Mumbai: Anna Hazare’s anshan has inspired one and all for sure. Taking a leaf out of Anna’s book, Bollywood hottie Priyanka Chopra chose not to eat food for over three days while shooting for her latest!
Buzz has it that Piggy Chops got into the skin of her character for Ranbir Kapoor starrer `Barfee`, directed by Anurag Basu. The petite actress got so committed to the character that she decided to live the “reel” character in real.
Not only Priyanka, even filmmaker Basu decided to soulfully feel the character. So the actress-director duo isolated from the rest of the cast and crew and locked itself up in a room for over 3 days. Even co-star Ranbir Kapoor couldn’t believe his eyes!
Talking to a tabloid, a source revealed, "At first Ranbir laughed off Priyanka`s method acting. Tu Marlon Brando hai kya? (Are you trying to be Marlon Brando?). He told her to `just act` the sequence. But PC was adamant. She made it very clear to Anurag that she would actually go through her character`s ordeal for three days."
"To Anurag, who had written the character and the sequence, it seemed unfair that Priyanka should go at it alone. He insisted on going through what the actress` character suffers when confined to a solitary life. Only then did Anurag allow Priyanka to go through the harrowing experience herself," added the source.
