Priyanka: I don’t like being told what to do

Ask the 7 husbands she killed in her last film and they’ll vouch for it – She’s feisty, she’s irresistible and she’s superb.


Of course, she has that shock value too. And if her films weren’t enough to prove it, she’s doing more than just Bollywood. PC is recording her first music album, an international one at that. In this exclusive chat with zoOm, Priyanka Chopra talks about empowered women, contemporaries, competition and co-stars. Read on…


You’ve done a great job of balancing full-on masala films and the not-so-commercial ones…


I do films because I believe in them. I don’t like being told what to do, I’ve huge authority issues. That’s why I do both — big blockbusters and unconventional films.


So you’re the only actress who can carry a film on her shoulders, huh?
Ummm, I wouldn’t say it. But you can say that! Ha ha!


Fact remains that female-oriented films are far and few…


We, as a nation, are male dominated. It’s not just limited to Bollywood. We like to see boys taking revenge.


Even when it comes to shelf-life, male actors over 40 are ruling the roost…


They’re ruling the roost because they’ve earned it. If the audiences want to watch you, they’ll watch you. They’ll give you a lifespan of 30 years if they love you, and probably five years if they don’t…


What about the life span of an actress in the industry?


I think women, in general, are gaining more power. I’ve done films that had no heroes. People feel that actresses can’t work post marriage, but look at Ash who is still going strong, and Kajol and Juhi Chawla who are trending moms. These women are doing films and topping polls.


Have you ever regretted turning down a film?


Thank God, that’s never happened to me. Every film I’ve refused has either been shelved or has flopped at the box office. So I’m quite blessed.
