Priyanka Chopra on marriage and men!

16 05 2010

Mumbai: First, she seemed like going around with Hurman Baweja, then came the ever-charming Shahid Kapoor and then there was a rumored liaison with the dashing international star Gerard Butler but truth about Piggy Chops’ love-life has remained under wraps. However, when it comes to the concept of marriage, Bollywood glam queen Priyanka Chopra gets idealistic and strongly believes that marriage is for keeps.

She might have been linked with a lot of men, but never has she spilled beans over her marriage plans, or even shared with her fans what kind of relationship she would like to be in. Looking at her lifestyle, some might get an impression that she is rather cold about relationships. However, this otherwise feral actress recently cleared her views about marriage saying that in her heart she is a one-man woman and is waiting for that one guy who will sweep her off her feet!

While talking to a news daily, she let her guard down and said, “I strongly believe in the institution of marriage and hold immense respect for it. I am not at all in favour of polygamy.”

Coincidentally, polygamy is the theme of her next movie ‘Saat Khoon Maaf’ where she gets to play the wife of seven men, whom she murders one by one.

Saat Khoon Maaf will be unique:Priyanka Chopra

7 04 2010

Priyanka Chopra has just started shooting for director Vishal Bharadwaj’s Saat Khoon Maaf and says it will be a different movie.

“It’s too early to speak about Saat Khoon Maaf but it will be a very unique film for sure,” Priyanka told reporters on Tuesday after launching the denim brand Levi’s Change your World campaign.

Commenting upon the reports that she rejected Hollywood offers for Saat Khoon Maaf, she said: “I can associate only with the film I am committed to and I was committed to Vishal Bharadwaj….”

Priyanka was more than happy to collaborate with Bharadwaj again after Kaminey.

“To work with Vishal again is a great opportunity because I think he is one of India’s most celebrated filmmakers. He has shown confidence in me, so I feel a bit nervous and anxious as well.”

Based on Ruskin Bond’s story Susanna’s Seven Husbands about a femme fatale who bumps off her seven spouses, Saat Khoon Maaf also stars Naseeruddin Shah, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Irrfan Khan.

Priyanka, who replaces actor Akshay Kumar as a brand ambassador of Levi’s and even as the host of the reality show Fear Factor – Khatron Ke Khiladi, describes it as a sheer coincidence.

“I would say it’s a complete coincidence,” said Priyanka who is looking forward to hosting the adventure reality show. “I am very excited about ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’ because it’s a perfect show for me. I have seen its last two seasons. It was one of my favourite shows. It would be so much fun to actually host the show.”

Priyanka to endorse Kashmir??

2 04 2010

Priyanka on sets of SKM in Kashmir:BAK

If Amitabh Bachchan can be the brand ambassador for Gujarat, Priyanka Chopra seems more than willing to play an equivalent role for Kashmir. And the buzz is that she is being actively considered by the State government’s Tourism department for just that.

After a week-long shooting schedule in the Valley, Priyanka is clearly enamoured by all things Kashmiri. In fact so idyllic was the trip that she is determined to return at the earliest — this time, with her entire family.

“I was in Kashmir two years ago for work and even this time, it’s for work. But I’m coming back here very soon with all my loved ones for a holiday. I was working non-stop for the film and got no time to just relax and soak in the clean air and natural beauty of the Valley. I want to come back just for that, and not for work.”

In fact, Priyanka wants to publicly urge other film units in Bollywood to shoot in the Valley. “It’s absolutely safe here. The Tourism department and security personnel were impeccable in their hospitality. Not for a second did I feel there was any danger. I must say I’m leaving Kashmir very reluctantly and can’t wait to be back,” said Priyanka on Tuesday evening, while packing her bags.

Another factor that made her visit to the Valley so memorable was the poetry. Playing a shy Muslim mohtarrma in Vishal Bharadwaj’s film, she was wooed earnestly by Irrfan Khan with poetry written by Gulzar. Sighs the actress. “I’ve always been Gulzar saab’s biggest fan and it has been my sincere wish to work with him. This is the closest I’ve come to his creativity. Actually, it couldn’t get any better … the most beautiful place on earth and Gulzar saab’s poetry.” Indeed.

Priyanka fights allergies and moves on!

30 03 2010

Recently, while shooting for a reality show, Priyanka Chopra couldn’t stop sneezing and that’s when she discovered that she was allergic to dust. Despite being aware of her allergy, the actress continued to shoot for Vishal Bhardwaj’s Saat Khoon Maaf in one of the dustiest locations in Kashmir.

A source reveals, “On Friday morning, the team was shooting in an extremely dusty site in Kashmir, which was making Priyanka uncomfortable. But like a thorough professional, she continued to shoot without complaining about it.”

Fortunately for Priyanka, her earlier sneezing experience has made her a veteran at handling the ‘tickly’ situation. The source continues, “During the break, Priyanka started sneezing. Since she has been through this earlier, she immediately took the necessary precautions. But she didn’t mention her allergy to the  director. People thought that it was the cold Kashmir weather, which was making her sneeze.”

Once a sneezer, always a sneezer. “After pack-up, Priyanka headed to her hotel where she got some respite, but the sneezing didn’t stop completely. The next morning, her nose betrayed her again but she was fine after she took care of it,” adds the source.

Priyanka didn’t really think it was a big deal and says, “I believe you gotta do, what you gotta do for your  film.”

My Word: GO PRANKS!! 🙂

Priyanka on sets of Saat Khoon Maaf

Priyanka Chopra, the lead actress of Saat Khoon Maaf, seems more than ready to play yet another challenging role. This time she plays a woman who kills her seven husbands. Dressed as a Muslim woman complete with a salwar kameez and burqa, Priyanka was seen shooting with Irrfan Khan, who plays one of her husbands, in the film. The shooting is on at Srinagar’s famous Shalimar Gardens which was built by Mughal Emperor Jahangir for his wife Nur Jahan in 1619.

The stars were shooting amidst tight security and excited tourists were asked to keep off some areas of the garden where the shooting was on in full swing. Of course, they were a tad disappointed on being told not to click photographs of the film unit.

The unit of Saat Khoon Maaf is expected to travel all over the country. Besides Irrfan, Naseeruddin Shah, his son Vivaan Shah, John Abraham, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Anu Kapoor and an undisclosed Russian actor play Priyanka’s husbands. The cast looks interesting enough, but the plot even more!
