Decking up like a bride was my favourite look: Priyanka Chopra

“Since I was four years old, I used to deck up like a bride for fancy dress competitions because that's my favourite look,” says Priyanka Chopra who is yet to get married in real life.

Actor-filmmaker Atul Agnihotri, who took a break from film direction post the 2008 film "Hello", now plans to don the director's hat once again next year.

"(Film) Direction is certainly on my mind, but nothing this year. I will start working from next year and I need to make a practical decision, whichever materialises I will go with that. Yes, I would like to direct, but let's see," Agnihotri told IANS.

Having produced movies like "Bodyguard" and "Jai Ho", he knows exactly what kind of a film he wants to direct.

"If at all I direct, it will be a hardcore commercial film, heavy on dialogues. A 'he said-she said kind of a thing. I like 'dialogue-baazi', but let's see," added Agnihotri, who has earlier directed films including "Dil Ne Jise Apna Kahaa" and "Hello".

Asked why he took a break post "Hello", he said: "I got busy with film production, and that takes all the time. It was not a conscious effort as just happened to be so."

There are reports that "Bodyguard 2" may be underway, and Agnihotri, who is actor Salman Khan's brother-in-law, says they are still trying to work it out.

"I am constantly trying to crack that, but things have to fall in place. We need Bhai's (Salman's) dates and a good script. So it takes time."

The 32-year-old believes in the institution of marriage, but she is yet to find someone who matches up to her expectation.

When asked when does she plan to settle down, Priyanka said: "I think it's great for a woman to get married and have kids. Since I was four, I used to deck up like a bride for fancy dress competitions because that's my favourite look.

"Every girl dreams of it, but in my case, I have not found the right boy for myself. It's true my standards are very high and I haven't found the right guy. Whenever I will find the right guy, I will get married."

The multi-talented Priyanka is looking forward to the release of her much-talked about film "Mary Kom", a biopic that chronicles the inspiring journey of champion boxer Mary Kom.

Directed by Omung Kumar, the film is coming out Friday.
