There have been rumors and there have been some strange ones at that - but the strangest of them all came in the form of one revolving around our very own Priyanka Chopra
. The rumor said that Priyanka was to play the role of a transvestite in the film Ra.One
directed by Anubhav Sinha
, starring Shahrukh Khan, Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Rampal in pivotal roles.
An international website of quite a high-profile recently reported that Piggy Chops has been hired to play the role of a
person who is affected by 'transvestism
' and the website bearing high-reputation has been trusted by viewers and fans worldwide without even blinking an eye!
Clearly, all the speculations and eyebrow raising have been to a halt as director Anubhav Sinha
has come forth and declared that Priyanka Chopra
is not playing the role of a transvestite - a person who prefers wearing the garb of the opposite sex. However, the director did agree that Priyanka is doing a friendly appearance in the sci-fi flick. Any more information about the appearance is being closely guarded.
He seemed too upset to reveal anything other than his annoyance at such inane rumors. He shared his feelings over this ridiculous piece of news by saying that some freak out of desperation has turned mischievous and uploaded this on the site. He also said that he feels like someone is trying to deliberately spread wrong words about the film, as it's getting closer to its release.
Well, undoubtedly Priyanka has portrayed very stand-out roles in her career such as a serial-husband killer in the very recent 7 Khoon Maaf, but taking up the role of a transvestite may have gone a bit too overboard for her fans to digest!
Now that the director has cleared all the clouds - we wonder how Piggy Chops will react to such news; we'll have to wait and watch we guess!
