Priyanka Chopra: Playing 12 roles is no ego boost

If one goes down the memory lane, one can comfortably say that with WHAT'S YOUR RAASHEE?, Priyanka Chopra may well be boasting of the biggest ever film written for a woman protagonist in the history of Indian cinema.

"Arrey no, please don't make it all sound so big and heavy", protests Priyanka, "Let's just look at it as an entertaining movie and leave it there. Words like 'greatest' and 'biggest' don't hold much relevance if one doesn't justify each of the characters. You may win when it comes to count but then you must also be able to put some weight in your performance."

Still, it must be some kind of ego boost that she must have got once Ashutosh Gowariker, director and co-producer of the film (along with UTV Motion Pictures), approached her for the role?

"Not at all. In fact I was quite nervous that how would I manage to pull it off", confesses Priyanka, "A role may look fantastic on paper and you too may feel confident of pulling it off. Still, you have to be extra careful to make sure that audiences too like what you bring to the table."

This was the reason why she stayed away from all the limelight while shooting for WHAT'S YOUR RAASHEE? and her look for each of the characters too was kept under the wraps.

"You end up picking on all the flattery around you but none of that helps in what comes across on screen", she smiles, "WHAT'S YOUR RAASHEE? has such a fantastic script written with each of the 12 roles boasting of such well etched characterization. I had to now go all out in following Ashutosh's vision. With the coming together of a great production house, an intelligent director, a fantastic co-star and some melodious music, it all seems to have summed up well. Now that the mathematics part has gone well, it is time to see how audiences react to our effort."

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