‘I have ambitions, and work hard to achieve them’
Actor Priyanka Chopra has made a name for herself both nationally and internationally, and says she has ambitions and works very hard to achieve them.
The former Miss World made her Bollywood debut with The Hero. The National Award-winning actor has become a household name not only in India, but globally too with her American TV show Quantico.
"My life is pretty much same as everyone else's, in the sense that I have dreams and ambitions and work very hard to achieve them," said Priyanka.
"We each of us have our own personal struggles of trying to maintain the balance, finding time for ourselves, investing in our relationships and being the best person you can be...I'm also human," she said.
Priyanka has turned co-producer and joined hands with nexGTv, a subscription-driven video entertainment mobile App, and celebrity digital network Fluence, to create a 14-part mobi-series It's My City. It premiered on January 22.
"The creation of this show is more a collaborative effort than anything else between nexGTV, Fluence Endemol and Purple Pebble Pictures. It was the similarity in our thinking and our collective hunger to do something new and exciting that sealed the deal for me," the Fashion star said.
It's My City revolves around the everyday lives and struggles of four young girls Manika, Sonali, Tina and Nikki living together in the same flat in Mumbai.
The series captures the trials and tribulations, ups and downs of these girls as they set out to achieve their dreams and conquer the world.
"The concept of four different people, with different backgrounds coming together under one roof and becoming a sort of family is something that you see very often in Mumbai. I myself have had a similar experience in this amazing city," she said.
"Mumbai and Bollywood have been extremely kind and generous to me and have in many ways shaped who I am today. I will be forever grateful," she added.
