Priyanka has no time for Mani Ratnam

Mani Ratnam may be on the wishlist of several B-Town stars. But busy actress Priyanka Chopra has no time for him.

Busy gal
The actress has been shooting round-the-clock for two films Karan Johar's Agneepath and Anurag Basu's

Going Tamil
Apparently, the Raavan director plans to cast her in Veerudu, a Tamil period flick.
A source confirms that Mani's people want to meet PC, but she's unable to commit because of time constraints.
Doing justice
The source offers details, "Ratnam's period film is set in 1500 BC and he feels that the Saat Khoon Maaf actress would be able to do justice to the character."

A source close to Priyanka confirms that she's quite kicked about the offer. "She plans to meet to him personally as soon as possible. This would be her first Tamil film, and it's believed to have a huge budget allocated to build huge sets and also use some exciting SFX."

The project will also feature south actors Vijay, Mahesh Babu and Arya and Anushka Shetty.
Hope it is not the fate of Ratnam's last offering Raavan that is making PC not find time for the veteran director.

The film is based on a Tamil novel Ponniyin Selvan and tells the story of the courageous warrior Vallavarayan Vandiyatheyan and King Aditha Karikalan which will be played by Vijay and Mahesh Babu. Anushka will play Vijay and Mahesh Babu's younger sister.
