Priyanka Chopra seems to be flying high. After bagging a cool Rs. 2.8 crore for an item song in the Sanjay Gupta-directed Shootout At Wadala, we have learnt that Ekta Kapoor arranged a chartered flight to ensure that PC reached Kolkata in time after being delayed while shooting for the same number in Mumbai.

An insider from the production house reveals that Priyanka was supposed to complete the item number by early evening and catch a flight to Kolkata to shoot for Yash Raj Film’s Gunday. “Had she left the shoot and gone to Kolkata, the song would have been incomplete, so she preferred to leave after completing it,” says the source.

The actor was supposed to reach Kolkata by Wednesday night as she was part of the Thursday morning schedule of Gunday. Her shoot in Mumbai, however, went on till late evening and Priyanka missed her flight.

The actor left the sets at Film City around 10 pm after completing the shoot and went to the airport directly from there. “She boarded the flight at around 11 pm and reached Kolkata in the wee hours of Thursday,” reveals the source.

Priyanka was also able to be on the sets on time that morning.

When contacted Ekta Kapoor remained unavailable for a comment but a highly-placed spokesperson from the production house confirmed the news.
