80 years after legendary British actor Lupino Lane created a (yet unbroken) record for a male actor playing 24 roles in one single film, ONLY ME (1929), Priyanka Chopra is all set to emulate a similar feat when it comes to female actors. In WHAT'S YOUR RAASHEE? (2009), she plays 12 different roles and the film has already been referred to Guinness Book of World Records for further consideration.

"I was aware about Sanjeev Kumar playing nine roles in NAYA DIN NAYI RAAT and Kamal Hassan being seen 10 times over in DASAVATHARAM. However, even I got to know about Lupino Lane's achievement very recently. Hats off to him to have done that eight decades back and that too in a silent film", says Priyanka Chopra who is the first female actor though to have come this close.

CHECK OUT: WYR is my toughest film

While there have been quite a few double role performances by leading ladies in the past, there aren't many movies where a Bollywood actress has played even a triple role, let aside coming close to enacting a dozen odd characters in a single outing.

"Yes, I have been told about this. I guess not just in India but even in world cinema, no woman has ever played 12 different characters in the film. In fact the producers of WHAT'S YOUR RAASHEE? have got in touch with Guinness book of World Records and we are awaiting their response", says Priyanka who continues to keep her excitement level in check in spite of a world record pretty much in the sight.

With music by Sohail Sen, WHAT'S YOUR RAASHEE? is all set for a 25th September worldwide release.
