Yes, you read it right! In an old interview, Priyanka opened up about the experience. According to her, she was shooting for Raj Kanwar’s ‘Andaaz’ in South Africa with co-star Akshay Kumar. She had to shoot for one of her first romantic songs in the movie and there were multiple things she had to achieve at that point.
Elaborating more, she added that once the 40-something take had happened and she didn’t get it right. She remembered that Saroj Khan ji’s son Raju Khan was the choreographer. He threw his mic down and told her to learn how to dance and then come back and perform. He also added that just because she was Miss World, she should not think she can become an actress.
She went to narrate that Akshay’s wife Twinkle Khanna went into labour at that point so the schedule was cut short and they came back to India. She then went to Pandit Veeru Krishnan’s class and started learning kathak. She added that she did about six hours every single day and then when she went back, for the next schedule, she knew so much more.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Priyanka was last seen in Shonali Bose’s ‘The Sky Is Pink’ co-starring Farhan Akhtar and Zaira Wasim. She is yet to announce her next Bollywood film.
