For her next Hollywood release, actress Priyanka Chopra takes on a much lighter role as a yoga ambassador in the romantic comedy Isn’t It Romantic (2019) directed by Todd Strauss-Schulson.
Starring Rebel Wilson, Liam Hemsworth, Chopra and Adam DeVine, the film features Wilson as a cynical New York professional who hates rom-coms. After an altercation with a robber leaves her unconscious, she wakes up in a romantic comedy as a leading lady with a handsome leading man Blake (Liam Hemsworth).
It soon turns into a love quandrangle with her best friend Josh (Adam DeVine) who has fallen for Chopra’s Isabella, a yoga ambassador.
The first look of the film was revealed by American magazine Entertainment Weekly. The romantic comedy is much different than those that preceded it. “I don’t think there’s been a rom-com where there’s a plus-size girl as the lead. They’re normally cast as the sassy friend or the sidekick,” Wilson told the magazine.
Additionally, this unique world of the rom-com that Natalie finds herself in prohibits any swearing or nudity. It’s all censored in the film. Isn’t It Romantic is due to be released on 14 February 2019, Valentine’s Day.
Chopra is currently shooting for her next Hindi film, The Sky Is Pink (2019), with Farhan Akhtar and Zaira Wasim. Based on a true story, the film is directed by Shonali Bose.
