Sakshi has already been signed by producer Firoz Nadiadwala for a three-film deal. She will make her Bollywood debut opposite John Abraham in the next instalment of the Hera Pheri franchise. For the role of Priyanka Chopra in the film titled 67 Days Sakshi would have to go through rigorous training. (Also Read: Why Priyanka Chopra is Both Flattered and Disturbed by Planned Biopic)
"She will play Priyanka very closely studying her movies. Sakshi is not a major movie buff. But Aseem Merchant, who is making 67 Days, wants Sakshi to adopt Priyanka's body language and mannerisms," said a source.
"Priyanka tends to talk very rapidly, letting the sentences, words spill out in a tumble. Sakshi would be speaking like that. There will also be an attempt to recreate some of Priyanka's early songs and dances from Andaaz and Aitraaz," said the source.
On being contacted, Sakshi said: "I don't think I am allowed to talk about this. But yes, I am playing the part in the film that you mention. I guess they thought I was suitable for the part. As far as studying Priyanka goes, I haven't done much of that so far. I was never star-struck. But she is a good actress. Hopefully, I will play the part well."
