Priyanka chose a rather mainstream project as her debut vehicle in Hollywood.The actor said Baywatch (releasing on May 19) was a conscious choice as she wanted her debut to have a wider reach “It was a conscious decision to do a big tentpole movie It was my first Hollywood movie People didn’t know me very well You can’t just arrive there and say ‘Mujhe picture chahiye’ People have to come to you After Quantico I got a lot of films out of which one was Baywatch I liked it the most because firstly it was a global fun movie and I have been a Baywatch fan and secondly the character is totally different from Alex Parrish So after Quantico I wanted America to be introduced to me like this in a completely different role” Priyanka said Also read |Priyanka Chopra confirms signing 3 films Is Kalpana Chawla biopic one of them From having her hoardings all over America as the face of Quantico to attending Oscars and other prestigious international awards Priyanka has been in more ways than one a representative of India and Bollywood internationally Priyanka said that the most important thing for her is to correctly represent Hindi film industry to the west and she can only do that by being excellent at her job “There is a stereotype in West about Hindi film industry and Indians in general Like if we have elephants walking on the road or how do we break into song and dance in our films… So there is a lack of understanding So what’s conscious from my end is that when I walk onto a set there I should look like I know my job I don’t want people to question my (work) like do I know where to stand on a set… I know my job really well and that is something the Hindi film industry has taught me So in that way if I do good work and people work with me then the representation of whatever I have learnt from my directors here is correct So I try to play different characters there like I do in Hindi films” A still from Quantico But her efforts in breaking the stereotypes don’t end here as the actor often finds herself explaining to people why song-and-dance is an important ingredient in Indian cinema “Secondly I try to explain to people that songs are a part of our culture We tell stories through our music When we don’t have a scene we have a song But besides that it’s actually cool to see now that people who watch Quantico see my Hindi films too and they write to me… So it’s great to have that cultural exchange” From being a top star to home to starting from ground zero in a foreign land battling prejudices along the way can cause a little bit of identity crisis While Priyanka bagged a lead role in an American show and with it acceptance from global audience she naturally had many encounters where people didn’t know who she was and were apparently judgemental too The actor however asserted she has been realistic about fame and therefore understands that her stardom might not transcend boundaries Priyanka Chopra is making her Hollywood debut with Baywatch “We can’t say that if we are stars in India we will be stars everywhere That’s not cool Every country has different celebrities So I never expected that I am okay to walk into a room and introduce myself as ‘Hello I am Priyanka Chopra I am an Indian actor’ There’s nothing small about it our achievements are quite big Of course people didn’t know me then I never thought they were mean except a few and I know who you are talking about But I think American press was wonderfully accepting of me In fact I haven’t seen them being that good to any other Indian actor if you think like that They have been loving friendly and encouraging of me So I can’t say about brown skin I can’t generalise” she said when asked if she has seen a change in people’s attitude towards her or non-whites in general Priyanka added that the onus lies on Bollywood to make its presence felt on the world map “I think that’s my endeavour We are one-fifth of the world’s population so our representation in world cinema is legit It’s on us we have to make sure we are good enough” she said Priyanka Chopra played the character of Kashibai in Bajirao Mastani Of the last two years that she has been active building her international career she has been a part of just two Bollywood films While one (Bajirao Mastani) had her in a supporting role the second (Jai Gangaajal) tanked at the box-office Doesn’t she miss working here considering female actors are enjoying better opportunities right now “Good films are being made with right people I don’t think so (I am missing work opportunities here) There is enough work for everyone Our film industry is making some incredible films and I get so proud watching them I am not someone who is insecure and I have never been I have incredible work that’s offered to me and there’s enough work to go around for everybody” Priyanka had this to say After giving her opinion on everything asked including the famous slow-mo run in Baywatch (which she didn’t get to do as she plays the villain) one expected her to explain why Indian stars find it tough to take a stand Also read |Baywatch new trailer: Priyanka Chopra’s sexy powerful villain has Dwayne Johnson terrified Watch video Perhaps not ready for it Priyanka’s reply was quite a dampner as the best she could attribute that difference was to “cultural difference” between the two nations “It’s a cultural thing maybe I don’t know… I say what I feel I always have had an opinion and when I don’t have an opinion I don’t I think maybe controversies… There or here everytime public people speak they get into controversies So I think maybe that’s why… I don’t know I am just guessing…” she said For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Related
