Recently Priyanka Chopra stated that her character of Sweety in KAMINEY is so well written that it would surely make an impact. Well, considering the fact that director Vishal Bhardwaj has been known for presenting his female leads in a distinct avatar, one tends to agree with Priyanka. After all he is the same man who succeeded in giving a new image to his female actors like Tabu , Kareena Kapoor and Shabana Azmi after working with them in MAQBOOL, OMKARA and MAKDEE respectively. Hence, there is no reason why it should be any different in the film maker's fourth outing KAMINEY.
''I do hope that I have been able to do justice to Vishal's vision for this wonderful character that he has created. You don't get to work in a fantastic movie like KAMINEY and play someone like Sweety (the name of her character) every day'', says Priyanka who has been patiently waiting for the film's arrival in theaters.
CHECK OUT: KAMINEY Kaun? Shahid or Amole
Earlier release plan for the film was 5th June. However, in the current situation when there is still no clarity around the release dates of the films, courtesy the stand off between producers and multiplexes, KAMINEY is expected to be pushed forward by at least a month.
Priyanka Chopra is also mighty excited about donning an altogether new look for the character of Sweety. However, she is also keeping her fingers crossed to find out whether she has been able to justify the kind of confidence that the film maker has shown in her.
Coming to the looks department, she has been donning quite a few different looks in her last few films, case in point being FASHION and DOSTANA. So is it right to assume that it was a conscious decision on her part to mix glamorous roles (as seen in DOSTANA and FASHION) with a real look, as seen in KAMINEY?
CHECK OUT: KAMINEY is far removed from what I have ever done
''Well yes, it was a conscious decision for sure. I am mixing it up and WHAT'S YOUR RASHEE, which would come next, would see me in a completely different light as well'', says Priyanka who has worked with Harman Baweja in this Ashutosh Gowariker directed film.
Just like KAMINEY, WHAT'S YOUR RASHEE too has been produced by UTV Motion Pictures (though in collaboration with Ashutosh Gowariker Productions). The film was earlier slated for a September release and it has to be seen whether the release of KAMINEY being pushed would have any bearing on WHAT'S YOUR RASHEE.
Starring Shahid Kapur in a double role and featuring Amol Gupte (Writer of TAARE ZAMEEN PAR) in the role of the main villain, KAMINEY has lyrics by Gulzar and music by Vishal Bhardwaj who is also responsible for the story, screenplay and dialogues of the film.
