Mumbai: Actress Priyanka Chopra says director Zoya Akhtar wanted her to lose weight for her next film 'Dil Dhadakne Do'.

Priyanka is essaying the role of boxing champion Mary Kom in a biopic for which she had to build muscles.

Her next is Zoya's 'Dil Dhadakne Do'. "Zoya had warned me to lose all the muscles. I was not muscular but had acquired bulked-up physique. I had to be in right shape as I was playing a girly role. I had to work for it ... go on a crash diet and lose shape," Priyanka told reporters here at the trailer launch of 'Mary Kom' today.

"Dil Dhadakne Do" also features Ranveer Singh, Farhan Akhtar, Anushka Sharma, Anil Kapoor and Shefali Shah among others. The film revolves around a dysfunctional family on a cruise trip and is set to release on June 5 next year. Priyanka even revealed that for her special song in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Ram Leela', her 'Mary Kom' avatar posed a problem.

"He had told me I should not shoot in this shape for the song. I had put sleeves (on choli) so that I didn't look muscular," she said.
