Priyanka Chopra is an accomplished actress who has won numerous awards, including two National Film Awards, two People’s Choice Awards, and others. It’s a big deal for an actor like PeeCee to earn appreciation from another two-time National Award winner, but she did. Annu Kapoor, the actor, showered her with affection.
Both Priyanka and Annu appeared in two films together: Aitraaz and 7 Khoon Maaf. While uttering some beautiful things for her in this throwback discussion, he also got very explosive about how grateful she should be to him.
Priyanka Chopra has a highly talented voice, according to Annu Kapoor, who spoke about his 7 Khoon Maaf co-stars during a 2012 interview. Further talking about her, the veteran actor said in Hindi, “Even during the filming of 2011 movie I told her that ‘Listen, this is a very difficult role, give it your all. If you don’t receive an international award for it then I will be the most sad person.’ You can clarify this with her anytime. Whatever I’ve said to her face, that’s the same I have said behind her back.”
Talking further about Priyanka Chopra, Annu Kapoor said, “Main usko criticize karunga. Criticize aur abuse mai farq hai. Aap mujse puchiye, mai criticize karunga. Aur usko toh khush hona chahiye.” Adding that he is a senior actor and maybe just a couple of years younger than her dad, Kapoor said, “Maine use set ke upar bhi kaha tha ki muje bahut dukh hoga agar tuje koi aacha Oscar nahi laya toh, capable ladki hai isliye bola tha.”
Continuing further about the former Miss World, Annu Kapoor said, “Priyanka Chopra ke baare mai ek senior actor ne – jitni ki umar nahi hai uske double saal toh maine sangharsh karne mai hoga bhaiya. Ab ho heroine hai, mai character artiste hu. Lekin agar, kalakar ko kalakar se toiloge toh stardom utaro aur kala ke shetre mai samne aao. Phir baat karte hai. Stardom ke joh stars yaha (pointing to his shoulders) tange rakhe hai woh hatao aur kalakar se kalakar ki baat hone do.”
“Ek kalakar aur ek desh bhakth ne Priyanka Chopra ko yaad kiya hai, usko toh mere charan sparsh karne chahiye.” Annu Kapoor said, adding that she should be delighted that he remembered her while giving an interview.
