"Best actress this year (2012) is Priyanka Chopra. She has done terrific work in 'Barfi!'. She has done a wonderful work. So, she has to be my favourite actress for this year," the 28-year-old said here Sunday at the red carpet of Zee Cine Awards.
Priyanka also happens to be the cousin sister of Parineeti Chopra, who was Arjun's co-star in his debut film "Ishaqzaade", which released last year.
In "Barfi!", Priyanka played an autistic girl Jhilmil. The ease with which she essayed the part won her a lot of appreciation and critical acclaim.
Asked about his favourite song from the last year, Arjun said: "My favourite song has been 'Deva shree Ganesha' from "Agneepath". I think that song has helped me a lot in my workout. Everyday I workout listening to that song. So that's my favourite."
Arjun shed 40 to 50 kg for "Ishaqzaade".
Currently, he is shooting for Ali Abbas Zafar's "Gunday".
