Despite International Acclaim, PC Remains Attached To Her Desi Roots
Venturing into Hollywood with ‘Baywatch’ and her show Quantico, Priyanka Chopra has made a mark for herself in the western industry. But, even after all the international fame and glory, she is still ‘desi’ in her roots. PeeCee says she never misses an opportunity to visit Mumbai, whenever possible.
Recently, she left everyone baffled with her no show at the IIFA awards in New York. On being questioned why, she replied, “I wanted to be with my family and friends. We will be travelling to Pune to celebrate my birthday. Also, since my second Marathi film releases through my home production, Purple Pebbles Pictures, I had to be here personally to support the new talent”. This calls for a double celebration for PeeCee.
The actress added another feather in her cap when she was invited to become a member of the Academy Awards. When asked how she feels about the invitation, she replied, “I accepted their invitation and must confess it was so simple (smiles). I am grateful to the academy for including people from around the world. They ask for our opinions. I am very clear about my views and the academy opens itself up to nominations for foreign language films outside of just one category”. We hope for PC to keep achieving new heights and wish her all the best for her upcoming projects.
