Priyanka Turned Deaf & Dumb For Anurag’s Next

After playing seven shades in Vishal’s Saat Khoon Maaf, Priyanka Chopra will turn into deaf and dumb for UTV and Anurag Basu’s joint venture, Barfee. The film has already been gone into floor.

However, Priyanka Chopra has asked for an additional 10 days to get into character before commencing shooting. A source says,

“Anurag is aware that Barfee is a difficult film to make. The characters of all the three lead actors Ranbir, Priyanka and Illeana are extremely challenging.

So, when Priyanka Chopra asked for some more days to get into the skin of the character, Anurag readily agreed.

The film was scheduled to start on March 10. However it has now been pushed to March 20.”

“It is not a big delay but it still is a delay nonetheless. Priyanka felt that she needed time with Anurag to do workshops to work on her looks and expressions for the film.

She also wanted to know how she will be presented, considering she plays a deaf and dumb character.”
