Following the success of her films ‘Don 2’ and ‘Agneepath’ at the box office, Priyanka Chopra expects no less from her three upcoming movies - ‘Teri Meri Kahani’, where she plays an actress; ‘Barfee’, as an autistic girl; and ‘Krrish 2’, where she reprises the role of journalist Priya Mehra. Plus, there is her first album, scheduled to launch this year. More from the actress:
n Do you see a transformation in the mainstream heroine?
I think the roles and characters that are being created are far more powerful and more intrinsically linked to the film than ever before.
n You have more followers than Sachin Tendulkar on Twitter.
For me, Twitter and Facebook are not about the numbers or competing with anyone else. It is a place for me to connect with my audience. Besides, I can never compare myself to the sheer greatness of Sachin Tendulkar.
n What can we expect from ‘Barfee’?
As much as people might think that this is a very serious film, it actually is funny and sweet with a lot of laughs and awww moments.
n You won the title of Diva on a show on Big CBS Love. Tell us what make a true diva?
Mind, body, spirit and that certain ‘je ne sais quoi’! To me, Marilyn Monroe is the perfect embodiment of a true diva.
n You have been known to conquer your fears.
I used to be scared of heights but I tackled that by going skydiving. It was the quickest way for me to get over that fear! I also used to be scared of spiders but after a season as the host of ‘Fear Factor’, where I was in close contact with many types of creepy crawlies, insects and animals, I seem to have gotten over that one as well (laughs).
