Priyanka's overworked & underpaid
In Priyanka Chopra’s own words, she is overworked and
The actress who has three releases back-to-back-Vishal Bhardwaj’s Kaminey, Ashutosh Gowariker’s What’s Your Rashee? and Jugal Hansraj’s Pyaar Impossible is fashionably lean, but her health record sucks.
Though PC is on a high — having bagged ten awards in six months, she is also under strict diet restrictions from her mother, Dr Madhu Chopra. “I can’t eat anything except home-cooked meals,’’ says the actress who even carries her diet food to the five-star hotels she frequents, and seeks special permission to be allowed to eat her ‘MSM’ (mom-supervised meal.)
“My immune system has just gone a bit haywire,’’ she confesses. And, how did this happen? Well, Priyanka is playing 12 characters in What’s Your Rashee? and she was completely swamped with the amount of work she had put into these characters.
The actress has even studied that with the exception of one Hindi film actor in the silent era in 1920, who has played 16 characters — “then men also played women’s parts” — no other actor in world cinema has attempted 12 roles, she says.
Unlike Kamal Haasan in Dashaavatar (2008), where the actor did 10 roles or Sanjeev Kumar’s nine-role-epic Naya Din Nayi Raat (1974); Priyanka doesn’t even have prosthetics or any artificial aid to help her bring changes in the various characters.
“The only change—for the hip girl from Nairobi or the simple one from a village in Oonjha is a walk, a voice note or a subtle difference in the make-up,’’ she says.
While all of this is bound to look great on screen, shooting for it has proved very hard for the award-winner.
“I’m going to take sleeping pills and wake up after three days,’’ she confesses because her nerves are so fraught with the worry and the tension of the WYR shoot.
She is of course hoping that when the film releases, she wins accolades for it. “That will truly be my reward,’’ she smiles. “Believe me, I have put in my sweat, tears and blood into this film
. It is the most difficult film in my career. No wonder my system packed up,’’ she adds.
