenplay by Dan Mazeau, Ryan Engle, Craig Mazin, Paul Wernick and David Reese. The film is going to be based on the Image Comics graphic novel by A.J. Lieberman and illustrator Riley Rossmo. The plot of the film revolves around a counter-intelligence unit composed by psychotherapist Dr Sebastian Ghislain. Chris Pratt will play the character of Duncan, an incredible agent with the fighting skills of a cowboy, a ninja and a Viking.
If sources are to be believed, Priyanka will play the role of a psychologist Sara Nix who has been assigned the duty of controlling Duncan and she might develop feelings for him despite their professional relationship.
‘Cowboy Ninja Viking’ is slated to release next year on 29 June 2019.
