Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra is all smiles after winning the Filmfare award in ‘Best Actress – Critics Choice’ category for her movie ‘7 Khoon Maaf’.

The actress faced a very tough competition from fellow actress Vidya Balan, who has been on an award winning spree thanks to her portrayal of Silk in the movie ‘The Dirty Picture’. While Vidya Balan walked away with ‘Best Actress – Popular Category’, Priyanka Chopra managed to grab the award in critic’s choice.

Actress Priyanka Chopra said that she had no qualms losing out to Vidya Balan because Vidya Balan was fantastic in the movie ‘The Dirty Picture’.

“Vidya was great in 'The Dirty Picture'. Very few actresses have the courage to gain about 15 kgs for a role! You know how the industry works. Actresses are extremely conscious about their weight. I could manage only 3-4kgs for ‘7 Khoon Maaf’. My problem is I cannot gain weight. I have a high metabolism rate. No matter how much I eat, I don't gain weight. I was offered a film where I was supposed to gain weight but I couldn't do it owing to this problem. Vidya on the contrary has done it,” said the actress to a popular daily.

Recently, while hosting Zee Cine Awards Priyanka Chopra did a spoof on Vidya Balan. When asked how her fellow actress reacted to her spoof, Priyanka said, “Vidya takes it in a good spirit. I wore a fat suit to imitate her. After the act she herself told me how funny it looked. She wasn't offended at all. She is extremely sporting”.
