One such role that has Priyanka excited is her upcoming film 1980. She has begun shooting for this thriller which she commenced work on over the past week. Priyanka has been sharing regular updates from the set, where she is shooting day and night for this film, to her fans on her social media profiles. Priyanka says that the role is something that has her excited and she’s charged up to be on the sets daily.
