"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.

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.
