Priyanka Chopra is quite happy to have made it big in the Indian film industry without any help and the actress says she’s finally receiving challenging roles.
The 31-year-old former Miss World who has a huge list of big films lined up like Zanjeer, Krrish 3, Gunday and Mary Kom biopic, says she finally understands the industry.
“I have never been to any acting school and didn’t have any clue when I joined. I didn’t have a godfather or boyfriend to guide me. I was 18-year-old and it took me a few years to understand the industry.”
“I am very fortunate that in the last few years, I have reached a point where filmmakers can see me playing all kind of role. So, now I want to have a mix bag of all kind of cinema,” said Priyanka Chopra
In her two upcoming films — Krrish 3 and Zanjeer, the focus is more on the male leads but Priyanka Chopra decided to take up the projects because she liked the script.
“Krrish and Zanjeer are both boy films. But I had no apprehension about being a part of these films because I love to watch them. I am very spontaneous and I do films if I like the script. I don’t consider other things.”
The Barfi! actress, who is the brand ambassador of ‘Our Girls Our Pride’, said her upbringing helped her to understand the campaign in a better way.
“The cause of the girl child has been very close to my heart. My mother is a gynaecologist and my father was a doctor. Since my childhood, I have seen my mother with women and children and she has been a huge influence in my life also. Our sex ratio is 840 girls out of 1000 boys, which is really absurd,” said Priyanka.
