Gurinder Chadha told PTI that she will soon be visiting America and will discuss her next venture with Priyanka Chopra.
"I will be going to America soon, so I will be meeting her and will talk about the idea that I have," PTI quoted Gurinder Chadha as saying.
"She has been producing films and I hope it is international (the one that we do together). I can't think of doing India-centric film alone as I am half British and Indian," she added.
Gurinder Chadha is currently in India to promote her film Partition: 1947, starring Huma Qureshi, Hugh Bonneville, Gillian Anderson, late actor Om Puri, Manish Dayal and Michael Gambon. The film will release in India on August 18.

She is currently shooting for her next Hollywood film A Kid Like Jake. Priyanka Chopra will also star in Todd Strauss-Schulson's romantic comedy Isn't It Romantic.
Back home, Priyanka Chopra will reportedly feature in the biopic of late astronaut Kalpana Chawla. She has also signed up for Sanjay Leela Bhansali film, according to some reports.
