The ripples of Priyanka Chopra can be seen both in Bollywood and Hollywood. She has made her fans crazy towards her with her hot looks and good acting skills. She has been a role model to girls everywhere and her struggle to fame will just make you respect her more. She made a successful Bollywood career at the age of only 20 years.
Dr. Madhu Chopra, Priyanka’s mother revealed some of the mysterious facts about her daughter’s Bollywood journey in an interview given to daily local. She talked about her genuine insecurities as a mother of a female actor and laid many facts bare:
“She was just 17 when she entered the industry, so I accompanied her every minute of the day till about three years ago.” Priyanka walked out every time of the projects from which she feels uncomfortable. “So a gentleman meets her and says: ‘Will your mother sit outside while I narrate the story to you?” To this Priyanka said: ‘If it is a story that my mother can’t hear then it is a story that I cannot do.’
“Another time, a designer told her that the director’s brief was to dress her in itsy-bitsy clothes. The director had said, ‘What is the point of having a Miss World in front of the camera if we cannot show her as her beautiful self? Priyanka refused to do that film and also she was upset as the film was helmed by a reputed director. Every time by walking out of the project she had lost around 10 films but, she didn’t care. That is what I say to everyone. This is not the end of your life. Your life is more valuable.”
By the time she entered Hollywood, her name was big and known to all and according to her mother, things were different there. “They gave Priyanka a lot of respect. If you live on your own terms, the struggle is bigger but the outcome is sweeter too. This is my advice to every girl. Do not compromise and life will be sweeter for you.”
While accepting she said that it was not difficult for Priyanka as she was Miss World, she has a word of advice for all the strugglers out there.
Dr. Madhu also told that Priyanka entered film industry as a miss world and this was a very big advantage for her. She didn’t have to struggle a lot as like other actress and also she didn’t go through the bad patches. “The most important thing to inculcate is that this is not the end of life. If you don’t want it then say no. You have many other career choices. Some people may have entered the industry as a desperate measure. My advice to them is ‘stop’. Do not succumb to any pressure. Don’t go against your conscience or values.”
Really Priyanka’s journey is inspirable and we salute her for always choosing to hold her head up high and her mother for always standing by her side. Presently, she is busy in her Hollywood project of Quantico series and she also has some different Hollywood’s project too.
