PRIYANKA RECALLS TIME WHEN PEOPLE JEOPARDISED HER CAREER

Priyanka Chopra was a guest at The Ranveer Show. Recalling the time when she had faced hardships and people trying to jeopardise her career, she revealed, “I have had people wanting to jeopardise my career, take away from my work, make sure I wasn’t cast just because I was doing well in what I was doing.”

She also said, “In India, we are not people as a people, very few of us are happy for somebody else’s success.”

PRIYANKA SAYS ONE HAS TO SHUT OFF THE NOISE

She also opened up about how she overcame it and said, “But that’s not what stops me. I don’t sit and wait and harp on, maybe I will cry one night when an opportunity was taken away from me, but I don’t sit in the s**t. You have to shut off the noise. Focus on the one person who believes in you. Focus on light, a little bit of inspiration that you might see and that’s the hardest thing to do because you are bogged down by baggage and the shackles of people holding you down.”

PRIYANKA’S UPCOMING PROJECTS

Priyanka is working on the romantic drama It's All Coming Back to Me, written and directed by James C Strouse. It is likely to be released in 2023. She will also be a part of Jee Le Zara, co-starring Alia Bhatt and Katrina Kaif.
