After doing intense roles in her past few films, PC will play an actor with a positive outlook in Kunal Kohli’s Teri Meri Kahani
Priyanka Chopra is all smiles nowadays – especially when she is facing the camera for Kunal Kohli’s film, Teri Meri Kahani. But it doesn’t have much to do with Shahid Kapoor being her co-star. The fact of the matter is that she is playing a happy character in TMK. Last we heard about Kunal’s film was how the two lead actors were cosying up during an outdoor shoot on the outskirts of London. There was also the buzz that her character – of an actress from the 1960s – is similar to Kareena Kapoor’s despondent one in Madhur Bhandarkar’s Heroine and Vidya Balan’s in Milan Luthria’s The Dirty Picture. Kunal said recently in an interview that his film does not focus on the sadder aspects of tinseltown. One of the rumours doing the rounds is that Priyanka agreed to do the film as she was not chosen for Heroine, but we don’t agree. Piggy Chops has been doing intense films for the past few years – 7 Khoon Maaf, Agneepath, Don 2 and the yet-to-release Barfee. Such emotionally draining work can get to the well-being of the best of actors. The last time she made us laugh (intentionally) was way back in 2008 in Dostana. Teri Meri Kahani is a good break for PC from these dramas, don’t you think? Kunal has said that he wanted her to stay positive and feel good during the shoot to get into the essence of her character, and that’s exactly what she did. And if you are getting a chance to be happy, visit foreign lands, spend time with a ‘very good friend’ and get paid for doing so, would you pass it up?
