      Recalling her early days in showbiz, the actress said, "The first few movies that I did was a Tamil movie called Tamizhan and two Hindi movies - Andaaz and The Hero. They were tagged to be really big movies. And I remember walking on to the sets not knowing anything and thinking that acting was all about the clothes you wear and the makeup that you get done. And then I walked onto a set and I had to think about how to take these words on a paper and make them a person, and that was terrifying."

      Priyanka also shared a lesson which she learnt from Vijay and called him one of the first few influences in her life.

      "I remember Tamizhan, which was really difficult for me as I did not know Tamil as a language. I was learning it phonetically, memorising it, understanding the meaning behind it, and then saying my lines. But, I loved watching my co-actor Vijay - he was one of the first few influences in my life. He had tremendous humility on set. Once he comes onto the set, he never leaves the set. And that's something I do even now. I very rarely will go back to my trailer in between shots, unless it's a really long time that I have to wait. I'm usually hanging out on set. I'd like to understand why we're taking different shots. I like to speak to the crew. I like to be in the mix," Priyanka told the magazine.
