Looks do matter. Especially when the lady in question is Priyanka Chopra. She was a stunner in her last two successful outings at the box office–Dostana and Fashion. If in the former she was the editor of a fashion magazine, in the latter she was a show-stopper herself.
She is quite choosy about what she does and, right now, she has picked out only two projects, Kaminey and What's Your Rashee. What makes Kaminey special is the fact that she got to work with director Vishal Bhardwaj, a master story teller when it comes to real cinema, and known for giving his leading ladies an entirely different look.
Says Priyanka's close associate, "In the film, she plays the role of Sweety–who is not only a bindaas girl but also someone who is traditional to the core. She is on a complete tangent if one remembers her ultra chic and glam avatar in the films that she has been seen in over the years.”
Agrees Priyanka, for whom Kaminey will be her first release of 2009. "Yes, there has been an effort to make Sweety look completely different. She had to be believable and someone who isn't ultra glamorous. Also, I have gone with a minimal make-up look in the film."
Even Shahid Kapoor seems to be enjoying his double role in the film–where one of the characters played by him not only stammers but also has an unkempt look. 'Reality' is what Vishal Bhardwaj has ensured in his characters and the same holds good for Shahid, too.
With both Shahid and Priyanka seemingly going for a makeover and giving an altogether new account of themselves, the wait begins for this film which is all set to arrive at theatres on 26th June.
