16 Years of Aitraaz: Priyanka Chopra says playing Sonia Roy was a big risk; today she looks at it as a game changer

“2004, one year into being an actor, I played Sonia Roy in the Abbas-Mustan thriller Aitraaz.It was by far the boldest part I had taken on, which was a big risk at the time since I was very new in the film business. I must admit I was scared as hell but the artist inside me was crying for a chance to do something interesting and Sonia was exactly that... wicked, predatory, complicated and self-serving for the most part, but also surprisingly vulnerable and emotional,” she wrote alongside the video.

“I will forever be grateful to the dynamic director duo of Abbas-Mustan, not only for trusting such a relative newcomer like me for this role, but for also understanding my inhibitions and pushing me to deliver a performance to be proud of,” she added.

“Today, 16 years later, as I look back, Aitraaz was a game changer for me. It taught me to play my characters with conviction and not judgement,” Chopra wrote.
