Priyanka Chopra and Vidya Balan, both of who are extremely gifted actors and women who carry themselves with a certain panache of their own have always respected each other. Priyanka Chopra even talked once about how Vidya Balan was her favourite actress in bollywood to which Vidya Balan said that she liked Priyanka Chopra equally.
But now in Koffee with Karan, Priyanka Chopra reveals how she was jealous of Vidya Balan when she walked away with a lot of awards for her Kahaani recently when instead, it should have been her who should have won the award for her performance in Barfi.
When Karan Johar asked her the question, “‘Does it pinch you when sometimes you don’t get the award you deserved’?, she replied saying, ” Yes, it did hurt me that year specifically.”
When he went on probing Priyanka Chopra on that topic asking her, “Did you think you were better than Vidya?”, she replied saying, ” “I think my performance was a lot more nuanced and different.”
So it looks like although Priyanka Chopra adores Vidya Balan, she would like to be on the top when it comes to her profession and can’t tolerate it of someone even comes close to beating her. Now that’s what we would call professionalism..!
