Priyanka Chopra recently made it to the headlines when her podcast interview with Dax Shepherd went viral on the internet. Her interview created a huge impact on the social media which saw the netizens being divided into two segments. What grabbed the most attention from her chat was regarding the Bollywood’s behaviour towards outsiders. The global star had alleged that the reason she moved to the West was due to the fact that she was being cornered by some big names of the industry. Lack of offers towards her forced her to look towards the Western opportunity, which began with a song, Shameless.
Now, in an interaction with Pinkvilla, PeeCee was asked about why she chose to speak about it now. She replied by saying that now is the time for her to talk about the difficult phase of her life, as she has moved past stuff and been in a really good place for the last 5 years. The star said that on the podcast, she was talking about her whole life. During the last 5 years, she has been in “a really good place” as she has been able to do work which she had been seeking. “So it’s easier for me to talk about tougher times in my life because I am very far removed from them,” stated Priyanka.
Further ahead, she added that she has remained tough and strong during her difficult days as the people around also pushed her down. She also mentioned her parents’ advice that “the world will kick you even harder when you fail because that’s the nature of the human being.” However, the actress believes that when you have already failed and are at the bottom, isolated, that’s when you have to find your value.
For the unversed, Priyanka’s interview with Dax Shepherd prompted Kangana Ranaut to claim that it was Karan Johar, who had worked against the plotting of Priyanka. The actress had alleged in her tweet that the filmmaker had banned her and their fallout was covered “extensively” by the media. She also added that the fallout was due to PeeCee’s friendship with Shah Rukh Khan. However, the reports of any such outgrowth was ruled out by the filmmaker and actress’s representatives.
Priyanka is currently one of the world’s most admired and famous actress and she has come a long way for it. The actress is currently on travelling spree for the promotions of her upcoming web series with Richard Madden, Citadel. The series is helmed by Russo Brothers and will also have the Indian version starring Varun Dhawan and Samantha Ruth Prabhu.
Post the Citadel premier in Mumbai earlier this month, the global premier for the series was scheduled in London, wherein Priyanka made stunning appearance in hot red gown. She was also joined by Samantha and Varun, who dazzled together as they twinned in black outfits.
Apart from Citadel, PeeCee also has a comedy film, Love Again, and a Bollywood film, Jee Le Zaraa, co-starring Alia Bhatt and Katrina Kaif. The movie will be helmed by Farhan Akhtar.
