Priyanka Chopra May Not Be Able To Justify Her Roles In ‘What’s You Rashee?’
Bollywood actress, Priyanka Chopra, is essaying 12 characters in her forthcoming flick, ‘What’s Your Rashee?’ and according to reports this can lead the actress to enter Guinness Book of World Records.
Vikas Mohan, the editor of Trade magazine Super Cinema said, "Audiences reject films where stars do multiple roles. The past films with established actors like Sanjeev Kumar and Kamal Haasan have proved the trend. The reason is that audiences find no consistency in the roles. When they see 12 characters being played by the same star the audiences can't connect to them. Unmein interest khatam ho jata hai. Generally stars do multiple roles to prove their versatility but the films don't run."
Vikas Mohan claimed that versatile actors like Sanjeev Kumar and Kamal Haasan were able to carryoff the film but doubts that whether Priyanka Chopra will be able to play it convincingly.
"Talented actors like Sanjeev Kumar and Kamal Haasan can still carry off the film convincingly. But does Priyanka have the ability to carry off 12 roles when she can't perform convincingly in one? Stars should remain within their limits." He goes on to add, "What's Your Raashee? doesn't even have good music. There's no buzz about the film."
Editor of Trade Guide, Taran Adarsh too agreed with Vikas Mohan. "Though it's true that films like NDNR and Dasavatharam where stars play multiple roles haven't done well, it's a big high for an actor to exhibit their talent in varied roles. As far as WYR? is concerned, it depends on the story and screenplay. Director Ashutosh Gowariker knows today's sensibilities”.
"I wouldn't mind seeing Priyanka in WYR? without any prosthetics." Another film expert and editor of Film Information, Komal Nahata says, "We can't generalise these things based on past experience. It could be just a coincidence that such films haven't done well. If WYR? has a story and screenplay that connects with audiences, it could do okay”, he added.
