Is Priyanka Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s new muse?
Priyanka Chopra, who plays the lead in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's co-production Mary Kom, seems to be the filmmaker's latest muse.
It was Aishwarya Rai who at one time inspired Sanjay Leela Bhansali to make a trilogy of great films - Devdas, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam and Guzaarish.
For a while it was Rani Mukerji who seemed to occupy Bhansali's muse-space. Then it seemed Deepika Padukone had taken over when he signed her for Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela and Bajirao Mastani.
Even Priyanka Chopra especially flew into Mumbai to attend the first-look event for Mary Kom.
She also flew in to attend a special birthday party hosted by the filmmaker for her recently.
A source close to Bhansali said: ‘Never in his life would Sanjay have dreamt of hosting a party for anyone in his house. In fact, he has never had a party in his house. But he did it for PC last week on the occasion of her birthday. He not only hosted a birthday party for PC he also personally invited all his friends, and hers.
