Kangana had initially turned down the film as she was concerned about sharing screen space with Priyanka. Earlier, Jacqueline Fernandez, Chitrangada Singh, had similar concerns and they rejected the film.
"A lot of girls rejected that role (Kangana's). It was a really stupid thing to do as it is an amazing role. I am the heroine of the film, I am playing Hrithik's wife and that is how it is," Priyanka said in an interview here.
Priyanka feels Kangana's role is also quite interesting and if she had the opportunity, she would have even taken it up.
"Her character is credible, it is an amazing role and if I had the opportunity I would have done it. I had told Rakesh sir I am ready to play that part, as everybody was saying no to it," Priyanka said.
"I am happy Kangana has done the role, she has done an amazing job. She is looking fabulous and it is a new thing for Hindi cinema," she said.
This is not the first time that Priyanka is sharing screen space with another actress.
"In my first two films I showed up on screen right after the interval and before the climax. I have learnt that the film does not run because of the length of your role but because it is a good film. I have done many two-heroine films. For me it doesn't matter, I have always thought of how good I can be in this role, what impact I am making with my role," Priyanka said.
"In this film I am the heroine of the film. Her character is also very interesting. In one film there can be various characters... if the film works then it works for me, Hrithik, Vivek and Kangana. If it doesn't work out and I am the most important person in the film, then what is the point as eventually the film did not work," she said.
