Actress Priyanka Chopra says the cast and crew of her international TV series “Quantico” are excited about her period drama “Bajirao Mastani”.
“There is a lot of excitement for ‘Bajirao Mastani’ here. My entire cast and crew is going to have a special screening. They want clothes from film and they’re very excited,” Priyanka told reporters from the US through video conferencing during the trailer launch of “Bajirao Mastani”.
Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone, who also play lead roles in the film, were present during the launch with the director of the film Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
Priyanka said that the response she is getting for the film is amazing.
“People are very excited. We were trending (on social media) in the US all day even before the trailer came out. This is a part of history, but it is Sanjay sir’s fictional version of the story of Bajirao and Mastani. It’d be wonderful to see how people respond to it internationally,” she said.
“Bajirao Mastani” narrates the story of the 18th century Maratha warrior Peshwa Bajirao I and his second wife Mastani. The film will release on December 18.
Priyanka is in the US shooting for the series where she plays Alex Parrish, an FBI agent.
When asked how she managed to handle two completely different and difficult projects at the same time, she says that its her “job”.
“It’s my job as a actor to be able to differentiate between my characters and over the years I’ve been able to learn to slip in and out of characters.”
