Priyanka fetched a lot of appreciation for the role of de-glam Jhilmil in Barfi. Talking to a leading daily, PC said, "I don't just want to be a heroine, I want to be a female actor." She further said that doing a de-glam doesn't make one less as an actor.
Priyanka had earlier won National award for her film Fashion. Recently, she won a lot of critical acclaims for Barfi. PC also said, "A lot of offers have come my way, but nothing that strikes a chord. Though, I have been dying to do a full jhatak dance song as I haven't done one for a while. Zanjeer will see me doing that."
