Wallpaper: Priyanka Chopra in What's Your Raashee?

The Bollywood movie “What's Your Raashee?”, directed by Ashutosh Gowariker, starring Priyanka Chopra and Harman Baweja in the lead roles is the second film by the pair, after the disastrous film ‘Love Story 2050’, which mostly received negative reviews from the critics despite being one of the biggest and the most expensive films of 2008. Love Story 2050 crashed as a disaster in India and overseas markets and could not recover its budget making Adlabs lose over 40 crores.

Unlike their earlier film, ‘What's Your Raashee?’ in which Priyanka Chopra plays twelve different roles, each representing twelve zodiac signs, was premiered in TIFF and promoted very well. It is going to do well as reported. The film also has evoked a lot of curiosity, as Priyanka is, perhaps, the first actor in world cinema to play twelve different characters in a single film. The characters played by Priyanka in the movie are Anjali (Aries), Vishakha (Taurus) Kajal (Gemini), Hansa (Cancer), Mallika (Leo), Pooja (Virgo), Rajni (Libra), Nandini (Scorpio), Bhavna (Sagittarius), Jhankhana (Capricorn), Sanjana (Aquarius) and Chandrika (Pisces), all as brides for the same bride-seeker (Harman Baweja), who desperately wanted to have a marriage within ten days.

Interestingly, Priyanka Chopra is to play seven different roles in another movie by Vishal Bhardwaj in which she will be playing the roles of seven wives instead of twelve prospective brides she played in ‘What's Your Raashee?’. Vishal, impressed by her in 'Kaminey', and also having seen the rushes of her twelve roles, is yet to finalize her screen husbands. The film will go on the floors as soon as the male actors are finalized to pair opposite her.
