Priyanka Chopra is shooting for Rakesh Roshan's Krissh. Subhash K Jha Catches up with her. 
Excerpts ftrom the interview:

Q: How 's Krissh looking?

A: I just saw the rushes. It's looking terrific. I play a cool character. I play a girl who goes through a great journey…I look very different from how people have seen me. I try and do different looks for each film. I chew my stylists' brains off.
I think The Look is important. I don't want to look like Priyanka Chopra in every film. One of the perks of being an actor is you can be different people all the time. Krissh is a very emotional movie.

Q: How does your role in Krissh compare with Preity Zinta's in the original?

A: Hey, don't call Koi…Mil Gaya the original! It was the prequel. I can't compare my character with Preity's. There're no children in Krissh . But kids will love it. It's got a very feel good quality to it. This is my first film for the entirely family.

Q: You've done so many adult films.

A: I don't want to be in 'adult' films, please! I'm still a child. I want to go to Neverland and live happily ever after. 

Q: How are the Roshans treating you?

A: This is the first time I'm on my own. My mom is looking after my Dad in the US. Gudduji and Duggu have taken me under their wings. Not once have I felt alone here (in Singapore). My father's illness has taken its toll on me. But the whole family has been very supportive.
The Roshans are a wonderful family. And then Manini Dey who plays my friend is completely mad. Both of us had a whale of a time. We drove half the crew mad.

Q: And Hrithik? 

A: He inspired me to give my best. He all there. He's so charged about his work. He has his character so beautifully worked out. He completely inspired me in Krissh.

Q: Then you go into Farhan Akhtar's Don?

A: Yes , again this is something I've never played before. I play a tough yet vulnerable character. Again I want to give Roma in Don a different look. This will be shot in Malaysia. And it will be with Shah Rukh! 
You know, all my co-stars in 2006 except Salman will be first-timers for me… whether it's Akshaye Khanna, Hrithik Roshan, Shah Rukh Khan or Abhishek Bachchan…I've never worked with them before. To have such a variety of co-stars is such a blessing.

Q: What about your new assignments?

A: I'm making sure that I'm working only in films that I believe in. I do want to do a costume drama. I've said yes to Sahib Biwi Aur Ghulam . But I don't know when that happens. When I do a costume drama it has to be just right. I was offered Chandraprakash Diwedi's Prithviraj -Sanjukta. But the dates didn't work out. I regret losing out on this one since it would have paired me with my first co-star Sunny Deol… 

Q: You're working round the clock! 

A: I'm worked really hard. I love acting. I've an incredible passion for it. I'm learning something new every day. I think the next year will be decisive for me.
