A Padma Shri recipient, winner of a People’s Choice award, Miss World 2000, actress, singer, American TV star… You know who she is. Priyanka Chopra . But do you know what she thinks about money? Here are five money lessons that she stands by.

1. Financial independence is paramount
The first money lesson that Chopra learnt from her mother was the importance of being financially independent. “My mom always says that when a woman is financially independent, she has the ability to live life on her own terms. That was the best advice I ever got. No matter where you go in life, or who you get married to, you have to be financial independent. You don’t know which curve balls life will throw at you. Hence, you need to have the ability to take care of yourself and people whom you love,” Chopra says. Earning itself doesn’t make you financially independent. When you know how much money you have, where it is and what it can do, it’s easier to take decisions.

2. First save, then spend
“This habit of saving first and then spending was inculcated even before I started earning—when I used to get my pocket money. I used to save my pocket money. I am not a miser. In an everyday situation, I am like an ant. I keep putting money aside because I know that if I want to splurge, there is a big mountain of money that I can use which gets accumulated,” says Chopra.

One must always save a part of what one earns. The target need not be very high target in the beginning. The equation should always be income minus savings is equal to expenses. You can do this by putting your savings on auto-pilot by letting a fixed amount be invested every month.

3. Seek professional advice
Chopra is among the busiest stars in the Indian film industry. Since her work leaves her with little extra time, she depends on a team to manage her finances. “I have a good team who takes care of all of that. I leave it to the people who actually know what they are doing. I have a really amazing team, which includes my business managers over there (in the US) and over here (in India). My mom heads it. So, I don’t even get into the nitty-gritties,” says Chopra.

The money that you earn and save needs to be managed productively. So, if you don’t have time or don’t understand money management, seek professional help. Your financial planner or adviser will not only help you make appropriate investment decisions but also reset the financial discipline that you need to achieve your goals. A dedicated financial adviser whom you trust can bring clarity and stability to your money life.

4. Be regular
Be it your studies, career, or investment, your efforts need to be consistent to get results. “If you consistently ace every exam or every test you take, you will keep on getting A+. If you study for all small tests, and get an A+ for all, eventually you will come first in class. Anything you do, you can’t lower your standards; eventually you will win. The plan is not the big win; the plan is winning today, right now,” says Chopra. Incremental investments need to be made regularly. To grow wealth, money needs to be added bit by bit. Be disciplined in investing. Besides keeping money aside consistently, take a relook at investments when needed.

5. Keep track of your money
In the initial days of her career, Chopra used to keep track of her money by jotting down details in a diary. “Initially, mom and I used to have a little diary where we would write what is coming in and what is going out just to keep track because there are months where you get a lot of money and then there are months where you get nothing. So you have to be able to make sure that you even-out for the entire year. This was especially so in the beginning for me,” shares Chopra. Whether you have a regular income or not, begin with writing down all expenses. You could use a diary, and Excel sheet or even apps. If you track your cashflow, you will be able to track down unnecessary expenses.

First, I’m still accepting videos for the first part until June 25th so get them to me as soon as possible!

For the second part of the Birthday Project, I’ve had this idea brewing in my head for a long time but held off on it cause I wasn’t sure if I would be able to give it to her. Now, that Priyanka will be in NYC before her birthday I’m going to go ahead with it. We all know Priyanka misses home when she’s away and 10 months is a long time to be gone, so I wanted to do something nice for her.

I thought of making a photo mosaic with the Indian Flag. Don’t know what a mosaic is? It’s one large image made up of many smaller images (see example below). How will this work exactly? I’ll be using icon photos of everyone who follows the site on twitter. You must be following by June 30th in order to be included. If you do not wish to be included just send me a tweet or dm and I will remove your icon. If you have Priyanka as your DP and want me to use your own picture then dm me, otherwise I’ll just use whatever default picture you have.

To see an example of what the finished product will look like click here. (just picture the Indian Flag). I’ll give it to her next month when she’s in NYC filming.






Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has released details for ‘Quantico: The Complete First Season,’ available to own on DVD on September 13, 2016 and now available for pre-order.

Television’s most riveting mystery unfurls against a backdrop of steamy seduction, maddening conspiracies and nerve-shattering suspense in ABC’s Quantico – The Complete First Season.

People’s Choice Award winner Priyanka Chopra stars as Alex Parrish, one of a diverse group of young recruits at the FBI Quantico Base. Despite intriguing personal secrets and complicated pasts, Alex and her fellow ‘NATs’ (New Agents In Training) are the best, brightest, most thoroughly vetted candidates in the U.S., so it seems impossible that one of them could be a traitor. However, when Alex is framed for masterminding the most lethal attack on New York City since 9/11, she must race against time – and betray her closest friends and colleagues – to somehow identify the real culprit and prevent further carnage… because the bomber appears to be working from inside the Bureau.

Revel in the thrill of the chase with all 22 action-packed episodes – plus captivating bonus features – that let you navigate the dangerous labyrinth of twists and turns that is Quantico.

Bonus Features:
‘RUN’ VIDEO COMMENTARY – Take a front-row seat with Creator/Executive Producer Joshua Safran and Actors Priyanka Chopra, Jake McLaughlin, Yasmine Al Massri, Johanna Braddy, Tate Ellington and Graham Rogers in this revealing split-screen commentary.

Anything new on Quantico Season 2? —Barb
Producers are on the prowl for an African-American actress in her late 20s to play a new agent summed up as “Jessica Jones by night, Jessica Chastain in Zero Dark Thirty by day.” Lydia (the character’s tentative name) is described as a “sharp and sexy” prodigy who will do whatever it takes to get what she wants in the field. She also speaks multiple languages including, presumably, the language of luhrve.

A worldwide sensation, Indian actress and singer Priyanka Chopra has finally staked her claim in the United States with Quantico, the hit ABC drama about recruits in the FBI Academy. As Alex Parrish, Chopra plays a promising agent whose world is turned upside down when she’s framed for a large-scale terrorist attack on New York City. The show feels like a mix between Homeland and Grey’s Anatomy and probably would have a place in ABC’s TGIT lineup if it weren’t for the fact that it’s not a Shonda Rhimes production.

While it’s not always easy for international stars to break into the U.S., for Chopra, the toughest transition has been going from film to TV work. The hours have been grueling, filming a 22-episode order, in addition to mastering an American accent that blends her Indian heritage with her character’s upbringing in Los Angeles, California. Oh yeah, and she also does all her own stunts, with the scars and bruises to prove it. “I wear them like a badge of honor,” Chopra says.

Though, the toughest thing Chopra may have mastered is maintaining an emotional balance amid all the show’s many twists, not getting lost in “shocka” (as she calls it) of it all. One particular scene this season saw one of Alex’s fellow FBI recruits killed in a surprise twist, sending Chopra’s character running as she lost all sense of composure. “That was a very organic scene. We had no lines, just direction,” she recalls. “So, it was very gratifying as an actor.”

“I’ve very fortunate to play a character that has moments like that,” Chopra adds.

The success of the show has quickly made Chopra, who recently won the People’s Choice Award for Favorite Actress in a New TV Series, a household name as ABC has practically made her the face of the network. “You know, I never really thought about it until it happened,” the 33-year-old actress says of representing the network, alongside its more established stars like Ellen Pompeo and Kerry Washington. And the fact that she’s Indian is not lost on her: “To get this kind of platform and opportunity, it feels really humbling, I have to be honest.”

Of course, there’s no settling into complacency for the actress. In addition to a second season, Chopra has been cast opposite Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron as the (undoubtedly sexy) villain, Victoria Leeds, in the film adaptation of Baywatch. “She’s a b***h in couture,” she says.

While she doesn’t choose her work based on its location, she’s trying to figure out a balance between Hollywood opportunities while also adding to her long list of credits in Indian Cinema. “I hope in my next hiatus I will be able to do one of each,” she says, referring to next season’s break. “I’m in the process of trying to figure that out.”

In the meantime, Chopra has her sights set on season two of Quantico, excited to see where Alex goes. “She’s grown a lot in season one, so I want to see what is expected of her,” she says, promising even more twists and turns, as if to say there weren’t enough shockas in season one.

No journalist likes to wait for hours for a celebrity to turn up for an interview. But that wait is worth it when the celebrity is Priyanka Chopra. Though the actor is currently in Mumbai, wrapping up her professional commitments, she has also been to Patna, Kochi and Los Angeles, USA, recently, covering the cities in a span of four days.

Yet, when we walk in to greet her, the actor says, “Hello”, with a big smile. Priyanka is her peppy, usual self. How does she do it? “This is normal for me,” she says with a shrug, adding, “My pace is always like this. It just happens to be in two continents now. Before doing international work, I was doing four to five films a year. I always work well under pressure. It’s my superpower.”

It has been a tough few days for the actor. She lost her maternal grandmother on June 3. When asked about the relationship the two shared, Priyanka says, “My grandmother raised me till I was about six or seven. I was close to her. She passed away peacefully in her sleep. If I had to go, that’s how I’d want to go.”

The actor has had to deal with her father Ashok Chopra’s death in the past, and is often seen sharing emotional posts about him on Twitter and Instagram. “His death has been a big blow. I still haven’t dealt with it,” she says. “I don’t know if I’ve healed, but it doesn’t hurt either. I don’t think I have accepted it. I feel like I’m travelling all over the world, and dad will be home when I return. I think grief becomes your constant companion. You just learn to live with it.”

On the work front, Priyanka has been vocal about how she is against the stereotype regarding Indians that exist in the West. The actor has often stated how she wishes to change the same, ever since she got the opportunity to play the lead role in her American television series. Ask her if she has been successful in doing that, and Priyanka says, “No, there’s a long way to go.” The actor adds that it is her “solitary fight” to “change stereotypes” regarding Hindi films too. “India is an experience, and so are our films. The world will not understand Bollywood because it comprises a different style of telling stories. Also, their culture (the West) isn’t as musical as ours. They reduce our songs and dances to a joke, a spoof or a gimmick. But music is in our veins, and that is our superpower. We shouldn’t be apologetic about it,” says Priyanka.

Things were peachy keen for Alex (Priyanka Chopra) and Ryan (Jake McLaughlin) at the end of Season 1 of Quantico, but will that carry through Season 2?

Showrunner Josh Safran isn’t promising anything, but he teases that Rylex will go through fewer ups and downs and twists and turns next season (so that probably means Ryan won’t get shot twice in, like, three days again). “If Season 1 was fast, Season 2 will be slower, just merely by the nature of [Alex] being in the CIA and not on the run anymore,” Safran tells TVGuide.com. “I think, if anything, we’d get to spend more time with the characters and relationships, and tackle them that way. And we’ll see how her new role [in the CIA] affects them.”

But perhaps it’s a person who comes between them… like Russell Tovey’s shifty, charismatic new character Harry Doyle? Is he Alex’s asset? Handler? A fugitive? Her hot car hookup on her first day? (Déjà vu alert!) That would not surprise us at all.
