Mumbai: Actress Priyanka Chopra can't wait to head out for a break ahead of the New Year. She's geared up to take a five-day holiday after three years.

"I'm going on a five-day leave after three long years. I have been very busy. Finally, I am going out of Mumbai with my friends. I am not telling anyone where I am going. I am just going and I will switch off my mobile phones," said Priyanka.

Priyanka featured in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Bajirao Mastani. She played the role of Ranveer Singh's first wife Kashibai in the film.

"I knew Kashi was a very special character, and that's why I wanted to do this film. I was the first person to be cast in this film. The story is about Bajirao and Mastani, but history forgot to mention about Kashi. The entire credit goes to Sanjay sir to bring her onscreen so beautifully. I have never played such a soft character," added Priyanka.(Also Read: Priyanka Cannot Relate to Her Bajirao Mastani Role. Here's Why)
