Priyanka talks Guess, 'Gunday' and Guys

American fashion brand Guess has cast Priyanka Chopra in their latest ad campaigns  -- a spot that has previously been occupied by Claudia Schiffer, Anna Nicole Smith, Drew Barrymore and Kate Upton to name a few. PC, who will appear in the ads come December, is the first Indian model for the brand.

"Being a Guess girl for me is a really big deal because the most iconic beautiful women have been part of these campaigns. It's one of the most iconic brands in the world," the 31-year-old said in Mumbai at a Guess store where she was unveiled as the new Guess girl.

"When I went to New York this time, to pick up the magazines and saw Julia Roberts in the front and myself on the back, I was like 'woah'," she added.

International singer Bryan Adams shot Priyanka for the campaign and she reveals "When they first told me that Bryan was shooting it, I thought there must be some other person by the same name."

"I couldn't think that somebody is so talented to be a singer and a photographer. But then I found out that he has done a lot of campaigns for Guess. They showed me the pictures of one of their most recent campaigns. And Bryan knew of me and I knew of Bryan. He comes to India so often that he is now half Indian," Priyanka said.

Priyanka, who went international with her singing talent by launching her first single In My City, released her second single Exotic a few months back. She is now working on her third song.

On the film front, she will soon be seen in Yash Raj Films' Gunday with Arjun Kapoor and Ranveer Singh.

When it comes to her personal life, Priyanka has a long list of benchmarks that she's set for her prospective life partner.

"I have a very long list and very high standards. He has to be a gentleman, he has to be intelligent, someone I respect and funny, not stupid funny but witty funny, charming. Basically, a male version of me," she quipped.

The actress also added that it didn't matter if her partner was not from the film fraternity.

"He needs to be an achiever, it doesn't matter if he is an actor or not an actor. I would never respect a guy who is not an achiever," she said.

Upon being probed as to why she was missing from the initial trailer of Gunday

"Obviously it's a promotional strategy. The film is Gunday and the boys play 'Gunday' which is why the introduction for them was important," said PC.

"This is a teaser and in the theatrical, rest of the characters - me, Irrfan Khan and the boys will be there, and you will get to know about the film," she finished off.

Guess, Guys, Gunday – after a difficult year personally, Ms. Chopra certainly seems to keeping herself busy. Good for her.
