Mumbai: Priyanka Chopra in an interview with Vogue India has opened up about how much unpleasantness and yelling she had to deal in the beginning of her career.
“I didn’t know anything or anyone. I was yelled at by directors, I was thrown into movies, I was thrown out of movies,” she said. Priyanka said that what helped her get through the tough days were the wise words of her father, late Dr Ashok Chopra. “‘The more you talk, the less you will listen and the less you will learn’…I taught myself confidence. I learnt it’s what you do after failure that makes you a success,” she added.
Priyanka made her acting debut after she won the Miss World crown in 2000 opposite Akshay Kumar and Lara Dutta in Andaaz.
On the professional front, Priyanka is also co-producing The Sky Is Pink, which is a love story of a couple – Aditi and Niren Chaudhary – who lose their daughter to pulmonary fibrosis, a serious immune disease. It also stars Farhan Akhtar and Zaira Wasim. The film is slated to release worldwide October 11.
