Don’t let the hot scenes between Priyanka Chopra and Shahid Kapoor in Kaminey mislead you — the film is promoting safe sex and Aids awareness. A track written by Vishal Bharadwaj himself and sung by Sukhwinder Singh sends the message home crystal clear. Inspired by movies such as Pulp Fiction and True Romance, the film about the Bengali mafia kicks off on August 14th.
Priyanka meanwhile has picked up her 10th Award in six months — winning the Jin Jue Award at the Shanghai International Film Festival. “I feel very privileged to receive this honour from the Shanghai International Film Festival,” she said, “As an actor, it is very encouraging to be recognized for your work. For me, an award such as this on such a big international platform gives me an opportunity to present India and our cinema to the world.”
Priyanka has been talking of her excitement over her first Yash Raj production, Pyaar Impossible, with Uday Chopra. “It’s the only script I’ve liked in recent months,” she says, “I can’t tell you much about the film’s plot but when I heard the script, I jumped. I got so excited. It was… so beautiful! Any actress’s dream role. I reacted as a member of the audience would.”
