Mumbai, Oct 4 (IANS) Madhur Bhandarkar is very happy with Priyanka Chopra's work in "Fashion", which is due for release Oct 29. She has "connected with emotions" in the film, he says complimenting her.
In the film, Priyanka plays a Chandigarh girl aspiring to be a super-model.
"Priyanka has connected with emotions in 'Fashion', that she has never shown on screen before. And she's a perfectionist," Madhur told IANS.
Madhur is also a much-relieved man today. His worry that the release of "Fashion" could be delayed due to hitches have been put at rest.
First Priyanka had a very bad throat because of which she had to cancel the dubbing of "Fashion". And then the film industry workers' strike put further time pressure on Madhur's precious film.
"Our release is Oct 29, that's Wednesday, so we got a long Diwali weekend for our film. There's no way we could cancel. However, the workers' strike brought everything to a grinding halt," he said.
The strike was called off Friday after a meeting between the workers and the producers' association.
Priyanka's bad throat started with all the screaming she did for Vishal Bhardwaj's "Kaminey"
