"It's a very entertaining and wicked movie. It's amusing
and not serious. It's a satire which makes it very interesting,"
said the mainstream actress who proved her versatility as a
highly ambitious model in issue-based movie "Fashion"
and won the National Award for her performance. She was a delight
to watch in "Kaminey".
"7 Saat Khoon Maaf" is slated for a Feb 18 release.
This is Priyanka's second film with Bharadwaj after the 2009
release "Kaminey" and the actress has no qualms in
saying that the director knows how to exploit her potential.
"Vishal has always brought out the best in me and this
time too he has given me one of the most challenging parts an
actor can get. I'm really grateful that he thought I was capable
enough to do it and pull it off," she said.
"There is a lot of responsibility on you when you work
with a director like him. He is the kind of person who gives
you the scene and says 'okay, do it now'. No instructions. After
I give my first take, he tweeks it a little bit. So the responsibility
as an actor is completely on you, which is very scary,"
The film's promos hit the screens some time back and have created
enough curiosity thanks to Priyanka's sinister look and menacing
The actress says the role demanded a lot from her.
"It was emotionally and physically very draining and I
used to take out all my tantrums on Vishal. We used to fight
like anything. He used to yell at me and I used to yell back.
But then we used to make up," she said.
The former Miss World jumped on to the Bollywood bandwagon
in 2003 with "The Hero: Love Story Of A Spy". In eight
years, she has done commercial as well as author-backed sensitive
She is happy that people offer her powerful roles.
"The films that come to me are like that. Nobody offers
me films where I don't have a good role. All my films have very
power-packed parts for me. I'm grateful that people say that
I'm the only one who can do those roles. It's never been a conscious
effort, but obviously if I'm doing a film, I would want a good
role in it," specified Priyanka.
The actress will be seen in a different avatar in Anurag Basu's
"Barfee", which also stars Ranbir Kapoor.
