Priyanka inspires women to be unapologetic about choices
In a film career spanning over 15 years, Priyanka Chopra has essayed diverse roles and paved her way into Hollywood like no other Indian actress has. Now she says it's her dream to play a man and she is eyeing Broadway too.
At an interactive session titled "Challenging the Status Quo and Forging New Paths" organised jointly by 'FICCI Ladies Organisation' (FLO) and 'Yes bank', Priyanka spoke strongly about how her "Quantico" character Alex Parrish was unapologetic for choices – something that all women need to be.
"Alex to me is an unapologetic modern female who lives life on her terms. She is extremely flawed, she's not perfect, she's a loner, she doesn't like people, she only uses people... So, she's basically playing a man, which is awesome, because girls don't get to play that... And I was like 'Yes, we get to turn the tables'," Priyanka said.
"It's my dream to be able to play a man... That's the next thing I want to do," added the actress, who also expressed a desire to do Broadway as she loves watching theatrical productions when she is in New York.
Speaking on the occasion, Pinky Reddy, President, FICCI Ladies Organisation said, "As a part of its activities, FLO brings together women achievers for interactive sessions, beating the odds, walking the pathways of courage and playing the role of inspirational role model for women around the globe,"
"An immensely passionate and fearless woman Priyanka Chopra is a real life hero and a winner in the journey of life. FLO salutes her indomitable spirit and unsurpassable courage," she added.
The session was moderated by the eminent journalist Vir Sanghvi.
