It's been a few months since the release of 'Barfi!', for which Priyanka Chopra earned acclaim for her portrayal of the young autistic girl Jhilmil.

Now the actress wants to preserve something that will maintain her connection with her character and the film for years to come.

It is learnt that she is keen to keep the yellow sari she wore in the movie as her personal memorabilia, Times of India reports.

According to a source close to the actress, "Priyanka considers Barfi as something very special that happened to her. And that's why she wants to preserve the sari she wore in the movie, to add to her special collection. So she has also conveyed her wish to the film's director Anurag Basu, and she's now looking forward to getting it from him soon."

Interestingly, her family too considers Barfi a special film for Priyanka. So much so that her father, Dr Ashok Chopra even calls her Jhilmil at times. "In fact, when he's in a very affectionate mood, he calls PC as 'meri pyaari Jhilmil'," adds our source.

Barfi, which toplined Ranbir Kapoor in the title role, playing a deaf-mute character and Ileana D'Cruz, had been chosen as India's official entry for the upcoming Academy Awards. However, it failed to make it to the nine shortlisted for the Best Foreign Film category, for which Priyanka expressed her disappointment recently.
