Priyanka Chopra has established herself in Bollywood as an actress, singer and even in Hollywood television. The actress revealed, “I was going to a completely different country, that too with no understanding of anything, except the fact that I liked television. I had no knowledge of how the industry worked there. So, it felt exactly like how it did when I came to Mumbai several years ago. I felt like a newcomer all over again. But I’m so grateful for the kind of acceptance I’ve got in America. It’s such a wonderful experience. It’s also a great cultural exchange”.

Stating that moving between two continents is really exhausting, Priyanka said, “It does take a toll on you. Physically, it’s extremely exhausting. But it’s my decision. I’m an adult, and have taken the responsibility to fulfil so many commitments. It’s my job to be able to live up to them to the best of my abilities. I am very strained for time”.

Talking about Bajirao Mastani where she starred alongside Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone, she said, “I’m so happy I could somehow promote the film as well. It’s great that Deepika (Padukone) and Ranveer (Singh) are in the film. They helped handle the promotions on that side of the world, while I handled it on this side of the world (laughs). It was a good balance”.

He shared screen space with her in “Mary Kom” and actor Darshan Kumar says actress Priyanka Chopra will ace the role as a police officer in her upcoming film “Jai Gangaajal”.

Chopra will be seen playing a rough and tough superintendent of police Abha Mathur in the Prakash Jha-directed film.

“She’s amazing in each and every avatar. She is very hard working and the police attitude is perfect for her,” Darshan told reporters at the red carpet of Stardust Awards here.

Darshan will be next seen in the biopic of Sarabjit Singh, an Indian convict, who was beaten to death in a Pakistani jail.

The film, directed by Omung Kumar, features Aishwarya Rai Bachchan playing the role of Dalbir Kaur, while Randeep Hooda plays her brother and Sarabjit, the protagonist.

In the film, Aishwarya is going for a complete make-over for her role, sporting a de-glam look with no makeup and simple dressing.

The actor says he could not recognise the “Jazbaa” actress when he first saw her in the de-glamorous avatar for the film.

“I couldn’t recognise her at first, she is in a different avatar. She’s very professional. I saw her and even in the get up she was looking very beautiful.”

Darshan will be portraying the role of Khalid Pervaiz, a Pakistani lawyer who fights to secure justice for Sarabjit.

Priyanka Chopra has conquered Bollywood as well as the world of beauty pageants. Now she’s turning heads as Alex Parrish on ABC’s Quantico and there’s a good reason why. She’s pretty, she’s charming and she’s hot as hell. Here are five reasons why BuddyTV named Priyanka Chopra as the Sexiest Woman on TV in 2015:

She’s Good at Playing Characters Who Kick-Ass
Chopra’s appeal definitely translates to the characters she plays on screen. On the terrorism thriller Quantico, she plays a tough yet alluring top recruit at the Academy who becomes a suspect in the bombing of Grand Central. She’s aggressive, she’s confident and she can do stunts. This is not Chopra’s first kick-ass role however. Prior to her TV acting debut, she played the titular character in the film Mary Kom, an Indian boxer who surpassed numerous challenges in order to become an Olympian. She also played a tough cabaret dancer on Gunday and a woman determined to seek revenge for her brother who was killed by a drug lord on Don 2.

She’s Breathtakingly Attractive
This is already a given, after all Chopra has already won the Miss World title in 2000 and has often been cited as the world’s sexiest Asian woman. While there’s no doubt she has the face and the body to wow on camera, she’s also very pleasing to the eyes even when she’s covered in dirt or down with a fever.

She’s Bold and Sassy
As Alex Parrish, Chopra can hold her own and doesn’t take crap from anyone. She’s daring enough to hook up with a guy she just met in an airplane and sassy enough to call him out later in front of everyone when he pretends he just met her.

She’s More Than a Pageant Queen
Chopra is ambitious and versatile to say the least. Besides earning the crowns of Miss India World, Miss World 2000 and Miss World Continental Queen of Beauty, she has made a name for herself in the Indian film industry, has participated in numerous stage productions, pursued a singing career and now takes the lead on the ABC series Quantico. Simultaneously, she also writes for Elle.com and endorses several brands.

She’s Also Beautiful on the Inside
Perhaps the most admirable thing about Chopra is that she’s more than just a pretty face. She took advantage of her fame by raising funds and supporting charities and was even appointed a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador for Child Rights.

Bollywood superstar turned American TV star Priyanka Chopra stopped by New York this month to talk about her new movie, Bajirao Mastani, which drops in theaters on December 18th. Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Bajirao Mastani tells the story of the ancient Indian warrior, Bajirao, and his two wives, Mastani and Kashibai.

BUST sat down with the former Miss World to talk about South Asians on American screens and the roles of Indian women in Western media. Priyanka spoke about going from the role of Bajirao’s first wife, Kashibai, the one “who gets left behind,” to the cunning FBI Agent, Alex Parrish, on ABC’s crime thriller, Quantico.

You said that Kashibai is “the one that gets left behind.” Why do you think it’s important for her to be remembered?
I think it’s interesting for her to be remembered. She wasn’t sensational. She didn’t come galloping on a horse, fight wars, and claim her love. She was the ordinary girl who just adored her man, waited months with bating breath for her man to come home from war. She was that girl. And she’s naive, innocent. There was child marriage at that time. You were promised to each other, so that the kingdoms can come together, and so she always knew Bajirao was her husband, since she was 6 years old.

She had no choice. It was her destiny.
It was her destiny and she fell in love with him. They were best friends. Their relationship was amazing. He loved her. And then Mastani happened. And it changed [Kashibai’s] life. And after that nobody has spoken about her. Nobody knew what happened to her. So this movie is the director’s point of view of what the history books don’t tell you, what happened between the wars when they were in their own personal spaces. This is his vision of that story.

Speaking of Sanjay Leela Bhansali, his films are alway so decadent and magnificent. What’s it like being involved with that and working with him?
He’s such a stickler for details and I love that because as an actor I love finding details in characters. I really believe that if you get a character right and truly right – because everyone is great in a Bhansali film, everyone’s going to be amazing, like the standard that you begin with is amazing – but if you go beyond that and if you really create a character that touches people and strikes a chord, then it becomes a part of your legacy. And I think Bajirao Mastani gave me an opportunity to play a character with that possibility. I mean, I don’t know if I pulled it off, but she has the possibility of being of like, “Woah, that’s what happened?” I hope I’ve gotten it right. I really wanted to.

You have this really huge following from Quantico now and that following can carry over to your films in Indian cinema. So in a way, Indian cinema kind of owes you now, because you’re possibly bringing in this huge new audience. What do you think of that?
I don’t think they owe me. I think the fact that I had the ability to be a part of a show like this, I owe my Indian film industry. I have that ammunition by being trained in one of the most prolific film industries in the world, so when I walk into a set, I know exactly what I’m doing. I’m not at all thrown off about anything because I’m a professional and I’ve been taught in the Indian film industry, where I’ve done about fifty films, completely diverse parts. I think that I owe them for making me ready enough to take on the world, to have confidence enough to say, you know I got this. And I love the fact that I can give back. Indian films are so much more than just stories. They’re an experience and they’re experienced all over the world. They transcend the barrier of language. I mean, we reach countries like Germany, America, UK, Japan, Malaysia, but our films transcend those barriers because the emotions and the stories touch you somehow. And I’m glad I can contribute to that and get another part of the world inquisitive about Indian films.

Yeah, a lot of my friends don’t know much about Indian films, but when I show them Indian movies, they’re so into it.
My cast is so excited that all my films are on Netflix, like every weekend, “Oh we watched this one and this is what happens! And why did he do that?” It’s great.

A lot more South Asian actors are making it to screens in the West. Why do you think that’s happening now?
For me, I knew I always wanted to do it. I always constantly need to challenge myself and why it’s happening with everyone else, I don’t know. Look at America today, look around you, the girl next door doesn’t look like one person, especially in America. America is primarily made up of people that have come from other parts of the world. I was landing in New York City, and they said some people are born New Yorkers, some people become New Yorkers, everyone’s welcome. And I think playing characters in America now, South Asians are put into a niche. And that was very important to me. I didn’t want to be put into a box, I didn’t want to be cast because of I was Indian. I didn’t want to be cast because an Indian girl is smart, and an Indian girl can be a doctor, or whatever the stereotypes of Indian people are. I wanted to be cast on merit and I was and kudos to ABC for seeing me as a step ahead in diversity. I hope that this helps people see that you don’t have to be in a box and we shouldn’t be.

And Alex is such a great character. She’s totally not a stereotype.
And yet Indian enough, I added some fun details to Alex. I don’t know if most people will notice, but she has a little Mandir (temple), which goes everywhere with her because I have one wherever I go, wherever in the world I am. My crew calls it the shrine. So wherever she goes, her room must have a little Mandir, little Indian things, like my own bracelet. She’s extremely in touch with her roots, and at the same time she’s a modern day, global girl. Her roots don’t define who she is.

Quantico returns to ABC in March 2016 and Bajirao Mastani hits select theaters on December 18th.

The trailer for Jai Gangajaal will be released December 22nd 🙂

Priyanka Chopra plays the officer but, in the meantime, her Quantico image has taken over everything else. “My films are essentially not for people who watch Quantico but even then they will get to see an interesting contrast because Priyanka has understood the ground realities of the character.” Priyanka’s glamorous image is so overwhelming that even if she tries, the hangover is difficult to shed. “She has done Barfi in the past and when Saif Ali Khan can convincingly play a dalit in Aarakshan why can’t she?” Jha counters.






Meet the man behind Priyanka’s ever changing looks and beauty!

Priyanka Chopra has been one jelly’s chameleon in these past years. Secret? Her constant change in roles starting from being a Maharashtrian lassie in Agneepath to an autistic girl in Barfi! to a fierce boxer in Mary Kom to finally donning the role of a historic character! Now that’s a lot of change in roles, PeeCee but we’re not complaining one bit because with each role undertaken, Priyanka delivered a flawless performance. Not to forget even the makeup that made her look her radiant best and perfect for her role. All thanks goes to her makeup artist Uday Shirali! This man is responsible to have given us Agneepath’s Kaali Gawde, Barfi!’s Jhilmil Chatterjee, the fighter Mary Kom and now the wife of Shrimant Peshwa Bajirao, Kashibai! That’s a lot of character changing done in a span of seven years!

In an exclusive interview with the renowned makeup artist, Bollywoodlife has learnt quite a lot about Priyanka Chopra’s elusive and beautiful Kashibai avatar. Shirali explained that there was an extensive research done on the Peshwa’s first wife with respect to the period 1700 and the kind of looks that were carried out during that time. He said that with a strong cultural background, the film also brings out the sacrifices of Kashibai, whose character is very important role in the union of Bajirao and Mastani.

With Priyanka juggling between Bajirao Mastani and Quantico, the makeup artist made sure that the actress looks her fresh best in the film and therefore used a Guerlain cream to avoid the tiredness and puffiness. When asked how he prepared such a look for Priyanka, he said, “Kashibai is from a Brahmin family so the skin tone has been kept fair with minimal makeup done. I didn’t use much of kajal because that would give it a Muslim look. Instead, I settled for a minimal look. And even the eye colour had to be changed because traditional Brahmins have eye colours in hues of green. During those days the marriages happened at an early age and we had to show at least an age difference of 10 to 12 years between Kashibai and Bajirao.

When asked on how one can get the Kashibai look as it is wedding season right now, Mr. Uday said that Maharashtrain weddings have ladies draped in Nawvari sarees along with a Khopa that is attached to the hair. The classic use of a chandni bindi along with dark eyebrows would do with the traditional look. Next on the palette is to make sure that you use foundation of the right skin tone so as to look simple and elegant and not flashy. Always go for a burberry hued lipstain as it gives a nice matte finish to the lips. Take on the world with royal eyelashes and apply mascara to it with no kajal and you have a Priyanka Chopra’s Kashibai avatar ready!

Well, that’s one interesting look that needs some attention asap! So all the ladies out there, fret no more about your wedding look at take help of this article to enjoy a radiant wedding look! Also tell us how excited you are to see Priyanka Chopra in Bajirao Mastani in the comments section below!

This Friday, Bollywood witnessed one of the biggest clashes in recent years. Shah Rukh Khan-Kajol-Varun Dhawan-Kriti Sanon starrer Dilwale went head to head with Ranveer Singh-Deepika Padukone-Priyanka Chopra starrer Bajirao Mastani. While all eyes were on the verdict, the results of the big ticket Bolly clash is finally out.

Here’s how much Dilwale and Bajirao Mastani earned at the box office respectively.

Bajirao Mastani:
While one would have expected the Sanjay Bhansali directorial to fizzle out, considering that it’s clashing with one of the biggest films of the year, Bajirao Mastani maintained its stead and earned in the range of Rs 12-13 crore at the box office. Last heard, the film raked in around Rs 12.80 crore on its opening day, which again is quite good. Had there been no clash, the film would have easily earned over Rs 15 crore and had a much better opening. Knowing its huge budget, the film needs to perform extraordinarily well over the next few days to record a stable opening week for sure.

So as of now, after day one, it’s Shah Rukh Khan’s Dilwale which is leading the pack and Ranveer Singh’s Bajirao Mastani which is receiving a lot of accolades is trying to catch up. Will the figures tell a different story tomorrow? Let’s see.
