In an appearance on the Hot Ones show on YouTube recently, Priyanka said that she is always touched when fans approach her and praise her performance in Barfi!, which released in 2012. "I didn't win any awards that year, I didn't get any love from... I got love from the fans," she said.
This issue was brought up in an episode of Koffee with Karan, by actor Anushka Sharma, who was promoting her film Bombay Velvet on the show with director Anurag Kashyap.
When Karan asked her if she had any question for Priyanka, Anushka said, "I'd ask her if she was disappointed that she didn't get an award for Barfi!.
