It was a 'dream come true' moment for Anupriya Goenka when she was finalised to play the supporting role in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmaavat. Anurpiya, also known as Priya is one such actress who will blow your mind away by her mere screen presence. She has appeared in big banner films like Tiger Zinda Hai and Padmaavat. She portrayed the character of Nurse Poorna in this Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif-starrer action drama. In Sanjay Leela Bhansali's epic-drama Padmaavat, she played the role of Maharani Naagmati, the first wife of Maharawal Ratan Singh, whose character was essayed by Shahid Kapoor. But her story goes far back than this. She rose to fame with a government commercial, Bharat Nirmaan, an Indian business plan for creating and augmenting basic rural infrastructure.

Speaking about working with Salman, Anupriya said, "Very very good. He is somebody who will just blow you by his personality. And luckily for me, my character was such that I had to be in awe of him, you know. Basically, he has a character where you feel as if someone is there to take care of you or you can rely on him. And he has that personality. If he's around you, you are like yeah, things will be taken care of. There is someone you can depend upon."
About director Ali Abbas Zafar, she said, "Ali is a great director. He knows how to manage his characters and in that kind of a set-up also (Tiger Zinda Hai is a hard-core action drama), he gave each one of us some things to play with."
