Former Miss World Priyanka Chopra may have done more roles as the docile love interest in Bollywood films, but the dusky beauty says it is adventure sports and action scenes that get her adrenalin pumping.
“I freak out if I can go for some adventure sports,” Chopra told Reuters. “I’m too lazy to play cricket or football or even to run. I would rather enjoy jumping off a cliff.”
Like most Bollywood heroines, Chopra, 25, has acted mostly in films where the girl has to look good and be able to lip-sync and dance. But of late, she has starred in fast-paced action roles in films such as “Don” and “Krrish”.
She says she fell in love with action roles while shooting for the slick remake of the hit gangster film “Don” and was now trying out some tough and strenuous acts in her forthcoming movie “Drona”.
“Like adventure sports, action excites me anytime now,” she said. “In ‘Drona’ I am doing some great action stunts and I’m loving it thoroughly.” “Drona” is expected to open next year.
