Priyanka Chopra praises Shah Rukh Khan

Pyaar Impossible star Priyanka Chopra has hailed her former co-star Shah Rukh Khan as her “idol”.

Chopra, who was last seen in What’s Your Rashee?, praised the Bollywood superstar for climbing his way to the top of the industry.

She told IANS: “Shah Rukh Khan is my idol and has always been. He has been a favourite actor of course, but I really look up to him also as a person. Looking at where he came from and how he became who he is today, I find it extremely fascinating.

“He started with theatre, did plays, got a break in TV – he turned from a regular college kid to a mega superstar… and all that completely on his own with no help from anybody in the film industry. I admire a lot about him and I think it’s just fantastic.”

Chopra and Khan have previously appeared on screen together in Farhan Akhtar’s Don.
