The infamous nose job

"She looked terrible, she was so dark, what in the world had she done to herself? I summoned her immediately, and she came over the next day with her mother. They were in tears, they told me about the operation, which had even left a mark under her nose. It's still there to this day. They said it would take months to heal, and that Priyanka had been dropped from several projects she'd already signed," Sharma said in an interview.

The director went on to reveal how he chose to stand by Priyanka and had faith in her talent. The film along side Sunny Deol and Preity Zinta went on to be another big success and changed Priyanka's career trajectory.
