Hollywood has opened its doors to many Indian stars who are bagging noticeable roles in various projects. A case in point is Deepika Padukone.
Priyanka Chopra, one of the most popular exports to Hollywood from India, says gone are the days when actors used to feel insecure with others' success.
It's Not In My DNA
"That is such an age-old stereotype and definitely not in my DNA," Priyanka told IANS when asked if actors today have become more open when it comes to appreciating the work of their colleagues, unlike the common perception that they have cat fights due to jealousy.
I'm Very Secure
"I'm very secure in who I am and the work I do. These are my friends and colleagues, and I like to share in their achievements and happiness.''
We Don't Live In The Dark Ages
''Good work should be applauded. I believe that there is enough work out there for everyone. We don't live in the dark ages any more.''
2017 Has Begun Well
"2017 has begun well. To win a second People's Choice Award, this time as a Favourite Dramatic TV Actress, is an awesome feeling.''
Winning An Award From The People Is A Vindication
''Winning an award from the people, the audience, is a vindication that both Quantico and my character connected globally. Also, when I see the amazingly talented women I was nominated with, it feels like I must be doing something right. As for the rest of the year, I'm looking forward to it."
I Have Lots Of Exciting Projects Lined Up
"Baywatch releases on May 26 and we will be promoting the film across the globe. As a producer with my production house Purple Pebble Pictures, I have a lot of exciting projects lined up across genres and languages. Many announcements are on the anvil on that front.''
I Have To Believe In A Brand To Endorse It
"I have to believe in a brand to endorse it. I look at products that I endorse as a consumer... Is it something I would use, do I like what it offers? If my name and brand are being used to advertise a product, then it's something I believe in.''
Priyanka Chopra added, "I just want to be the best version of myself as an entertainer and as an individual. I want to try new things, explore all aspects of my creative self and basically have an adventure every day. I have always believed that it's never about the destination... The journey matters more," she said.
