Award season is soon to begin and nominations have been making the rounds. Priyanka Chopra, for whom 2009 was a mixed bag with KAMINEY hitting the bull's eye while WHAT'S YOUR RAASHEE? failing to do so, is now looking forward to beginning the new year with PYAAR IMPOSSIBLE.
She is happy though that KAMINEY didn't just manage to fetch her good recognition but also quite a few nominations. "Yes, for KAMINEY, I can see my name in nominations for year end awards. It does feel good", she says. But wouldn't she have preferred that for WHAT'S YOUR RAASHEE? After all that was the film where she enjoyed an author backed part by playing as many as 12 characters. Her being a central protagonist in the film deserved her a few nominations at least, isn't it?
"One can't be thinking too much about such matters actually", reflects Priyanka, "Majority of award functions anyways go for popularity votes so it makes sense when KAMINEY comes on the forefront because it did well at the box office."
She goes on to add that even though she had a relatively smaller part to play in KAMINEY, it wasn't any less difficult to do. "KAMINEY was a difficult film for me to do as an actor. Getting the language and mannerisms right was a challenge in itself. I also had to adapt myself to the entire middle class surrounding and the Maharashtrian culture. It was in a completely different space from what I had done in my earlier two releases - FASHION and DOSTANA", she explains.
