Bollywood’s favourite desi girl, Priyanka Chopra is an actress par excellence and a rare talent. Having already made her mark in Hindi cinema, the actress is now an innate part of Hollywood and is currently filming multiple projects, including the next instalment in the Matrix series.
The actress recently celebrated 20 years in the industry and shared a video on Instagram reminiscing about her movies – Bajirao Mastani, 7 Khoon Maaf and Barfi.
“#20in2020 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,” she wrote in the caption.
“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 said about her intense role in Bajirao Mastani.
“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,” she said about, perhaps, her darkest role till date. Not many actresses would have agreed to play Susanna but Priyanka Chopra isn’t one to run from a challenge.
“To play Jhilmil, a girl with autism was a serious responsibility. But under Anurag Sir’s tutelage, she turned out to be honest, raw and brought me so much joy,” she said about her role in Barfi.
