    Those who have seen her playing the smoldering diva in Aitraaz and Don would be pretty surprised by what Priyanka Chopra has in store in her next release.

    "In Salaam-E-Ishq I play this wannabe, an item girl who just wants to become successful so desperately. My character is a funny, sassy, saucy screwball. And yes, I had loads of fun doing the role. It's an ensemble cast. But I'd like to believe my track with Salman is special."

    Priyanka also teams up with Salman in her other early-2007 release. "God Tussi Great Ho is another comedy. And yes, Mr Bachchan-who else! -- plays God. I guess it's time for me to let my hair down and enjoy myself. It's writer Rumi Jaffrey's debut film as a director."

    Two forthcoming films with Salman, and still rumours of a serious rift between the two persist. It's said he insisted on Katrina Kaif instead of Priyanka for Raj Kumar Santoshi's London Dreams.

    "What bunk!" Priyanka howls. "I couldn't do London Dreams only because of date problem. Salman and I get along well enough. You've to see our on-screen chemistry in Salaam-e-Ishq and God, Tussi Great Ho."

    People are whispering about the off-screen chemistry between Priyanka and the new kick on the block Harman Baweja especially since she stepped in as a last-minute replacement for Kareena in Harman's debut film Love Story 2050.

    "The only reason I did Love Story 2050 was my role. I get to do my first double role. And the two characters, specially the second one will make people sit up and notice. If styling is essential to the characterizations these days, then Love Story 2050 has got the formula right. As for stepping into the film so late, I'd always stand by a friend. Why only Harman, I'd bail out any of my friends on a crisis. Just try me."
