Why did Priyanka Chopra learn Telugu?

The Barfi! babe was spotted polishing her Telugu diction for Zanjeer. We wonder why the super-busy Chopra learning the South language so diligently…

Priyanka Chopra is the female Shahrukh Khan of Bollywood. The 31-year-old works really hard and tries to get as close to perfection as possible in whatever she chooses to take up.

After giving some fabulous performances through a range of characters she portrayed in movies like Fashion, Agneepath, Saat Khoon Maaf and Barfi!, Priyanka continues to surprise us with her incredible energy and her acting skills. She has also been shuttling between Indian and the US quite often this year for her music album. Recently, the talented actor was busy learning Telugu!

In fact, for her forthcoming movie Zanjeer co-starring Ram Charan Teja, the dedicated actor is learnt Telugu. We hear that Priyanka also shot for the Telugu version of the movie which will be titled Toofan. PeeCee used to come to the sets with three different scripts-Telugu, English and Hindi. The entire crew of Zanjeer was stunned by Priyanka’s dedication and determination. A little birdie chirped to us that the babe used to try her best to pronounce every word correctly. She gave it her best to understand every syllable and pronunciation accurately so as to look convincing and play her part with confidence.

Now that’s Priyanka for you! No wonder a certain Khan was smitten with Priyanka’s determination to excel. Take a bow lady!
