India’s global star Priyanka Chopra is an actress who has always made her country proud. With the runaway success of her American TV show ‘Quantico’, which has seen three successful seasons, the talented actress cemented her position in Hollywood as well. If you look at the choices she is making as an actress now, it becomes clear that she has decided to win more laurels on foreign shores.
In her latest interaction with media in Delhi, the ‘Bajirao Mastani’ (2015) actress said that she is not going to do any run-of-the-mill roles be it in Hollywood or Bollywood. She says Indian actors just cannot play sidekicks in Hollywood projects. “I am playing characters which have nothing to do with my ethnicity which I feel will open the door for Indian talent or South Asian talent to become mainstream which will open the door for people to see us as mainstream entertainment in global movies, why do we only have to play the sidekick.”
The talented actress also made it clear that she is not ready to play second fiddle in films anymore. Henceforth, she will just do lead roles in movies and she won’t compromise on that. “I’m going to play the leading lady and I’m not going to compromise on that, simple,” said the actor.
Priyanka Chopra, whose last Hindi movie was ‘Jai Gangaajal’ (2016), recently opted out of Salman Khan’s much-talked-about film ‘Bharat’, which shocked many people in the male-dominated industry. The actress will next be seen in the Chris Pratt starrer Hollywood flick ‘Cowboy Ninja Viking’.
