Kangna Ranaut had initially turned down her role in Krrish 3 as she was concerned about sharing screen space with lead actress Priyanka Chopra. Apart from this, Jacqueline Fernandez and Chitrangada Singh too had similar concerns and they rejected the film and Priyanka Chopra thinks that it is a stupid thing to do. "A lot of girls rejected that role. It is really stupid to do it as it is an amazing role. I am the heroine of the film, I am playing wife of Hrithik and that is how it is," Priyanka said.
Kangna had rejected the role because she felt Piggy Chops may overshadow her. However, after she read the script, she felt that her role is very important and there is no clash between the two roles. "We both have two scenes together," revealed Priyanka.
When we asked Priyanka if all is well between the two, she there is no issue between her and Kangna Ranaut. She also mentioned that Kangna is a good friend.
Priyanka feels Kangana's role is also quite interesting and if she had the opportunity, she would have even taken it up. "Her character is credible, it is an amazing role and if I had the opportunity I would have done it. I had told Rakesh sir I am ready to play that part, as everybody was saying no to doing it," Priyanka said.
This is not the first time that Priyanka is sharing screen space with another actress. "In my first two films I came right after interval and before climax. I have learnt that the film does not run because of the length of your role but because it is a good film. I have done many two-heroine films. For me it doesn't matter, I have always thought of how good I can be in this role, what impact I am leaving in my role," Priyanka said. (PTI)

Priyanka Praises Kangna
"I am happy Kangna has done the role, she has done an amazing job. She is looking fabulous and it is a new thing for Hindi cinema," PC said.
Kangna On Her Role
Kangna on her role, "She is not a regular girl. She is a mutant and is an important part of the film. This is definitely not a two heroine film. We both are not fighting for the boy."
I'm The Heroine: Priyanka
Priyanka stressed on the fact that she is the heroine. "In this film I am the heroine of the film. Her (Kangna) character is also very interesting. In one film there can be various characters. If the film works then it works for me, Hrithik, Vivek and Kangana. If it doesn't work and I am the most important person in the film, then what is the point as eventually the film did not work," she said.
Who is Romancing Who?
Even though Priyanka plays the role of a wife to Hrithik in the film, Kangna is also seen romancing him. "This is another love story and its tricky. I am glad that these people came up with such songs. There is no other way of promoting films in India than having a song, so you show a mutant and a superhero romance each other. Hrithik has three roles in the film and you don't know who is romancing who," said Kangna.
