Ra. One makers quash rumours around Priyanka playing a transvestite

There have been rumours and there will be rumours. But the strangest of them all is the one which is currently surrounding Shah Rukh Khan‘s Ra.One that is otherwise making news for all the right reasons. That’s because it has been allegedly reported on a leading international website that Priyanka Chopra, who would be seen in a cameo in the sci-fi thriller, is playing a transvestite here.

“It was shocking to see something like this being reported and that too on an international website of high repute. How silly can it be? Seems like someone out there is trying to harm the film in whatever ways possible and spreading such rumours”, says a source who was first to notice this at

Though Priyanka Chopra has played variety of roles in her career so far, including a serial husband killer in 7 Khoon Maaf, enacting the role of a transvestite was taking things a little too far and also being highly imaginative, though in a negative way. Naturally, Anubhav Sinha, the film’s director, isn’t wee bit pleased and feels that someone out there is trying to create a negative word around the film.

“On these specific websites anyone can go and post anything as per their will. When they don’t find the right information, they turn malicious and start spreading rumours. The same holds true when it comes to Priyanka’s role in the film as well. Since her cameo is a closely guarded secret, some desperate soul may have just turned mischievous and updated this on the site. That’s sad because by no stretch of imagination can you actually have Priyanka get into a role like this”, says Anubhav.

Now that should hopefully settle the rumour before it takes gigantic proportions.
