Entirely shot in Miami, Florida, "Dostana" comes as
a breather for the actress whose flagging career was given a new
lease of life with "Fashion" after a series of duds
- "Love Story 2050", "God Tussi Great Ho",
"Chamku" and "Drona".
"'Dostana' was like a vacation. It was so much fun. We were
in Miami for two months and I was so fresh and rested when I came
back. It was like a really relaxed outdoor and (I had a) great
time because everybody got along well with each other," Priyanka
Produced by Karan Johar's Dharma Productions and directed by
Tarun Mansukhani, the romantic comedy will release Nov 14.
Priyanka plays a fashion journalist who shares her apartment
with Abhishek and John. The two dupe her to rent her apartment
on the pretext of being a gay couple.
"John, Abhishek and I are best friends in the film who do
everything together. It's a romantic comedy and a fun film about
what happens in their lives," the actress said.
Asked if she had any apprehensions working with a debutant director,
specially after a string of flops this year, Priyanka said: "Tarun
is a fabulous friend of mine and an incredible director. When

"I am a kind of person who asks a lot of questions. I test
directors. I like asking and Tarun knew the answer to every question
I asked. He blew my mind with his confidence and the commitment
he had towards the film. By the end of the film, he's become a
really close friend of mine and I admire him as a filmmaker."
The former Miss World also says: "I definitely want to try
singing. I might start with, maybe, a song in one of my films
but I'm not sure when. But I definitely want to do it."
The actress said she admired the blogging rage among celebrities
like Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan and Ram Gopal Varma, but added
that she couldn't take to it due to lack of time.
"It's such a great way to get closer to your fans. But I
don't know how they find time to blog because I hardly sleep for
more than four hours. I really want to do it at some point because
Karan (Johar) was also telling me it's great... may be in a while
when my schedule eases a little bit.
