Priyanka Chopra, Miss World 2000, is set to enter the Guinness Book of World Records for playing 12 roles in Ashutosh Gowariker’s forthcoming movie "What’s Your Rashee?". The movie is based on US based Gujarati writer Madhu Rye’s novel Kimball Ravenswood.
Anjali, Vishakha, Kajal, Hansa, Mallika, Pooja, Rajni, Nandini, Bhavna, Jhankhana, Sanjna, and Chandrika are the 12 different characters depicting 12 zodiac signs in the Ashutosh Gowariker directed movie. It is told that the producers have already sent her name the Guinness board.
But she is not the first actor to have achieved them maximum roles for a single actor. Lupino Lane, a British actor, played 24 different roles in a 1929 silent movie â€œOnly Meâ€. The funny movie was only 15 minutes long.
In India, Kamal Haasan was the first actor who played 10 roles in a movie named â€˜Dashavatharamâ€™. Another actor Sanjeev Kumar played nine roles in â€˜Naya Din Nayi Raatâ€™. That makes Priyanka the first Indian actor to play 12 roles.
I guess, Priyanka will be the first female to act in 12 different roles for the record.
