While numerous individuals trust that Priyanka Chopra owes her prosperity to her group, the Bollywood performer, who is currently an all around perceived face because of her spell in American TV arrangement “Quantico” and soon to discharge Hollywood film “Baywatch”, says that the credit for her work goes “just and exclusively” to her and no one else.
“I do have an extraordinary group since they handle two landmasses of my planning and more than whatever else, they ensure that no one gets irritated in light of the fact that I am spread too thin,” Priyanka, who was in the Capital for a day to get her Padma Shri honor from President Pranab Mukherjee, told IANS in a tête-à-tête.
“In any case, having said that, I feel that I am predetermination’s most loved kid. I have ensured that whatever open door comes my direction, I give my absolute entirety to it. So the credit of my work goes just and exclusively to me since I am the person who remains before the camera in the middle of activity and cuts and no one else does,” she said, while including that individuals remove credit from ladies who put in diligent work.
“Individuals remove credit from working young ladies by offering it to another person, saying, ‘Isko toh banaya hai’ (her prosperity has been made by others), however my inquiry is, ‘Koi aur kyu nahi bana abhi tak’ (Why another person hasn’t made it yet)” Priyanka addressed.
Asked how she reacted when her former manager alleged that she wanted to commit suicide because of stress during the initial phase of her career, the actress said: “My father used to say, ‘Jab haathi chalta hai toh kutte bhonkte hai’ (when an elephant moves, dogs bark).”
Priyanka’s journey in showbiz started at the age of 17, when she was crowned Miss World. It was followed by her Bollywood debut in 2003 with “The Hero: Love Story of a Spy”. After that, there was no looking back as she mastered the art of delivering the unexpected.
After making India proud globally with her role of FBI agent Alex Parrish in “Quantico”, she bagged “Baywatch” alongside Hollywood A-listers Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron.
So, with her international projects, does she feel like a newcomer abroad?
“It’s a very strange dichotomy with me because even for them, they don’t know how to treat me. In most places where I go or the films that I do, they know I am a big star from another part of the world. I have people waiting for me when I am shooting, but they don’t know me,” Priyanka said, while adding that stardom should not be “announced before you walk in”, it should be a discovery.
“What I am enjoying is people discovering me. They are discovering and saying, ‘What is the fuss around this girl, why are people standing outside to see her shooting in Montreal. Lets go and Google her and then they Google me and find out who I am’,” she said.
The National Award winner said that it’s “fun” for her to have another part of the world discover her “without saying anything”.
Priyanka, who is also the first South Asian actress to win a People’s Choice Award, also feels that the definition of stardom is different in the West than in India because of fans.
“Stars are not different but the fans. It’s beautiful to see how much a fan loves Indian cinema and the actors. It’s so satisfying to have someone applaud your work and love you. I am just a girl but the kind of love and affection I receive, it gives me support. I don’t think any other star in any part of the world will ever experience what an Indian does,” said the actress who recently brought life to the soft and hypnotic voice of the python Kaa in the Hindi version of Disney’s “The Jungle Book…
