My next character will surely make an impact: Priyanka Chopra


By Joginder Tuteja

Mumbai, May 9 (IANS) Priyanka Chopra is all excited about her role in director Vishal Bhardwaj's new movie "Kaminey" and says the character will "definitely make an impact amongst audiences".

"I do hope that I have been able to do justice to Vishal's vision for this wonderful character that he has created. You don't get to work in a fantastic movie like 'Kaminey' and play someone like Sweety (the name of her character) every day," said Priyanka, who donned an altogether new look for the film.

"I am confident that my character of Sweety will definitely make an impact amongst the audiences. You can't expect anything less from Vishal. This character is so well written that it is bound to create an impact."

Earlier, the film was expected to release on June 5. But due to the standoff between the producers and multiplexes, "Kaminey" is expected to be pushed forward by at least a month.

Asked whether it was a conscious decision on her part to mix glamorous roles (as seen in "Dostana" and "Fashion") with a real look, Priyanka said: "Well, yes, it was a conscious decision for sure. I am mixing it up and 'What's your Rashee', which would come next, would see me in a completely different light as well."

Just like "Kaminey", "What's Your Rashee" is being produced by UTV Motion Pictures (though in collaboration with Ashutosh Gowariker Productions). The film was earlier slated for a September release but it has to be seen whether the delayed release of "Kaminey" has any bearing on "What's Your Rashee".

"Kaminey" also features Shahid Kapoor in a double role and Amol Gupte (writer of "Taare Zameen Par") as a villain.
