I am shooting with Priyanka Chopra and it will whole lot of fun working with her. The whole team and director of the film are really good. The filmmaker Ramin Bahrani is phenomenal. Priyanka Chopra is very good co-actor, she is dear friend now, she is very chilled out. The Desi girl tag for her is apt. I think she is full on desi-girl.”
