Priyanka Chopra is is flying high with her upcoming Hollywood movie Planes. Just like the movie cars, planes is an action-packed 3D animated comedy. The actress-singer is very excited about this movie. The actress was at the El Caption Theatre in Los Angeles for the premiere of Planes. The actress was very thrilled and she even took her mom along for her Hollywood premiere.
Priyanka revealed that she is huge fan of Disney movies. She is so glad that this opportunity came to her. "Disney is one of my favourite movie makers of all time. I love all Disney movies," Chopra said. "In my head, I'm Tinkerbell. I'm a fairy and if I could be anybody, I'd be Tinkerbell with magic dust. So, it was the closest I could come to being a Disney princess I think was Ishani," said Priyanka.
Ishani is the reigning Pan-Asian champion from India in the movie. Priyanka, who lent her voice for this animated character talks a little about the character. "She's sassy and she really wants to win a world championship, but she has a really good heart," Chopra said.
"Ishani is so much like me. She is Indian, eloquent, well spoken and sexy. Having worked on more than 40 films, it's so rewarding to literally breathe life into a character like Ishani. I'm very passionate about my work," added Priyanka.
Priyanka Chopra did not want to follow stereotypes. "Because she was an Indian plane, I didn't want to give her an exaggerated Indian accent which ends up happening in a lot of stereotyped Indian characters that I see," she explained.
"I wanted her to be the way we speak, you know, which is the way I speak. And the director was totally cool with that. But I did add a few Indian words here and there- Hindi words and expressions because I wanted her to be very unique to the culture that we come from," Priyanka added.
