Actress Priyanka Chopra couldn’t have asked for a better start this New Year. Her movie ‘Agneepath’ is breaking the box office records while the actress herself won the India’s most prestigious award Filmfare Award for Best Actress Critics Choice.

“The year has begun on a fabulous note for me.’Agneepath' is a hit and I won the Filmfare for Best Actor (Critics Choice) for 'Saath Khoon Maaf’,” said the actress.

“I wish I could celebrate the wonderful start to the year. But I'm working round the clock and there is absolutely no time for celebrations,” she added.

The actress is currently in Hyderabad shooting for her movie ‘Krrish 3’ alongside Hrithik Roshan.

When asked about the chemistry she shares with Hrithik Roshan she said, “Hrithik is a great co-star. We've worked together a few years ago in ‘Krrish’, we just did ‘Agneepath’ and now, we are shooting the sequel to ‘Krrish’. He is amazing.”

The actress also tasted success with her movie ‘Don 2’, as it went on to become a hit at the box office. So will there be another sequel?

“Well, I don't mind playing the Don's 'Junglee Billi'. But only Farhan and Ritesh know if they are ever going to make a sequel to 'Don 2'. In fact it took them five long years to make the sequel to 'Don',” she said.

The rumors about an alleged relationship between her and her ‘Don’ co-star Shah Rukh Khan that started during the shooting of 'Don 2' refuse to die down even till date. But the actress maintains that Shah Rukh Khan is her very good friend and nothing more.

“He is one of my best friends; everyone in the industry is very close to me,” she said.

When asked when she could be seen in a Tollywood movie the actress said, “I have done a Telugu movie, but that was a long time back. The offers that come to me these days from Tollywood are either not too exciting or I have some date issues. But yes, if something great comes my way and I can accommodate my dates, then yes; you'll see me in a Tollywood flick.”

Priyanka Chopra is currently working with one of Tollywood’s top heroine Ileana D’Cruz in Anurag Basu’s ‘Barfee’ that also stars Ranbir Kapoor.

The rumors of a catfight between the two actresses have been rife for quite some time now. But the Priyanka Chopra denied the rumors and claimed that she and Ileana are infact friends.

“Ileana is a sweet girl. We've been shooting for 'Barfee' for over a year. I've met her mother, sister and nephew. She is a beautiful girl and good actor. We got along really well. And yes, we are friends,” she clarified.
