I play a prostitute's daughter in 'Agneepath': Priyanka Chopra

The remake of cult classic ‘Agneepath’, featuring Hrithik Roshan, Priyanka Chopra, Sanjay Dutt and Rishi Kapoor, might be garnering great response even before the release of film but making the movie wasn’t an easy job.

“Who said it could ever be easy?” said actress Priyanka Chopra, who plays the role of Kaali in the movie.

The actress had to endure a two week long night shift and had to shoot on the streets of the studio set basti, which according to her was very strenuous.

“It was a challenging role. I play a prostitute's daughter, not a prostitute. The love track from the original film (between Amitabh Bachchan and Madhavi) has been changed,” she said to a leading daily.

Apparently, the actress hadn’t seen the original ‘Agneepath’ before and only watched it after starting to shoot for the remake.

“I saw the original ‘Agneepathfor the first time some weeks after we started shooting. What did I think of the film and Mr (Amitabh) Bachchan's performance? Who am I to comment on someone as great as Mr Bachchan? I didn't approach ‘Agneepathas a remake. To me, every film is a new experience regardless of the references,” she said.

Other than 'Agneepath' the actress is working alongside Hrithik Roshan in ‘Krrish’ sequel ‘Krrish 3’.

“Though I am playing the same part as the original, I see the role as a new one and not one in continuation,” she said.

The actress had come under a lot of slander from everyone due to her looks and make in the movie ‘Krrish’.

“I haven't forgotten how seriously I was pulled up in ‘Krrish. In my defense, I was going through a very rough patch in my life when I did ‘Krrish. That, of course, is no excuse. But you will never see me neglect my looks again,” she concluded.
