Priyanka Chopra who currently is a ‘beauty on duty’ is a lot in news, thanks to her first Hollywood movie Baywatch. PC is playing a sizzling hot baddie Victoria Leeds and we are really excited to see how she bring in those grey shades in a comedy. She is co-starring with none other than The Rock Dwayne Johnson and Zac Effron and it can’t get bigger than this. While talking to a leading tabloid, she spills beans on all the excitement she has for the film and also reacts on the current burning topic: When the American paparazzi mistook Sonam Kapoor for Deepika Padukone. In the interview, she called out to the western press and asserted that not every brown girl looks the same.
Here’s how her fiery statement goes, “That was unfair and a serious case of ignorance. It’s not right, every brown girl does not look the same. Indians constitute one-fifth of the world’s population and the representation of our prolific film industry in world cinema is our responsibility. We have to put ourselves out there.” But she also added that the same press has showered her with a lot of love and also stated that she is extremely popular with them. Well, was this a dig at her Bollywood contemporaries? We are not trying to read too much into it but then, who knows? Here’s what she said, “Just because I am a big star in India, doesn’t mean I should be treated like one in every country. I haven’t seen the American media as accepting of many Indian actors as they are with me. They are wonderful with me.” ALSO, READ: Sonam Kapoor gets mistaken as Deepika Padukone at Cannes Film Festival 2017
