Hrithik Roshan's Krrish has had a bumper opening and Priyanka Chopra, his love interest in the film, is terribly excited over her new opus.
"The standards for a typical Hindi cinema will have to be raised irreversibly after Krrish. The special effects are totally new to Indian cinema. In Dubai I saw the frenzy the film generated. I just hope it lives up to expectations."
"Krrish is super-special for me. I had so much fun doing it."
But isn't it a totally hero-centric flick?
'Krrish is super-special for me'
"Hrithik plays the title role, like Spiderman, Batman, so obviously it is his film. But my part is not just supportive. I am there to help Hrithik save the world at the end."
Priyanka preens proudly about her part.
"I play a broadcast journalist. Like most NRIs, she is a curious traveller in India. During her travel she meets this boy with amazing powers.
"I fell in love with this project instantaneously. It is a character of a young naïve curious girl, which I haven't played before. It is actually a character much closer to what I am in real life than most of what I have played. It brought out another dimension in me as an actress."
After Akshay Kumar, with whom she has featured in four consecutive blockbusters, she is hoping to make another very successful pair with Hrithik.
"I know Hrithik and I look good together. People tell me I look good with all my heroes. Both the Roshans (Hrithik and Rakesh) made me feel thoroughly at home. So I had great fun doing Krrish."
