Actor Arjun Kapoor is in complete awe of Priyanka Chopra and her performance in "Barfi!", and says she is his favourite actress of the year.

"Best actress this year (2012) is Priyanka Chopra. She has done terrific work in 'Barfi!'. She has done a wonderful work. So, she has to be my favourite actress for this year," the 28-year-old said here Sunday at the red carpet of Zee Cine Awards.

Priyanka also happens to be the cousin sister of Parineeti Chopra, who was Arjun's co-star in his debut film "Ishaqzaade", which released last year.

In "Barfi!", Priyanka played an autistic girl Jhilmil. The ease with which she essayed the part won her a lot of appreciation and critical acclaim.

Asked about his favourite song from the last year, Arjun said: "My favourite song has been 'Deva shree Ganesha' from "Agneepath". I think that song has helped me a lot in my workout. Everyday I workout listening to that song. So that's my favourite."

Arjun shed 40 to 50 kg for "Ishaqzaade".

Currently, he is shooting for Ali Abbas Zafar's "Gunday".
