Distancing herself from ”unfounded” controversies, Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra will be one of the most busy actors in 2008 when she would have six of her films released.
Speaking at the launch ceremony of ‘‘Spice Local Lingo” SMS service by Spice Telecom for which she was the Brand ambassador, the actor said, ””last year I had a sort of sabbatical year and this year just two releases. But 2008 will be my busiest calendar as I would be acting in six films. I have acted in about 20 films in my four-year-old cinema career so far and 2008 will be the busiest.”” On the controversy over her rumoured marriage with a Bollywood actor, she said she was now clear of the ”unfounded” controversy.
It was natural for a public person to attract controversies but the truth had already come out, she said.
””Like anybody, I was also affected and so was my family by this unsavoury incident. My family and friends know the truth. When people who matter for me known the truth, I don”t want any other person”s certificate,”” she commented.
She said the new releases coming out in the next one year, included ”Drop the Cigarette”, with Salman Khan and Amitabh Bachchan, ”Love Story 2050”, ”Drona” with Abhisekh and Jaya Bachchan, Madhu Bhandarkar”s ”Fashion”, ”Chaku” and yet to be named film with John Abraham and the Big B as co-stars.
Priyanka said there were some calls from the Hollywood to act in English films, but she first preferred to ”master” acting in Indian films. ””Bollywood has broken barriers and with the money seen in the Hindi films now-a-days Hollywood is very interested in Indian films.
A lot of actors had been approached and so am I. But I prefer to act in Indian films first than become a jack of all,”” she added.
