Actress Priyanka Chopra, who recently gave a masterclass at the 2023 Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival, revealed that she got into a position to pick and choose films only after the release of the 2006 film Krrish.
Priyanka Chopra REVEALS she got the right to pick films after Krrish; “Before that, there was always…”
Speaking to actor Bhumi Pednekar, Priyanka said, "Many, many films later. I think around the first Krrish maybe, somewhere there. Before that, there was always, ‘Oh my God, what’s the next one I am going to do? What opportunity is going to come to me?’ I picked from what came to me."
PeeCee also added that she started seeking work that would challenge her after Krrish, as she had already done films like Aitraaz and gained critical acclaim.
"After the first Krrish, because I had just done Aitraaz as well, I had done work which gave me a solid foundation. I got critical acclaim. I had people telling me that I knew my job even though I didn’t know that I knew my job. But that was a very clear time when I started seeking work that would challenge me," the 41-year-old actress said.
However, Priyanka Chopra’s moment of glory arrived when she starred in the Madhur Bhandarkar directorial Fashion. For the unversed, Priyanka also won a National Award for her performance. At the time, many warned Priyanka against playing the lead in a female-oriented movie.
“Fashion was a time when I made that decision. It was right around Krrish that Madhur sir and I met. At that time, I was told that “Girls do female-oriented roles towards the end of their careers to get a National award. You have just started. Why are you doing it?” In that era, this was not common. This is early 2005 or 2006. But I just didn’t know any better,” she said.
Priyanka Chopra will next be seen in the Hollywood film Heads of State with Idris Elba and John Cena.
