The mystery surrounding Vishal Bharadwaj’s Saat Khoon Maaf deepens and we don’t mean the storyline. Even as the hard-hitting director shoots this film behind closed doors, speculation over who will play Priyanka Chopra’s seven husbands is at fever pitch.
The latest buzz is that Bharadwaj is talking to Hollywood hunk Gerard Butler to play one of her seven husbands and may even soon clinch the deal as Butler “is very keen to work with Priyanka Chopra”.
Meanwhile, the roster of husbands has the following names on it: Naseeruddin Shah plays the oldest husband while others are South actor Mohanlal, John Abraham, Irrfan Khan, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Shah's son Vivaan.
Butler and Chopra were in the news last year when the Hollywood actor was invited to her birthday party at her residence on July 18 last year. Apparently Gerard was so smitten by Chopra that he proposed to her every few minutes!
Saat Khoon Maaf’s Line Producer Vikas Mehta feigned ignorance and said, “I am not the casting producer nor am I at liberty to reveal details of the film. You will have to talk to director Vishal Bharadwaj and confirm the news.”
Meanwhile, Bharadwaj is busy wrapping up shooting in Kashmir and will begin his next schedule in Bangalore on May 20, where Butler is expected to join the rest of the movie’s cast.
