I get hurt by controversies: Priyanka

Mumbai: Celebrities are no stranger to controversies, and Priyanka Chopra knows this. Having tasted her share of link-up rumours in the Hindi film industry, the actress admits that controversies do affect her family.
The former Miss World, who has been in Bollywood for a decade, has been caught up in several controversies- a fight with actress Kareena Kapoor and link-ups with married actors like Akshay Kumar and Shah Rukh Khan.
The family girl says that such controversies hurt.
‘I am very private as a person and I believe that by giving a statement to controversies, I am giving importance to them due to which many more articles will pop up,’ Priyanka said. ‘I am very black and white and have always been honest. I believe in honesty, but I don’t believe that the entire world should know about my personal life. I am very private which I think is my right.’ The 31-year-old has been a part of multilingual films but wants to explore more.
‘I have done Hollywood, Bollywood and Tollywood- everything in just one month. I am an actor. Make me do any film. I worship my work. I don’t have any priorities nor am I looking for any big crossovers.
‘I like expanding myself and as an artist wherever I can show my creativity in different ways, be it music, acting or anything. I never take my work for granted,’ she said.
Many actresses like to play safe but Priyanka tries to do what people don’t expect her to. Whether it is playing an autistic girl or learning martial arts, she is game for all difficult tasks.
‘I think I am a very weird kind of person. Whatever is difficult I feel like doing that. My mom always says ‘why stress yourself so much and work for 24 hours?’
‘I try and do what people don’t expect me to do. It would be easy for me to keep myself in a safe box which is expected as a heroine.’ IANS
