Priyanka Chopra proves how large-hearted she is

By coming out to openly support debutante Sharmin Segal for Malaal, Priyanka Chopra has won the hearts of the entire Bhansali clan. The niece of the mighty Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Sharmin Segal will be seen this Friday in her maiden film Malaal alongside another newcomer Meezan Jaffrey, and Sharmin understandably nervous and anxious.  It was Priyanka Chopra’s unexpected support that has buoyed Sharmin Segal’s self-confidence and proven to the world, the show-world to be more precise, that generosity of spirit is not dead.

Priyanka Chopra proves how large-hearted she is

Recounting the whole experience, a  source  close to the Bhansali family reveals,  “The entire  family is  very excited about Sharmin’s  debut. At this time, when they are  anxiously awaiting the junta’s verdict,  Priyanka Chopra suddenly showed  up , made time for Sharmin in her (Priyanka’s)  jam-packed schedule,  spent time with the debutante and recorded a  video where Priyanka  is seen dancing with  Sharmin and recommending Malaal to the  public.”

The lovely gesture has left the Bhansalis completely moved.  Says a member of the family, “Sharmin idolizes two actresses – Jaya Bachchan and Priyanka Chopra. Priyanka has been close to Sanjay  Bhansali from the time they worked together in Bajirao Mastani. Sharmin would be on the sets observing and learning from her Uncle. That’s where Priyanka bonded with Sharmin. But, the bondings in showbiz end when the project  ends. Not this time. Not Priyanka Chopra.S he remembered to renew her bond with Sharmin when Priyanka was here last month. Mind you, Priyanka had to rush through numerous commitments in India before flying off for her brother-in-law’s wedding.  She,somehow,  accommodated a session with Sharmin into her schedule.”

Sharmin can barely conceal her joy at getting support from one of her role models. Says the excited debutante. “It is the most unreal feeling, the fact that someone you look up to is there to guide you. Priyanka is not just a great actress but she is also an amazing human being. She is the most confident person I know. And that is something I lacked, as a result of bullying in school. And after school when I worked on the sets of Mary Kom and Bajirao Mastani  she inspired me to be confident , no matter how I looked or what I had to do.”
