Priyanka Chopra’s overworking herself to a point of no return

MEENA IYER Times News Network (BOMBAY TIMES; August 26, 2009)

There are czarinas and actresses. And then, there is Priyanka Chopra, a perfect blend of both. PC, who has been inundated with compliments for her performance in Vishal Bharadwaj’s Kaminey, is completely overwhelmed with bouquets. However, somewhere deep down, she is also a little worried. The good news is that she is on a hat-trick. For Madhur Bhandarkar’s Fashion she walked away with every award in the book, for Karan Johar’s Dostana she got compliments galore, and now for Kaminey — the praise is still pouring in. “I’m over-awed, I can’t tell you how great it feels,’’ says the natural-born actress. She says she worked really hard for the part of the feisty, uninhibited middle-class Maharashtrian girl, Sweety in Kaminey. “While the hard work paid dividends it also took from me a lot of blood sweat tears and more,’’ she sighs. She is glad that she walked the path less travelled in her movies — Fashion was women-centric; Dostana was a light-hearted mainstream take on homosexuality; Kaminey got critical acclaim for being refreshingly different. “In other words, the cinema I have done in recent times has been liberating, it has broken barriers.’’

And, while she is killing herself over reactions to her next film What’s Your Rashee? — where she essays 12 diversely unique parts, she is seriously worried about the impact of it all on her health.

“I have said this earlier,’’ says the actress, “it’s the same OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) at work. I’ve been warned by my parents (both doctors) and well-wishers not to let work take its toll on me. And, though I wish to pay heed to their advice, I can’t stop myself from getting excessively involved with the work I take on. Honestly, I drive myself to a point of no return when it comes to any part that I undertake in a film. I’m just so involved that it starts to hurt. And I don’t realise I’m bleeding till such time as I’m on a set because I don’t stop to look.’’

The actress has forcibly been ordered a hiatus from the studios by her parents. And, when she returns, she hopes to once again start promoting her WYR? and Pyaar Impossible with gusto.

With some girls — there is absolutely no such thing as a ‘take-it-easy-policy.’ Hai na, PC?
