Mumbai: Priyanka Chopra is flying high these days. The actress, who has won applauds for her fearless act in ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’ season 3, is bombarded with top notch assignments for next year. Believe it or not, but Piggy Chops has as many as nine valuable offers lined up for next year, making her the most sought-after A-list actress in the industry.
Confirming the news, a source close to Priyanka said, “Actually Priyanka has been offered a lot more projects. The nine that she is considering are the short-listed ones”.
The source further added, “The number of assignments she is doing has peaked with every passing year. In 2010, they were quite a handful. But for 2011 they have exceeded all limits. In the past one year she has already said no to plum assignments ranging from Prakash Jha’s ‘Raajneeti’ to Abbas-Mustan’s ‘The Italian Job’ because she devoted more than normal time to projects like ‘What’s Your Raashee?’ and ‘Saat Khoon Maaf’.”
And doing so many films is also taking a toll on her health. Talking about her projects, Priyanka said, “Doing the seven roles in ‘Saat Khoon Maaf’ was like doing seven different films. Then I rushed off for ‘Fear Factor’, which was again physically very exhausting. Ideally, I’d have liked to take time off before going into my next film. But there is no time. I leave for Berlin in two weeks after vigorously promoting ‘Anjaana Anjaani’ in Mumbai.”
“There is just that much work I can do. I am not the kind of person who does things half-heartedly. Whether it’s a fun film like Don 2 or an intense study of feminine postures in Saat Khoon Maaf, I am 100 per cent all there. So yes, I’ve to regretfully say no to a lot of films in the coming year,” adds the actress.
