The new year looks promising for Priyanka Chopra, with some big-ticket films on her to-do list. The actor, 30, is most excited and nervous about playing the lead in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s biopic on boxer Mary Kom.

“I’m really excited, but I honestly don’t know if I can pull off any film before I get on to it. There’s always a sense of nervousness. I’m extremely stressed about the Mary Kom biopic because it’s such a huge name to live up to,” she says.

Meanwhile, the actor is also starring in another Big B remake. “Everybody comes to me with Mr Bachchan’s remakes and I end up doing them. I’m excited about Zanjeer as well. It’s turning out to be a really interesting film and I hope people like it as much as Don and Agneeepath. It’s a very different character from what Jaya (Bachchan) ma’am had played in the original.”

As for being touted as a rockstar after her debut music single last year, she says, “I’m just one-song old. I’m not some pop star or rockstar. It’s just one song and I have no delusions about that. I am a debutante and it’s my beginning. I hope that I can give people more songs!”
