Priyanka Chopra

Priyanka Chopra-starrer 'Barfi' may have won accolades at almost all the film awards, but it failed to garner any appreciation at the national awards, which has left the actress disappointed.

"I am feeling bad that 'Barfi' did not win a national award. But then it is up to the jury why they did not give the award," Priyanka told reporters  at the launch of her first item song 'Babli Badmaash' here.

Anurag Basu's 'Barfi' was a love story in which Ranbir Kapoor played the role of a deaf and mute person, while Priyanka played an austistic girl's role.


Priyanka, however, said that she is happy that her cousin actress Parineeti Chopra, who won a special mention at the National Awards today for her role in 'Ishaqzaadez'.
"I am happy for her. Now, in the Chopra family, there are two national awards. The whole day I had to explain what special mention means!," Priyanka said.

Priyanka had won a national award for Madhur Bhandarkar's 'Fashion'.
