Bollywood babe Priyanka Chopra, who recently shot for a biopic on boxer Mary Kom, graced Dilip Kumar's autobiography launch at a suburban hotel where she expressed her desire to portray Saira Banu's role, if ever a biopic is made on thespian's life.
On being asked as to which actor best could play Dilip Kumar's role if a biopic is made on his life, she admitted, ''Yeh bahot bada sawal pooch liya aapne. Bahot saare aise actors hai jo Yusuf Sahab ki life portray kar payenge. (It is really a big question that you have asked. There are many actors in Bollywood who can portray Yusuf Khan's life.)''
However, the actress was quick to add, ''Agar biopic bane Dilip Sahab pe toh main Saira ma'am play karna chahungi. But Dilip Kumar kaun banenge. I don't think wo mera opinion rahega. (If a biopic is made on Dilip Kumar's life then I would want to play Saira Banu's role. But it won't be my opinion as to who will play Dilip Kumar.''
Meanwhile, Priyanka is currently busy shooting for Zoya Akhtar's DIL DHADAKNE DO in Barcelona along with Ranveer Singh, Anushka Sharma, Anil Kapoor, Farhan Akhtar and others.
