Priyanka Chopra has been making headlines with her tattoo, relationship status, her singing ambitions and her incredible performance in Barfi. The actress and now, singer, has joined the cast of Gunday as the leading lady and will play a pivotal role in the film that stars Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor.

Gunday is being directed by Ali Abbas Zafar who had earlier directed Mere Brother ki Dulhan for Yash Raj Films.

Gunday's story is set amidst the most turbulent times in the history of Kolkata, then Calcutta, from 1971 to 1988.

Bikram and Bala rose from being small time wagon breakers and coal thieves to becoming the biggest and most powerful black marketing mafia-men. A rare combination of vigour and wit, the two were inseparable and the city of Calcutta swore by their friendship.

As their notoriety became the stuff that legends are made of, people started calling these young rebels "gunday" . Ranveer and Arjun both started their film careers with YRF films - Band, Baaja, Baraat and Ishaqzaade respectively. Priyanka has worked with Uday Chopra in the unsuccessful Pyaar Impossible earlier on.
