Vidya wasn’t offended by my spoof on her: Priyanka Chopra

Priyanka Chopra looked gorgeous in an ice blue Ferragamo gown at the 57th Idea Filmfare awards. The actress was all praises for Vidya Balan who was her competitor as both were nominated in the Best Actress category. Vidya for The Dirty Picture and Priyanka for ‘7 Khoon Maaf’. In the end it was a win win situation as both actresses bagged the trophy. Priyanka as Critics choice and Vidya won in the Popular category.

An ecstatic Priyanka commented,

Vidya was great in ‘The Dirty Picture’. Very few actresses have the courage to gain about 15 kgs for a role! You know how the industry works. Actresses are extremely conscious about their weight. I could manage only 3-4kgs for 7 khoon maaf. My problem is I cannot get weight. I have a high metabolism rate. No matter how much I eat, I don’t gain weight. I was offered a film where I was supposed to gain weight but I couldn’t do it owing to this problem. Vidya on the contrary has done it.

On her recent spoof on Vidya Balan at Zee Cine Awards Priyanka clarified,

Vidya takes it in a good spirit. I wore a fat suit to imitate her. After the act she herself told me how funny it looked. She wasn’t offended at all. She is extremely sporting.
