After signing films like Farhan Akhtar’s Don remake and Rakesh Roshan’s Krrish, Priyanka Chopra is the current Bollywood sensation.
The actress will next be seen in Barsaat, with Bobby Deol and Bipasha Basu.
Priyanka spoke to Chief Correspondent Syed Firdaus Ashraf about the film, her career and the reported rivalry with Bipasha Basu. Excerpts:
Suniel Darshanji, the director of the film, was inspired to do this story after he read an article in a magazine. The gist of the story is how people in Punjab abandon their wives for a ‘better future’ in Western countries, and never come back. But this is not true in totality as some of them do come back.
This story is about a woman who is unsure whether her husband will return. My name is Kajol in the film. She’s a small-town girl. I feel every woman will be able to relate to this character.
