Recently, Priyanka Chopra told in an interview that when 6 of her films flopped, she was horrified. He said that I am not a star kid. I didn’t have family backing to support me in the industry. In a recent interview to Dax Shepherd, Priyanka said that she was being cornered in Bollywood. She was forced to leave Bollywood due to politics. In the same interview, Priyanka told that in 2008, when 6 of her films flopped consecutively, she and her mother were very scared.
Priyanka told that in 2008, a magazine had published her photo on the cover by writing ‘Finished’. After this my mother and I were very upset. My mother used to come and tell me that you are turning 30 now. I was 26 at that time. She said – this age is too much to work in this industry. These people need only 20 year old girls to work.
If you still want to work here then you have to work very hard to earn money to survive in this industry, you have to do something different. “I obeyed my mother and that’s why I started producing”, said Priyanka.
Remembering the flop of her 6 films, Priyanka said – 6 of my films were flops. I’m no Napo baby so I was scared. I didn’t have the kind of support that often comes with doing big Bollywood films. There are multi-generational actors here who get ample opportunities to work. I didn’t have any uncles who would make me a new movie just because my last movie was a flop.
Priyanka further said- Because I am not the best people pleaser, I was always worried about how I would get a big role? It is necessary to get a big role, but for this you also have to hustle, if you do not have family support in the industry. I started feeling that now I will never get any big role in any film. This is the biggest reason why I took the responsibility of making the movie on my shoulders. I needed it very much. Later on, this courage changed my career.
