Sharing the glimpse of of her characters from these three films, Priyanka Chopra wrote, "In my 20 years in the entertainment industry, I’ve had the privilege to play some distinct, memorable characters crafted by the finest directors in the business. Today, I’m talking about 3 such amazing, complex characters I’ve played at different points in time, with depth, conflict and resilience & working with 3 phenomenal directors who I believe are an institution in themselves. Kashibai (Bajirao Mastani) by Sanjay Leela Bhansali Susanna (7 Khoon Maaf) by Vishal Bhardwaj Jhilmil (Barfi) by Anurag Basu Bold, loyal & fierce...Kashibai was one of the most endearing characters I've played.
Thank you Sanjay sir and everyone on the team for bringing Kashi into my life. Her grace under fire is still so inspiring to me."
She added, "7 Khoon Maaf...a dark comedy with a woman protagonist who is looking for true love and tries to find it 7 times, but in the end, is still lonely.
Thank you Vishal Sir for giving me Susanna - complex, immersive, impulsive yet vulnerable. To play Jhilmil, a girl with Autism was a serious responsibility. But under Anurag sirs tutelage, she turned out to be honest, raw and brought me so much joy. #BajiraoMastani: @ranveersingh @deepikapadukone @azmitanve @bhansaliproductions #PrakashKapadia #KishoreLulla @erosnow #7KhoonMaaf: @vishalrbhardwaj #IrrfanKhan @neilnitinmukesh #NasseruddinShah @thejohnabraham
