After a rather non-happening 2007, Priyanka Chopra is eagerly looking forward to 2008 in which she will feature in as many as half dozen films.
This year, Priyanka was seen in two films – Salaam-e-Ishq and Big Brother – both of which were turkeys at the box-office. However, the actress will be one of the busiest stars next year.
“Last year I had a sort of sabbatical year and this year just two releases. But 2008 will be my busiest calendar as I would be acting in six films. I have acted in about 20 films in my four-year-old cinema career so far and 2008 will be the busiest,” Priyanka said while speaking at the launch ceremony of 'Spice Local Lingo' SMS service by Spice Telecom for which she was the Brand ambassador.
She said the new releases coming out in the next one year include: God Tussi Great Ho with Salman Khan and Amitabh Bachchan , Love Story 2050 with Harman Baweja , Drona with Abhishek Bachchan , Madhur Bhandarkar's Fashion , another film called Chamki Chameli and a yet-to-be-named film with John Abraham as co-star.
Priyanka said there were some calls from the Hollywood to act in English films, but she first preferred to 'master' acting in Indian films.
“Bollywood has broken barriers and with the money seen in the Hindi films nowadays Hollywood is very interested in Indian films. A lot of actors had been approached and so am I. But I prefer to act in Indian films first than become a jack of all,” she added.
