However, Priyanka Chopra in an interview gets candid about her equation with Deepika Padukone.
When quipped, she said, “Earlier you all (media) used to write we are BFFs (best friends forever) so why and how did this change. I did not say it (equation) has changed. You only said it has changed. I am clarifying whatever it was earlier, it is same today also. Your (media) perspective has changed and that shouldn’t have happened.”
Priyanka Chopra also added that she opened doors for actors down West. “It doesn’t make sense for me to answer on someone else. I don’t pay attention to what others are doing. My career has been very solitary. My career has nothing to do with the success and failure of others. I hope the way I am trying to open doors for others (Indian actors) by representing Indian film industry in the west, a lot of South Asian actors too get an entry on global level. Whoever gets good work I will always wish them well. I would wish them more success than me.”
It is also buzzed that at the last moment Priyanka and Deepika’s joint
performance was cancelled at the IIFA event, to wish Priyanka said that she has
no idea why her couple dance performance with Deepika at a recently concluded
award function was cancelled at the last moment.
