I was called silly for doing 'Fashion', Priyanka Chopra


Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra who is currently shooting for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Bajirao Mastani’ said that she was advised against doing Madhur Bhandarkar’s film ‘Fashion’ and was being called ‘silly’ for appearing in it.

“I was called silly for doing Fashion.as if it would harm my career! Hah!Look at us now!This movement will soon be a revolution!”Priyanka revealed on Twitter.

The film was applauded by audience as well as critics, and Priyanka shut the big mouths by winning the National Film Award for Best Actress for her excellent performance as a troubled model in the movie. The 2008 film ‘Fashion’ was a significant turning point in her career.

Priyanka  has been keeping busy shuttling between continents for her assignments which include her American teleseries ‘Quantico’, Sanjay Leela Bhansali's ‘Bajirao Mastani’ and promotions of her upcoming film ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’.

She was recalling the numerous films written for a female lead character like Anushka Sharma's ‘NH 10’ and Deepika Padukone's ‘Piku’, both of which have fared better than most other films this year. After catching up the movie in between her hectic schedule, she was in praise of Anushka and Darshan Kumaar who was Priyanka’s co-star in the biopic ‘Mary Kom’.

“Der aaye durust aaye!(Better late than never) Ended up catching NH10 today.Im so proud of u @AnushkaSharma .as a friend,woman,actor and Producer!What a powerful film,” she tweeted and for her ‘Mary Com’ co-star who played a negative role in the film, she wrote, “I can’t believe @darshankumaar how nuanced u were! And to do Mary Kom and NH10 simultaneously..! Fab!! Congrats to the team.”

Priyanka also expressed her desire to watch Deepika’s movie, “Can’t wait to watch #Piku n #TanuWedsManu ! #GirlPower always!” She then took her leave to get back to her shooting for ‘Bajirao Mastani’ with another tweet, “Ok break over!! Off do doing what I do best.. #KashiBai reporting back to set! Laterssss!”

In the Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial, Priyanka plays the role of Peshwa Bajirao’s first wife Kashi Bai, while Deepika plays the second wife of the Peshwa. Bajirao’s part is enacted by Deepika’s boyfriend Ranveer Singh.
