Doing much more than just being a pretty face: Priyanka

Priyanka Chopra is happy to be in Bollywood at a time when women performers are doing much more in films than just being a pretty face.

The 31-year-old actress, who now has a budding international music career, says it is great to see strong roles being written for women in the industry, which is often blamed for being male-dominated.

Priyanka thinks she has finally managed to strike a balance between big budget commercial fares and roles that do justice to her as an actor.

"I think it is really good time for female actors in Bollywood. We get to do so much... Parts are being written for us. I am very fortunate that roles are being written for me where I can do much more than just being a pretty face," the former Miss World told PTI in an interview.

"Yes, you have to do films like that also (being a pretty face). But, it is great to have the ability to have so much going on for you," she adds.

Priyanka had two releases last year -- the superhit 'Krrish 3' and 'Zanjeer' remake which did not do that well. She is looking forward to her first release this year with 'Gunday' hitting the screens tomorrow.

In the Yash Raj Film, Priyanka plays the role of a glamorous cabaret dancer Nandita in the Kolkata of 1970s. She is being romanced by Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor.Priyanka says she was inspired by her mother's look in that era to recreate Nandita.
