Mumbai, Feb 3:
She says her body feels “battered” due to long working hours, but actress Priyanka Chopra says she is loving her job and is excited about the premiere of the second season of her international TV show “Quantico” on March 6.
“17 hours!! What is happening! Thank god I love my job! Body feeling battered… Need a good Zzzzz. Love ya world! Quantico March 6,” tweeted Priyanka.
The former Miss World, who is one amongst the many global names who will be a presenter at the much coveted Oscar awards ceremony, has garnered international fame for her lead role as Alex Parrish in American TV series “Quantico”.
Back home, the actress was last seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus “Bajirao Mastani” and will next be seen playing the role of police officer Abha Mathur in Prakash Jha’s directorial “Jai Gangaajal”.
Priyanka says that maintaining femininity in uniform was one challenging task for her.
“When you are playing a tough character, when you are dressed in a uniform it becomes very difficult to maintain femininity and that was very important to me.
“Prakash-ji and I discussed that as a woman, it’s very important to celebrate womanhood and yet at the same time be in a position of authority and that’s how Abha is, which is very different from how we see tough women,” the actress said in a statement.
“When they do action sequences, women somehow tend to lose their femininity. It’s beautiful that Abha is extremely feminine and very graceful but at the same time not someone to be taken for granted. She is very graceful and dignified and I enjoyed playing her,” she added.
“Jai Gangaajal” revolves around a woman IPS officer, who is brought in a well oiled system of the powerful, as she is thought to be weak, pliable and easy to manipulate. However, things become difficult for them when she comes into confrontational mode.
“Jai Gangaajal” revisits the dusty heartland of central India and examines the society-police relationship.(IANS)
