Mumbai: Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra very well knows that after her National award winning role in ‘Fashion’, the expectation of a stellar performance in whatever movie she appears is but evident. And hence, to keep up to the standards, the babe is leaving no stones unturned.

News has it that Priyanka will be spending some time in a mental asylum to research and understand the character good enough to give a justifying portrayal of the role she will be playing in Anurag Basu’s ‘Silence’.

In ‘Silence’, it is learnt that Priyanka portrays a mentally challenged character and to know about such patients, she has decided to visit and stay some days at a mental facility.

A source close to the actress confirmed, "At first, Priyanka was reluctant to take on the film since another leading lady (Katrina Kaif) was already on board. But when she understood the impact and nature of her role, Priyanka fell for it. She has preparing for it and intends to visit a few institutions, where she plans to spend at couple of days."

Validating the same, Priyanka said, "I will begin shooting for Anurag Basu`s film in January 2011. After I complete Don 2. And yes, I`m setting aside time to prepare for the part. I will need special training to be adept at playing the character. How many actors from my generation get challenges like this? If I`m being given the opportunity, I better make the most of it."
