After showcasing her svelte figure in films like 'Fashion' and 'Dostana', Priyanka Chopra is set to sport a grungy look to host Colors' adventure reality show 'Fear Factor - Khatron Ke Khiladi 3'.
The 28-year-old actress wore denim hot pants teamed with a broad belt, knee-length boots, a cropped yellow top with a black leather biker jacket and gloves for the first promo.
Her look has been created by Bollywood stylist and fashion designer Anaita Shroff Adajania, who earlier styled for the 'Dhoom' franchise as well as 'Race'.
'Khatron Ke Khiladi 3' will have 13 male celebrities competing against each other on dangerous tasks in Brazil.
And Priyanka is looking forward to providing a huge distraction to the male contestants. "That's what my intention is. To make them so distracted they won't be able to do their stunts," she says.
Priyanka, who's just returned from shooting the stunts in Bangkok, says she's super-excited. "I rode a dirt bike. I shot with an alligator and a bull. It was fun."
After a rejuvenating birthday holiday in Phuket, Priyanka flew to Bangkok to shoot the promotional video for the reality show.
About the holiday, Priyanka says: "Apart from the mishap that happened when I dropped my phone in the water and couldn't receive any birthday greetings, I had a fun time."
"I was generally not recognised. But even if I was I didn't mind. Being recognised is part and parcel of what I do," she says.
The stunts involved a motorbike race where Priyanka challenged a group of youngsters to a race through terrain that would scare even a Grand Prix winner.
She had to ride through some of the most impossibly-rugged terrain. The male motorbikers were professional riders who can ride at high speed through the most rugged hinterland, according to crew members.
The actress had been secretly practising for the heart-in-the-mouth motorbike stunts for weeks.
The channel had offered to get a body-double to do the really intricate portions. But Priyanka insisted on doing the entire motorbike stunt-stint on her own.
So excited and charged did she get that she shot for a full 20 hours on the first of the two days of shooting in Bangkok.
"There is no challenge in half-measures. You either do the whole thing or don't do it at all. I've always been fascinated by mobikes. I love mobike stunts," she says.
"When I had seen Tom Cruise do the mobike stunts first, all I thought was, 'Gawd if only I could get to do that.' I guess my wish came true," she adds.
The ride was not all fun and games. Priyanka has returned to Mumbai with quite a number of bruises. "But the pain was worth it. You can't be one of the boys on the bike and not get your share of bruises," she says.
The first look is expected to air on the channel early next week. It shows Priyanka in a chase sequence on bikes with male bikers.
She intends to wrap up all her assignments by October before heading for the shooting of 'Don 2' in Berlin.
