Priyanka Chopra is the ultra glamorous lady of Bollywood (if you have seen Dostana and Fashion, there is no two ways about it), and Shahid Kapoor is most popular for his boy-next-door image.
Is it risky to take both of them out of their most famous image and present them in a totally different avatar? Director Vishal Bhardwaj doesn't seem to think so as he has given Shahid and Priyanka a complete makeover in his upcoming venture, Kaminey.
Priyanka is playing the role of a traditional Marathi girl, Sweety, in Kaminey. This image is totally opposite of her glamorous, fashion diva image. Shahid Kapoor's fans are also in for a surprise as the cool dude will be in seen in a double role in Kaminey, where one of the characters he's playing doesn't only stammer, but also portrays a total disheveled look.
Only time will tell if the makeovers have a positive or a negative effect on the careers of the two stars and the fate of 'Kaminey.' Currently, Priyanka and Shahid are very much happy about the film, and had no trouble whatsoever going for a makeover. After all, the reality element to the films is a key these days.
Due to the ongoing conflict between the multiplexes and the film producers and distributors, the releasing date of Kaminey has been changed from June 5th to June 26th, 2009. For the sake of Bollywood lovers, let's hope the conflict will be resolved soon, and Kaminey will be released on its current date.
