So how much money has actress Priyanka Chopra got for her three film deal with UTV? "I've no complaints on that front. It's a decent sum", says she. It's been a year since Priyanka signed a film. But now she has decided to do three films with UTV.
"We were in talks for a couple of months. I like this deal because I've complete creative freedom. I can choose whichever script, director and project I want. It's a new way of approaching cinema. I'm not looking at changing my image or anything. Why can't we do something experimental and yet achieve box office success? That's why I like what UTV is doing. Look at Rang De Basanti and Metro. What excites me about working with UTV is, they're willing to let me work how I want to. I'll be sitting on a project from inception. I'll be allowed to choose directors I want to work with."
And the directors she'd like to work with? "I've only three choices with UTV. What's lovely about this deal is that I can bring in a director of my choice. These guys know how to market a movie. Otherwise even the biggest of films bomb."
