MUMBAI: Priyanka Chopra has decided to rectify all the mistakes of the previous year. Ever since the Miss World beauty pageant winner joined movies, she has never had such a series of bad films in one calendar year. Flops like Pyar Impossible and What’s Your Rashee have marred the perfect score that Priyanka has enjoyed at the box office, but now all corrective measures are in place.
Speaking to Businessofcinema.com, Chopra says, "It is not always that we make the right judgment where a film is concerned. Sometimes the script does not get translated well into a film and sometimes we believe more in the film maker."
Priyanka has been out of Mumbai for the better part of the last six months. Since November, the actress has been first in Bangkok and then America for the shooting of Siddharth Anand’s Anjaana Anjaani. Thereafter Priyanka has been in Kashmir and now Coorg shooting for Vishal Bharadwaj’s Saat Khoon Maaf, which is being produced by UTV Motion Pictures. Both these films have author backed roles and Chopra is making sure that there are no unpleasant surprises at the box office, this time round.
However, in the Hindi film industry, it’s all about making your presence felt. And with the stiff competition between Kareena Kapoor, Katrina Kaif and Priyanka Chopra, the former beauty queen must have realized that she has been missing in action at all the award ceremonies that have been held this year. Although she was approached to do both the shows of IPL, the IPL Awards show and the IPL closing ceremony, Chopra could only spare the time for one.
The actress’ father Dr. Ashok Chopra adds, "She had only come in for a day. And post the performance, she was eagerly waiting for our feedback. When we gave her the thumbs up, Priyanka was hugely relieved. But that’s the way she is. Till date she seeks our approval."
Priyanka performed to the female version of the hit song from Kaminey, which was specially recorded for her. And now in Coorg, away from all communication, the National Award actress can concentrate on creating her best work for one of her favorite directors.
