Priyanka Chopra denied all claims that she said 'male stars need guts to try for Hollywood'. She revealed that she has been misquoted and her statement have been taken out of context. When asked about why Bollywood male actors are not trying Hollywood, her statements read as, "need guts to try (their luck) in Hollywood." PeeCee has denied that she used the word 'guts'.
Rubbishing all the allegations, she said, "Again, as usual, I was misquoted. When they (the media) asked me why the male actors weren't doing anything, I said, 'Maybe because they haven't tried'. That's all I said. I don't know where 'guts' came from. I didn't use the word, 'guts', and whatever I said was said in a lighter vein."
All PeeCee tried to say was that Bollywood male actors must try their luck and enter Hollywood. She said, "I don't know why the boys haven't. Anil Kapoor has done it. He has gone out of his way to work in Hollywood, but not many other Indian actors have. Try kare toh ho sakta hai (it might work out if they try). Irrfan and Anil are the only two that come to mind."
Also, Priyanka Chopra will soon debut in Hollywood with the movie Baywatch, and is scheduled to hit the theatres worldwide on May, 2017. The film also stars Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock and Zac Efron in the lead roles.
