‘I do not consider myself a star’
Bollywood actor Priyanka Chopra says she does not consider herself a star, but an achiever.
In her 13-year-long career, Priyanka, who has seen highs and lows of her career, said she wants to do good quality work and entertain the audience.
“I don’t think any one person is at the top alone. There is no top in the movie business. There is no number one slot, every Friday changes... Every movie changes one’s position in the industry. I believe I am among the top five actors,” Priyanka told media persons.
“There is no sense of satisfaction and if that happens then I will quit. I don’t think I am satisfied, I feel there is so much more to do. I don’t set <g data-gr-id="46">benchmark</g> for myself. I don’t consider myself as a star or actor, I consider myself as an achiever, I want to achieve the best in whatever I do,” she said.
According to Priyanka, the three achievements of her life are - becoming Miss India, Miss World at the age of 17 understanding that she can act and then taking up music as it was her father’s dream.
The actor is excited about her next release Dil <g data-gr-id="35">Dhadakne</g> Do in which she plays the role of Ayesha.
“I had finished Mary Kom and after ten days I started shooting for this film. I had to go on <g data-gr-id="43">crash</g> diet for this film as Ayesha is completely feminine, completely opposite of Mary Kom,” she said.
“I have always played strong <g data-gr-id="40">characters,</g> while in real life I am feminine and I never got to play this part. I just fell for Ayesha. Her character is just like me...except that I am outspoken,” she said.
In the film, her parents, played by Anil Kapoor and Shefali Shah, tell her to compromise on her marriage and Priyanka insists that “love” is an important factor in marriage and there is no compromise on that.
