'What's Your Raashee? failure broke my heart'

December 15, 2009 15:28 IST

Playing 12 characters in What's Your Raashee? was perhaps one of the most challenging roles for Priyanka Chopra but the actress says she was heartbroken by its no-show at the box office.

"I would be lying if I say that What's Your Raashee? failure didn't impact me. It did. It broke my heart because there was a lot that went into the making of the film," Priyanka told PTI in an interview.

"But then when a film doesn't work, it does cause you a lot of pain. Thankfully, everyone who did see the movie came out appreciating my performance. I would have been shattered if some out there would have said that they hated my performance. It would have certainly set me into an introspection mode," says the 27-year-old star.

The actress played 12 different characters corresponding to each zodiac sign in the Ashutosh Gowariker's romantic comedy.

Priyanka was earlier seen in Kaminey and saw some critical acclaim coming her way despite her small role in the Vishal Bharadwaj directed action thriller.

The actress is happy that Kaminey, which was also a box office success, didn't just manage to fetch her good recognition but also quite a few nominations. "Yes, for Kaminey, I can see my name in nominations for year end awards. It does feel good," she says.
