Play­ing Kashibai emo­tion­ally drain­ing for Priyanka

Asian Journal - - Bollywood Journal -

Actress Priyanka Cho­pra who will be por­tray­ing the role of Maratha war­rior Peshwa Ba­ji­rao’s first wife in “Ba­ji­rao Mas­tani”, says her char­ac­ter Kashibai is a tor­tured soul in the story, and that has made the role chal­leng­ing for her. The 32-year-old, who is cur­rently await­ing the re­lease of “Dil Dhadakne Do” on June 5, said that her role as the first wife in the film was emo­tion­ally drain­ing and trau­ma­tis­ing. “I haven’t dealt with such emo­tions. I needed to find out a way to feel those emo­tions to por­tray the same. In those times, the women did not say as much, so it’s mostly ex­pres­sions... I am not vo­cal. I have a poignant role, where Kashibai is a tor­tured soul,” said Priyanka. “For the first few days, I used to be so emo­tion­ally drained that I could not have con­ver­sa­tions with peo­ple,” added the “Barfi” actress, ex­plain­ing her role in the mul­ti­star­rer. Also fea­tur­ing actress Deepika Padukone, the film will see both the ac­tresses per­form­ing in a song to­gether.
