Global icon and Bollywood superstar Priyanka Chopra recently opened up about her dedication to her craft during an appearance at the Jio MAMI Mumbai film festival. She shared insights into her acting choices, career trajectory, and the making of the acclaimed film Saat Khoon Maaf, directed by Vishal Bhardwaj.
Priyanka Chopra recalls seeking guidance from Naseeruddin Shah for Saat Khoon Maaf
Based on Ruskin Bond's story, Susanna's Seven Husbands, Saat Khoon Maaf features a stellar cast, including John Abraham, Irrfan Khan, Neil Nitin Mukesh, and Vivaan Shah. Priyanka revealed her commitment to portraying the complex character Susanna, going to the extent of taking acting classes from the legendary actor, Naseeruddin Shah, for ten days.
Recalling her interaction with Naseeruddin Shah, Priyanka said, "I asked him, ‘Can you please work with me on the script?’ He said, ‘What work do you need?’ I said, ‘Tell me what choices I should make. This is a very complex character.’ He said every answer that you need is in your script."
Priyanka's dedication to her craft extended beyond Naseeruddin Shah's classes. She also sought guidance from veteran actor Pankaj Kapur, who advised her to find the answers within the script itself. This advice resonated with Priyanka, highlighting the importance of understanding the character's motivations and emotions.
Apart from discussing Saat Khoon Maaf, Priyanka also shared her experiences with other films, including Fashion, where she faced criticism for choosing a "female-oriented" movie. Despite the naysayers, Priyanka followed her instincts and delivered a powerful performance.
Currently, Priyanka is eagerly anticipating the release of Farhan Akhtar's directorial venture, Jee Le Zaraa. She was last seen in the romantic comedy, Love Again.
