Priyanka Chopra shoots with autistic kids for Barfee

Apparently Priyanka Chopra has developed a liking for doing meaty roles which are beyond looking pretty. The actress, who is busy shooting for Anurag Basu’s Barfee, wherein plays an autistic person, recently shot with autistic children for the film. Priyanka tweeted “So..Shooting ‘Barfee’ today..had to shoot with some autistic kids as I’m autistic in the film..I can’t even begin to tell you how special they are. So loving..kind..and just simple..all they need is love and patience..I truly believe special children are closest to God.”  Barfee is a romantic murder mystery that stars Priyanka Chopra and Ileana D’Cruz, both of whom are vying for Ranbir Kapoor’s attention. While Priyanka plays an autistic, Ranbir Kapoor plays the role of happy-go-lucky deaf-mute character called Murphy.
