The "Gunday" actress' jam packed schedule is said to have put a temporary delay in the Bhandarkar's film "Madamji," where the actress would be seen as a politician.
Chopra is presently under hard core training for her boxer's role in the Mary Kom Biopic. After wrapping up the Omung Kumar directorial, she will proceed with Zoya Akhtar's multi starrer "Dil Dhadakne Do" to which she has already committed.
In duration, the actress will need a total of seven months to complete the two films before moving to "Madamji."
Meanwhile, the "Heroine" director is expected to use the time to finish off his another project titled "Calendar Girls."
"Priyanka and I are working on the schedule and other modalities for "Madamji." But yes, I may make "Calendar Girls" first," confirmed the director to the tabloid.
The filmmaker recently picked Chopra for the role of actress-turned-politician over contemporaries Deepika Padukone and Vidya Balan.
The actress is said to be quite impressed with the strong character offered to her and wants to render full concentration in executing her role to pitch perfection.
Meanwhile, it has also been rumoured that Chopra's political role is modelled on the lines of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa.
Previously, Katrina Kaif had essayed the role of a political figure in Prakash Jha's "Rajneeti" (2010), where she is said to have emulated Congress President Sonia Gandhi's mannerisms.
Meanwhile, Chopra in playing a politician on screen, will join the likes of Sonam Kapoor and Kangana Ranut, who will be seen playing the same in their upcoming films, "Battle for Bittora" adaptation and "Revolver Rani" respectively.
