Mumbai, July 3 -- Recently, the teaser of Salman Khan's 2016 release, Sultan, created a stir on social media.
According to sources, Priyanka Chopra has been offered to play the female lead in the film. But the actress apparently wants her cousin, Parineeti Chopra, to play the part.
Priyanka has recommended Parineeti's name to the makers, as she wants them to offer her this film, which she feels will help revive the latter's career.
However, sources claim that director Ali Abbas Zafar is a bit sceptical about Parineeti fitting the bill. A final decision is expected in the next couple of days.
When contacted, the production house that is backing the film said that an official announcement will be made soon.
