Priyanka Chopra on her two releases this month
By Subhash K. Jha, Bollywood Hungama News Network
In her two releases in August (God Tussi Great Ho and Chamku within two weeks), Priyanka continues her quest to look physically different for each part.
"Not that I planned for God Tussi Great Ho and Chamku to come one after another. But fortunately I look very different in both. In God Tussi Great Ho, I'm dressed in shorts and jeans. I wear a nose-ring throughout the film…a very hip and 'today' thing to do. In Chamku, I'm a school teacher. So I dress in a saree."
She is all gooey-eyed about her Chamku co-star. "Bobby and I go back a long way. He and Sunnyji are a part of my initial phase in Mumbai. Sunnyji did my first film The Hero with me when I was a nobody. He didn't have to. But he encouraged a newcomer. I'll never forget that. As for Bobby, we've done two films together before. I'd do anything for the Deols' banner, Vijeta Films, anytime."
Is that why she agreed to be in Chamku although it's an out-and-out Bobby vehicle? "It's Bobby's film. But I've a substantial role. I am the shoulder he cries on. Sometimes it's good to be a shoulder instead of shouldering a film," she chuckles.
As for Salman, "We really had a good time shooting God Tussi Great Ho. That sense of enjoyment shows up on screen."
