Filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj said he is in talks with actress Priyanka Chopra for a film which might go on floors sometime next year.

Earlier, the director had expressed his desire to work with Priyanka on a project. It was reported that he would do a film based on Twelfth Night with the Quantico star.

When asked about it, Vishal told reporters: “Priyanka also wants to work with me. And we are working with each other. Hopefully, we will start the film next year.”

The duo previously collaborated on 7 Khoon Maaf, which was an adaptation of the short story Susanna’s Seven Husbands by Ruskin Bond and Kaminey.

The director is ready with his next project, Pataakha, a comedy-drama about two sisters, Badki and Chhutki and, is based on an acclaimed short-story by renowned writer Charan Singh Pathik.

Vishal, however, was supposed to begin a film with Irrfan earlier this year before the actor had to head to London for his treatment. The director ultimately put the film on hold.

Asked about it, he said: “I don’t know about the film’s status. I can tell you my heart’s status and it is that we all are praying for him. Obviously I’m missing him as a friend but also as an audience. I want to see him on screen again, whether it’s my film or someone else’s.”
