I was thrown out of films as someones daughter was suggested: Priyanka Chopra
Priyanka Chopra who is quite ruling the world now with her acting skills, humanitarian work and much more, recently revealed about her rough and struggling days in Bollywood. At this point of life, the actress has achieved tremendous success but the start to this wonderful journey was rock-solid for her as well.
She recently opened to HT about her initial days in Bollywood and revealed, “When I joined films, I was already winner of a beauty pageant and still had it a little easy. I got my first few films but I know that I was thrown out of the films because somebody else was recommended, who was somebody’s daughter. I didn’t know people, ki main dinner’s pe jaa rahi hoon and networking kar rahi hoon. I know that opportunities came to me because of merit. I know that opportunities were also taken from me because of these reasons”.
She further continued, “When I entered Bollywood, everyone was somebody’s uncle or somebody’s daughter. It’s very difficult to get inside a production office if you are an actor from no [film] background. I know that it happened to me because I started like that”.
This above comment explains why Priyanka Chopra has set up her own production house in order to give a platform for all the deserving actors!
Talking about her upcoming film, Priyanka will be seen on the screens of Hindi cinema after two years in Ali Abbas Zafar’s ‘Bharat’. This film also co-stars Salman Khan, Tabu, Disha Patani and Sunil Grover and is expected to release on Eid next year.
