I wish I had done 'Chikni Chameli': Priyanka Chopra

Added by harini on Jan 19, 2012

We all know that the movie ‘Agneepath’ is a story circling around Vijay played by Hrithik Roshan and Kancha Cheena played by Sanjay Dutt. So one must wonder where exactly does Priyanka Chopra, who plays the role of Kaali, fits in.

The actress Priyanka Chopra admits that her role is a small one but emphasizes that it’s an important one.

“It’s small but not inconsequential. Kaali lives for Vijay and his happiness. She’s ready to fight life’s situations with a smile for him,” said Priyanka Chopra to HT.

“Everyone knows it’s basically a revenge story between Vijay and Kancha Cheena. So naturally, I couldn’t become the focus of the plot. Kaali is important for the story to move further. She’s not a decorative item in the movie,” she added.

Katrina Kaif’s song ‘Chikni Chameli’ from the movie has managed to grab more eyeballs than any of her songs in the movie.

When asked if this made her jealous she replied, “We were all praying that Katrina takes it up. It’s worked so well for the promotions. I’m satisfied, not jealous,”

She though went on to add that she would have liked to have done ‘Chikni Chameli’ herself if it was possible.

“Our characters, according to the script, don’t have that energy, which is where Katrina enters. It’s another story that if I hadn’t been Kaali, I could have been Chikni Chameli. Who wouldn’t want to take up a dance number like that?” she concluded.
