Priyanka Chopra

- Vikram Chandiramani 

Priyanka Chopra in Krrish, her performance and her clothes are a disappointment and the pragmatic girl has owned up the failure, explaining it away with `personal problems` during this phase. Her former secretary Prakash Jaju has accused her of high handed behaviour and not paying him his dues (over Rs 1 crore).   

Over the last few years, Bluff Master wasn’t great shakes at the box office and even in a more successful Taxi Number 9211 she only had a special appearance, but Mujhse Shaadi Karoge and Aitraaz, both made in 2004, were great. So was Waqt: The Race Against Time. It is in the wake of these films that she has grown. 'Don' with Shahrukh Khan was an average success.

Starting as Miss World in 2000, she seemed going nowhere initially till Andaz happened and began a relationship between her and Akshay Kumar; an affair that threatened to break Akshay’s marriage with Twinkle. 

Yet, Priyanka has no reason to worry.  A look at her present, under production films include some biggies like Happy New Year, Kurbani, Love Story 2050, Ek Haseena Ek Deewana, Londong Dreams, Krrish 2, Don 2, Delhi 6, Kismat Talkies, God Tussi Great Ho Delhi 6, Chamki Chameli and Drona.  She has come a long way.
