Says a source, “She has shown interest in the three films, but what's left to be seen is which one she will take up first since her date diary is packed for 'Quantico'.”

The source adds, "The episode count is likely to be reviewed. If a decision is taken to add a few more episodes, the actress will have to juggle her Bollywood commitments in the first quarter of 2016 and whenever possible, keep flying back and forth between Montreal and Mumbai."

Priyanka is slated to arrive in the city by Saturday following a break in 'Quantico' schedule from today due to Thanksgiving Day, which is celebrated with great fanfare across the US. The festivities continue till the weekend. During her short stay in Mumbai, PeeCee is also likely to greenlight one of the three films that will roll first.
