Mumbai: Priyanka Chopra, who will be seen playing the female lead opposite Hrithik Roshan in `Agneepath`, asserts that her character is the soul of the movie.
"The best thing about Kaali (her character in the film) is that she is Vijay`s strength. She is the soul, happiness and naughtiness in the film... So to prepare, I had to just follow Karan," the 29-year-old actress said at the unveiling of the second look of the film.
Priyanka has tried her best to keep this Maharashtrian character as different as possible from the character of Sweety in `Kaminey`.
"I was playing a Maharashtrian girl for the second time. When Karan Malhotra and I discussed the film, we were very clear that we have to try to keep this character as different as possible from my character of Sweety in `Kaminey` because the personalities of both the girls are different.
"Karan was very clear-minded about Kaali`s character. So, it was very easy for me," said Priyanka who was recently seen in `Don 2: The King is Back`.
For 2012, besides `Agneepath`, Priyanka has `Barfee`, `Teri Meri Kahaani` and `Krrish 2` slated to release.
`Agneepath` will release Jan 26 and also features Sanjay Dutt and Rishi Kapoor in key roles.
