Priyanka is essaying the role of boxing champion Mary Kom in a biopic
for which she had to build muscles.
Her next is Zoya's Dil Dhadakne Do. "Zoya had warned me
to lose all the muscles. I was not muscular but had acquired
bulked-up physique. I had to be in right shape as I was playing a
girly role. I had to work for it, go on a crash diet and lose
shape," Priyanka said at the trailer launch of Mary Kom
Dil Dhadakne Do also features Ranveer
Singh, Farhan Akhtar, Anushka Sharma, Anil Kapoor and Shefali
Shah among others. The film revolves around a dysfunctional family
on a cruise trip and is set to release on June 5 next year.
Priyanka even revealed that for her special song in Sanjay Leela
Bhansali's Ram Leela, her Mary Kom avatar posed a
problem. "He had told me I should not shoot in this shape for the
song. I had put sleeves (on choli) so that I didn't look muscular," she said.
