Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut is rumoured to have replaced Priyanka Chopra in Reema Kagti's "Mr Chalu".

Earlier, it was reported that Priyanka was confirmed to star in the film, but now the buzz is that the actress has opted out of the project.

However, before PeeCee, Kangana was offered the role but the actress walked out of it and then it went to the "Quantico" actress. As per the latest news, Kangana is thinking about reconsidering the offer and thus, will be replacing Priyanka, according to Bollywood Life.

There is no confirmation to the reports yet, but if Kangana took over the film again, she will be paired opposite Fawad Khan.

Another buzz was that Saif Ali Khan was interested in playing the lead role, but director Reema signed the Pakistani heartthrob.

Meanwhile, Kangana is shooting for Vishal Bharadwaj's "Rangoon" starring opposite Saif and Shahid Kapoor.

On the other hand, Priyanka is too busy with her ongoing projects and may be this is the reason why the actress opted out of the film "Mr Chalu".

Priyanka is currently shooting for her American TV series "Quantico", she will soon appear on big screen with two Bollywood films – "Bajirao Mastani" and "Jai Gangaajal".

Sanjay Leela Bhansali's "Bajirao Mastani" will be released on 18 December which features PeeCee, Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh in pivotal roles.
