No similarity between Kunal's film and 'Heroine': Priyanka Chopra

New Delhi, July 20 (IANS) Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra has outrightly denied any similarities between Kunal Kohli's next film, in which she features opposite Shahid Kapoor, and Madhur Bhandarkar's much-in-the-news "Heroine".

Following a news report that drew a comparison between the two movies, a furious Priyanka took to Twitter, and posted: "Woke up this morning to an amazing piece of fiction... a news story that says my role in Kunal's film is similar to that of 'Heroine'...What a fertile imagination!!! There was no verification made with anyone before they made this resounding conclusion."

While "Heroine", Bhandarkar's most ambitious project, takes a behind-the-scenes look at the life and times of a successful Bollywood actress, Kohli's untitled film will reportedly have Priyanka and Shahid play four sets of characters each.

One of those characters will be set in the 1960s, as suggested by an image where Priyanka was seen in a pink fish cut lehenga, a short blouse and Mumtaz-style draped dupatta, with a classic bouffant hairdo.

"Ours is a love story... where is the connect? What say @kunalkohli?" she added.

Kohli too gave his inputs to refute the news.

"Well said @priyankachopra, no one asked us anything,they just printed a baseless story. There's no similarity between the films," posted the filmmaker.

Priyanka, who was recently rumoured to be replacing Aishwarya Rai in "Heroine", says she doesn't like being drawn into controversies.

"I don't appreciate being used to create unwarranted controversy with baseless information... unacceptable!" added the 29-year-old.
