Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra who has been romantically linked with all her co-stars, especially Akshay Kumar and Shahid Kapur off-screen, says she heaved a sigh of relief when the media did not do so with current heartthrob Ranbir Kapoor during the shooting of Anjana Anjani.
"Thankfully there was no link up and the media projected our friendship during the making of the film in US in the right perspective. I said to myself...the media has improved," Priyanka said.
The 27-year-old actress said she had lot of pre-conceived notions about the Kapoor scion.
"I had met him earlier through common friends and always thought he was the spoilt son of a rich father. But, as we got to know each other during the filming of Anjana Anjani, we discovered that we had lot in common and would talk a lot," she said.
However, breaking the ice was not easy, she said."Initially, we would just stick to our work and go our separate ways after shots during the US schedule. As the shooting progressed, we spent a lot of time with each other and became friends," she said.
As an actor, Priyanka said, Ranbir kept her on her toes. "Even though, we are of the same age, I am senior to him professionally," she said.
