Priyanka Chopra says she’s the lucky mascot for Zanjeer

The professional attitude of Priyanka Chopra has certainly taken her to new heights. After conquering the western countries with her super sexy looks in the Exotic video, the sizzling actress is all set to feature in the upcoming movie, Zanjeer. And she’s leaving no stone unturned to promote her film.

Looking drop dead gorgeous in a white and black fitted dress, the actress was not as nervous as her co-star Ram Charan Teja. Ram Charan also took the chance to clear all talks about his previous statement, ‘not expecting much from Zanjeer’. 

“I always expect a lot from my movies, and this one is no exception,” said the new debutante from the south who is testing Bollywood waters.

Stepping into the illustrious shoes of Amitabh Bachchan, Ram Charan said, “I am wearing my own shoes, and yes, it took me a long time to say yes to this film, I will be scrutinised but let’s hope I get ten percent of the love from the audience.”

Priyanka Chopra, who has now become synonymous with Bachchan remakes with appearances in Don, Agneepath and now Zanjeer, said, “I have a good track record with the remakes, so I am the lucky mascot.”

The restraining order has been removed. So when Priyanka and Ram Charam had asked if they had pre-empted the economic crisis, their tag line being, ‘a fight against the oil mafia;.

The cast hoped they could fight against the rising rupee dollar ratio instead.

Priyanka Chopra has also been working on her fitness and boxing skills for her upcoming biopic Mary Kom. She admits that  she hates pumping iron and was waiting to finish Mary Kom so that she could quit gym again!
“Yes, it’s a tough role, the lady is 32 and still boxing, what achievements and hats off to her. And there hasn’t been a movie on a female achiever since Fearless Nadia,” she said. “Mary Kom is tough and I am giving it all I have,” she added.

So, what about the Chopra box office clash with cousin Parineeti’s Shuddh Desi Romance hitting theatres on the same day?

She replied saying,  ”It’s a Chopra weekend at the movies. Enjoy folks.

Priyanka will be seen in quite a glamorous but a serious sort of a role in Zanjeer while her cousin Parineeti Chopra will be seen playing the usual bold character in Shuddh Desi Romance, with which she’s quite familiar to. Which movie would you rather go for - Zanjeer or Shuddh Desi Romance ?
