There is no doubt about the fact that both Priyanka Chopra and Vidya Balan are supremely talented. But the former seems disappointed coz Siddharth Roy Kapur’s wifey swept away most awards for her act in Kahaani in 2012. The same year Priyanka’s much acclaimed Barfi! had also released and the film received rave reviews. In fact, Anurag Basu’s film was India’s official entry to Oscars that year. While PeeCee was praised for her gutsy performance, Vids walked away with the awards. And this didn’t go e down well with the Babli badmaash babe. The dusky beauty expressed her disappointment about the same on Karan Johar’s chat show Koffee with Karan 4.
When KJo asks, ‘Does it pinch you when sometimes you don’t get the award you deserved’? PC replies, “Yes, it did hurt me that year specifically.” Further when Karan asks the actor, ‘Did you think you were better than Vidya’? the actor-singer says, “I think my performance was a lot more nuanced and different.”
We do think PC was great in Barfi! but so was Vidya in Kahaani and hence it would have been a sticky situation for the jury wethinks.
