Priyanka Chopra is tipped to pick up the Best Supporting Actress gong at this weekend’s International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Awards, but she currently hasn’t signed any more Hindi films.

Instead, Chopra has spent most of this year in the US, shooting for her debut Hollywood movie – the Baywatch reboot – opposite Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Zac Efron.

She has starred in more than 50 Indian films since being crowned Miss World in 2000.

After a short stint as a Universal Music Group recording artist, Chopra found wide fame in America when she signed a talent holding deal with ABC Studios, leading to her television debut in Quantico.

The crime thriller has been renewed for a second season and bagged Chopra the Favourite Actress in a New TV Series gong at this year’s People’s Choice Awards.

But despite her success, Chopra says she wouldn’t describe herself as “a Hollywood star” just yet.

“I’m still very new, I’m not even a year old in America,” she told the BBC.

“I may be on the cover of Time [Magazine] because of 100 most influential, People’s Choice Awards, Teen Choice Awards but I think there is such a long way to go.”

‘Indian actors are not a joke’
Chopra now hopes that she can use her wider profile to make Indian Cinema more accessible in the west.

“To convince another part of the world that Bollywood is not just jokers who break in to song and dance was very difficult. I’m literally ploughing the ground and making people understand that Indian actors are not a joke.”

Her time in America has also made her appreciate the campaigning of performers such as Amitabh Bachchan and Shabana Azmi who want to denounce the use of the term Bollywood.

“People think we’re a spoof of Hollywood and we’re not. We’re one of the most prolific film industries in the world. We speak Hindi which is spoken in one country, but 40% of our business comes from outside of India.”

In the last five years, Chopra has been at her most experimental in terms of Bollywood roles. She’s played an autistic girl, a boxer and a policewoman; all ground breaking female characters.

“We want our brains to be stimulated, we want to be entertained, otherwise we’ll not watch it. So now content is king, content is most important because now Indian films are also competing with content from around the world.”

Although Chopra says she has only just begun in the States, she’s certainly on the right path to stardom.

In the Baywatch reboot, she plays the antagonist – and she loves the role.

“First of all, my character Victoria was written for a man and second of all, it’s so good to be bad. My character is just evil, delectable and mean.”

‘Art is collaboration’
Deepika Padukone is another Bollywood star who is gearing up for her Hollywood debut. She will be starring alongside Vin Diesel in xXx: The Return of Xander Cage.

Chopra believes the rising number of actresses exploring options globally is a great thing.

“So many people from the west are coming in to India, all the studios have come in to India and they’re making films here, whether that’s Fox, Warner Bros, Disney, everyone. That stands as testament for us so why are we afraid of sharing our talent with the world? We must.”

Nonetheless, some critics fear that Hollywood’s growing presence in South Asia could be detrimental for the existing film industry. Most recently, Hollywood has begun regularly using Bollywood A-Listers to dub over big blockbusters in Hindi. Chopra replaced Scarlett Johansson in The Jungle Book.

However, she says such collaboration is a good thing.

“Art is collaboration, we are artists all over the world. I believe that people are always going to watch Hindi films… that’s never going to die, but I think it’s amazing that collaborations like that are happening.”

In the past, Bollywood actresses have been limited with offers in America.

Another former beauty queen, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, starred in Gurinder Chadha’s Bride & Prejudice in 2004 and also appeared alongside Steve Martin in the 2009 comedy, The Pink Panther 2.

However, her refusal to do sex scenes or scenes with nudity saw her lose out on big blockbusters like Brad Pitt’s Troy.

Chopra’s conditions for choosing films are different.

“I always look for the same thing which is a story that I would want to go watch and a character that would inspire me and women around the world.”

And she now hopes to “divide [her] work” between both film industries, getting the best of both worlds.

“I’m going to be doing one Hindi film and one film in America probably.”


Her journey from being a beauty queen, a Bollywood star, an international singer and to now a Hollywood actress has been a great success story but Priyanka Chopra is not reading too much into it as she says all the fame and glory will go away one day.

The 33-year-old actress’ dream career in the west began with the launch of her single In My City in 2012, which was followed by her leading role on American TV series Quantico.

There has been no looking back for Priyanka since then and she will soon make her Hollywood debut with Baywatch, as its main antagonist.

Of success and fame, Priyanka said the following in an interview on the sidelines of International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Awards:

#1 I believe that you have to be who you are.

#2 I don’t take success for granted. Nobody should.

#3 It goes away in a wink. I am sure it will go away with me also.

#4 But I am someone who is an achiever, so you just have to be able to evolve into different things

The Bajirao Mastani star said times have changed today and opportunities galore for people who are ready to grab it with both hands.


Priyanka Chopra makes juggling major projects in Bollywood and Hollywood look like a cakewalk.

But ABC’s Quantico star, who has also been nominated in the Best Actress category for Dil Dhadakne Do and in the Best Supporting Actress category for her role in Bajirao Mastani at this year’s International Indian Film Awards (IIFA), says moving between two continents for her on screen commitments has been hectic but satisfying at the same time.

“I love what I do and I don’t take my career for granted,” says the 33-year-old actress during an interview at IIFA in Madrid, Spain. Chopra will be performing at the awards night tomorrow.

“Nobody can just sit down and say, ‘come and hand me success.’ It doesn’t happen. You have to work hard for it.”

Chopra, who made it to the Time magazine’s 100 most influential people’s list this year, says that shooting for the second season of Quantico, in which she plays the lead FBI agent Alex Parrish who is a prime suspect in a terrorist attack, will begin in July.

“The show has moved to New York,” says the actress. “So you’ll see me running on the roads somewhere saving the city. It should be fun.”

She says it will also be very different from the last season because some of the cast members will not be returning for the next season. “The new season will have the same flash forward and flashback format but this time it will be about how Alex’s choices will affect all her relationships. Everyone from the cast doesn’t come back for Season 2,” she says.

Chopra also makes her Hollywood debut with the film reboot of the nine-season hit television soap drama Baywatch that aired in the 90s. Chopra plays Victoria Leeds, the main antagonist in the film about Los Angeles County lifeguards that will release in 2017.

Chopra, who has wrapped up the shoot for the film, says she was initially offered a small part but after some discussions with the creative team she ended up taking on the role “reserved for a key male villain with my own spin to it.”

The actress says New York scares her. “It’s a bit like Mumbai. It’s spirit is like Mumbai.”

The superstar says she was on a tight schedule while shooting Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani and the TV show Quantico. “ I shot Bajirao with Quantico,” she says.

“I used to fly from the US to India on the weekends to shoot each scene. I would fly from New York on Friday and arrive in Mumbai on Sunday, shoot full day with Sanjay sir and then fly back to the US to shoot Quantico on Monday.”

Chopra says she will continue to look for varied characters to keep it fresh in her career. “My filmography will reveal that I only look for different characters. I don’t like repeating roles. I’m not a method actor. I like being spontaneous and instinctive. So I create characters while I know so well that you can give me any scene and I know exactly how they’ll turn out. I know them like my best friends. It’s not difficult for me to jump from one to the other.”

She says she has her sights sets on much bigger projects, not just in India and Hollywood. “I love Hindi movies but I also love the work that I am doing in American, so I want to be able to do both. I don’t want the best of both worlds, I want the whole world.”

IIFA awards will take place in Spain, Madrid tomorrow (Saturday). The show will be aired on Colors TV in the UAE on July 10.​


She is 33, and is a proud recipient of the Padma Shri and a People’s Choice Award – and has made huge inroads into Hollywood. Actress Priyanka Chopra has advised youngsters to push their boundaries.

“You have to be who you are. You just have to be able to evolve to do different things and people shouldn’t restrict themselves.

“You should not shut yourself and your possibilities,” Priyanka told the media here on the sidelines of the ongoing International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) celebrations here.

Priyanka, who has gained global recognition with her stint in the American TV show “Quantico”, will next be seen starring in the international movie “Baywatch” along with Hollywood stars like Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron.

She will be seen playing a negative character named Victoria Leeds in the film.

As of now, she can’t wait to perform at the 17th edition of IIFA.

“I am very happy to be here as I believe that whenever the film industry comes together, it’s such a unique feeling. We take our film industry through this platform. Also, performing on stage is exhilarating,” she said.

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.
