Do you while growing up Priyanka never aspired to do what the quintessential Hindi cinema heroines did? PC recently opened up during a masterclass with Bhumi Pednekar during MAMI Film Festival for Film Companion and said she had a girl crush on Madhuri Dixit and Sridevi. She said she never ever aspired or thought to wear chiffon saree and look so dreamy.

Although she recalled doing the similar things after a few years. She said “I was in a chiffon saree, in Jungfrau, Switzerland, in a green saree. Obviously the guy is dressed in head to toe fur and I was in a blouse and chiffon saree and I was standing in a bucket of hot water for close up shots. And I am saying the lines like this, (chatters teeth) and on top of it there is a helicopter above because we are taking a helicopter shot.”

She further added that ” The glamour of it was taken away from me very quickly and I just started enjoying the medium of work and the possibility of what you can do with the characters.”
