“Not that I planned for God Tussi... and Chamku to come one after another.

But fortunately I look very different in both. In God Tussi... I’m dressed in shorts and jeans. I wear a nose-ring throughout the film, a very hip and ‘today’ thing to do. In Chamku I’m a schoolteacher. So I’m dressed in saris.”

While God Tussi... is set to release on August 15, Chamku will hit screens on August 22.

The actress says she enjoyed herself while working for God Tussi...with Salman Khan and Amitabh Bachchan.

“We really had a good time shooting the film.

That sense of enjoyment shows up on screen.”

But it is her Chamku co-star Bobby Deol whom she can’t stop talking about.

“Bobby and I go back a long way. He and Sunnyji (Sunny Deol) are a part of my initial phase in Mumbai. Sunnyji did my first film The Hero with me when I was a nobody. He didn’t have to. But he encouraged a newcomer.

I’ll never forget that.

“As for Bobby we’ve done two films together before. I’d do anything for the Deols’ banner Vijeta Films any time,” Priyanka said.

Is that why she agreed to be in Chamku though it’s an out-andout Bobby Deol film?

“It is Bobby’s film, but I’ve a substantial role. I am the shoulder he cries on. Sometimes it’s good to be a shoulder instead of shouldering a film,” she chuckled.
