Actress Priyanka Chopra, who essays the role of a woman in every stage of her life from the age of 20-65, in her next release 7 Khoon Maaf, says the film is a black comedy not seen in Bollywood for ages. “This is not a drama or suspense thriller. There is humour and wickedness..a black comedy not seen for a long time,” Priyanka said. The actress described her character Suzanna as “difficult and complicated.”
“7 Khoon.. is Suzanna’s journey to find love. Ageing on screen was the most difficult part. I modelled my older look on the physical appearance of my mother,” the 28-year-old actress said. Priyanka said the experience of working with Naseeruddin Shah, Irrfan Khan and Annu Kapoor, who play three of her seven husbands in the movie, was “nerve wrecking”. “I had never worked with them before. Annu Kapoor is a friend of my father but I had not worked with him. I did a workshop with Naseeruddin Shah before the film went on floors. I had to learn a lot from Irrfan as an actor. We shot the first schedule with Irrfan where Suzanna’s age is 37-40 years. I was so nervous and relied a lot on my director,” she said.
The Dostana star said she was most compatible with John Abraham as she knew him well having done three films earlier. “I also shared a good rapport with Neil Nitin Mukesh and Vivan during the shoot,” she said. To a question on intimate scenes in the film, Priyanka said the film was based on marriage. “There can be no marriage without intimacy. Love and pain come with several other emotions. I have tried to enact them to the best of my comfort.”
