People heaped praise on Priyanka Chopra for her sterling performance in 7 Khoon Maaf as a victimized woman who kills her husbands. Now, the talented actress will prepare for a very challenging role of a mentally-challenged heroine to the deaf-and-dumb Ranbir Kapoor.
And see who’s helping her out in preparing for the role? It’s Shahrukh Khan, her favourite co-star of Don and Don 2.
Priyanka plays a mentally challenged girl in Anurag Basu's thriller Barfee and she has to undergo training to prepare for the role. As Shahrukh effortlessly played a man with Asperger's Syndrome in My Name Is Khan, who else better than him to help her out!
Naturally, Priyanka is excited and tells a tabloid, “If the character comes out right I'll have a lot to thank him for. I consider SRK one of the finest actors in world. To be able to spend so much time with him both on and off camera is a blessing.”
Priyanka will train for almost a month for the role and has already begun visiting schools and institutions for the mentally challenged.
