Priyanka: 7 Khoon… is Black Comedy

Priyanka Chopra, who is currently busy in promoting her next flick, Saat Khoon Maaf, says that the film is a black comedy. In the film, Priyanka covers a journey of a woman from her 20s through 65 years of age. The actress says,

“This is not a drama or suspense thriller. There is humour and wickedness.. a black comedy not seen for a long time.”

The Vishal Bhardwaj directed film is inspired by Ruskin Bond’s short story, Susanna’s Seven Husbands. Priyanka described her lead character Susanna as…

“difficult and complicated. 7 Khoon.. is Susanna’s journey to find love. Ageing on screen was the most difficult part. I modelled my older look on the physical appearance of my mother.”

Priyanka said the experience of working with Naseeruddin Shah, Irrfan Khan and Annu Kapoor, who play three of her seven husbands in the movie, was…

“nerve wrecking. I had never worked with them before. Annu Kapoor is a friend of my father but I had not worked with him. I did a workshop with Naseeruddin Shah before the film went on floors. I had to learn a lot from Irrfan as an actor.”

“We shot the first schedule with Irrfan where Susanna’s age is 37-40 years. I was so nervous and relied a lot on my director.

“I also shared good rapport with Neil Nitin Mukesh and Vivan during the shoot.”

When asked about intimate scenes in the film, Priyanka said the film was based on marriage.

“There can be no marriage without intimacy. Love and pain come with several other emotions. I have tried to enact them to the best of my comfort.”

We also hope people will understand your intimacy toward acting!
