She is smart, glamorous and one of the most sought after actresses in Bollywood, but Priyanka Chopra says it was difficult for her to portray a simple, beautiful girl in forthcoming film “Pyaar Impossible” and still try to hold the interest of audiences.
“When you do characters like one in ‘Aitraaz’, ‘Fashion’ or ‘Kaminey’, there are certain peripheries. For example, Sweety in ‘Kaminey’ won’t be able to speak English or she won’t wear jeans and top. They are also difficult, but the boundaries help. When I am playing a simple beautiful looking girl, how do I get your interest?” Priyanka said.
“Heroines ought to look beautiful, it’s their work. We look pretty, we wear great clothes but that’s our job. But how do I make you feel for her? That’s why these films are more difficult,” Priyanka, who has teamed up with Uday Chopra in the film, said.
Written and produced by Uday, “Pyaar Impossible” is a romantic tale about a beauty and a geek. Directed by Jugal Hansraj, it shows how fate brings Uday and Priyanka come together and love blooms amidst all odds.
Talking about her character in “Pyaar Impossible”, Priyanka said: “I play Alisha who works in a software company. She has always been a popular girl, fun loving and one who loves life. But at a young age she has to take a lot of responsibilities and she finds it difficult to manage and her life becomes chaotic,” said Priyanka.
“Pyaar Impossible” is slated to release Jan 8.
The actress took three months before giving her final consent for the film.
“When I was offered the film, I was shooting for ‘Kaminey’ So I told them I will take some time to decide. It took me around three months to read the script, but when I read it, I felt I was reading a romantic book or a breezy novel and I immediately called Uday and gave my consent,” she added.
Priyanka was all praise for Uday and the way he has sketched the characters.
“Uday is a great human being and a very talented guy. The way he had written the story and sketched my character, they are very close to reality,” Priyanka said before leaving for New York.
She will stay there for two and a half months to complete Siddharth Anand’s “Anjana Anjani”, which also features Ranbir Kapoor.
“I am planning to enjoy the New Year’s eve in Times Square, but it’s so cold and there has been a blizzard too so I’m not sure whether I would be able to go out of my hotel or not,” said Priyanka.
Asked about her role in Farhan Akhtar’s “Don 2”, she said: “It’s coming by the end of next year. The only thing I can say now is that I have some superb actions in ‘Don 2’ and I am very excited about that.”
She has also signed on for Vishal Bharadwaj’s tentatively titled “7 Husbands”.
