Wasn’t Priyanka the first to get signed for the film?
Now that’s a surprising revelation PeeCee! One of the busiest actresses of B-Town, Priyanka Chopra has received Hollywood acclaim as well! Yes! Her American TV show Quantico has become so popular that what started as a nine episode stint got extended to 13 and now it’s 22! The actress’ show has been widely accepted and appreciated and this simply proves that she can accomplish anything! But yes, with great power comes great responsibility and with great acting talent comes great roles! Priyanka’s schedule has been so tight and it has been the same for a while now that she has had trouble signing new projects.
Well, with all the controversies revolving around her upcoming film, Bajirao Mastani, the actress also clarified saying that the film is an adaptation of a book written on Peshwa Bajirao. And while discussing all this with a leading daily, the actress also revealed that Priyanka faced major problems while shooting for the film and considered quitting midway! The actress was quoted saying, “I didn’t want to give up. No one gives up once you start working on a film. It was just the process of getting into the character that was difficult for me. It had nothing to do with Sanjay sir (Sanjay Leela Bhansali).” She also added, “Kashi’s character (her role in Bajirao Mastani) is also heartbreaking. It really affected me. The kind of resilience she had is not something I’m familiar with, or ever will be. It was very overwhelming. But I’m not a quitter.”
We’ve definitely seen the non quitter side of Priyanka and while the busy bee managed some time for promoting her period drama, Bajirao Mastani, we hope all goes well with the film!
