@siliconeer #siliconeer #Bollywood @Bollywood #Hollywood @Hollywood #DwayneJohnson #PriyankaChopra @PriyankaChopra #Baywatch #RobertDeNiro #Quantico #ABC – She might have become one of the most successful Indian stars in the West, but Priyanka Chopra has said she did not go to Hollywood with the attitude that people will instantly recognize her. She has recently locked three Bollywood projects after her arrival from New York.
Priyanka, 34, said she is fine with giving her introduction to people who do not know her.
“We can’t say that if we are stars in India we will be stars everywhere. That’s not cool. Every country has different celebrities. So, I never expected that.
“I am okay to walk into a room and introduce myself as, ‘Hello, I am Priyanka Chopra. I am an Indian actor.’ There’s nothing small about it, our achievements are quite big,” Priyanka told reporters.
The actress said the American media was never mean to her “except a few” and she never felt insignificant on a foreign film set.
“I haven’t seen them (American press) being that good to any other Indian actor if you think like that. They have been loving, friendly and encouraging of me…
“We are one-fifth of the world’s population so, our representation in world cinema is legit. It’s on us, we have to make sure we are good enough. But I don’t feel small when I walk in a foreign set,” she said.
Priyanka’s maiden Hollywood film “Baywatch” releases on May 25.
Priyanka Locks Three Bollywood Projects
Priyanka Chopra has said she is in final talks to work in three Hindi films and will make the announcement soon.
Priyanka, who wrapped up the second season of her TV show “Quantico” last month, said she will take the final call on the same after the makers decide the future of the American series.
“I don’t know what’s happening with the third season of ‘Quantico.’ I am listening to a lot of scripts. Several filmmakers have come and met me in New York and I’ve met them here (in Mumbai).
“There are a lot of scripts I liked but once I know what my schedule is, only then I’ll figure out when I’ll do a film. For sure I’ve locked three (films). But I can’t announce them till I know my dates,” Priyanka told reporters here during the launch of the new poster of her upcoming Hollywood debut “Baywatch.”
The 34-year-old star has been rumored to join the Kalpana Chawla biopic and a Sanjay Leela Bhansali project based on poet-lyricist Sahir Ludhyanvi’s life.
When asked if she has signed the Kalpana Chawla biopic, Priyanka said, “My name gets attached to a lot of films. But I can’t comment a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ unless my dates get sorted out.”
The actress, who arrived in India recently, said she missed doing Hindi films.
“I definitely miss Hindi films. This is my home, this is my industry. I’ve had so much fun meeting these people in the last couple of days. It has been a wonderful homecoming.”
