Our very own Desi Girl Priyanka Chopra is back in the city and how. Her Hollywood debut flick ‘Baywatch’ is nearing its release date and so she has begun the promotional activities.
Today, Priyanka appeared for a media interaction in Mumbai and spoke her heart out on various topics. All present in the room seemed awestruck by her aura and her way of putting across her opinions. All eyes were filled with pride as their star had created ripples in the diverse industry.
Starting off by commenting on her journey in West, PC was quoted by TOI as saying, “The kind of films that came to me were very interesting because of ‘Quantico’. You can’t just arrive there and say I want to work in movies. People need to come to you with films.”
On essaying a baddie in ‘Baywatch’, she said, “I have played a villain in Hindi films before but I wanted Victoria to be very different. I wanted Victoria to be very feminine and yet very cruel.”
Talking about breaking stereotypes, Priyanka said, “There has been a stereotype not only in India but also in the West about the lack of understanding of Hindi films. When I walk down on the sets, I want them there to understand that I know my job quite well, which the Hindi film Industry has taught me over the years.”
The former beauty queen had to carefully make her way into the hearts of people in the West. “I am okay walking into the room and saying, ‘Hi, I am Priyanka Chopra’ and introducing myself to everyone in the room. I don’t think we should carry our achievements like that. I don’t feel small when I walk in. When I worked in India for the first time even you guys (Indian media) didn’t know me and over the years you guys have warmed up to me.”
The actress has signed on a couple of Hindi films too. “I have locked three films but I can’t say when I’ll start working on them as I have to check my schedule. I have definitely missed Hindi films. This is my home and it’s been really a wonderful homecoming,” she said.
