Priyanka Chopra quotes
# “I have no interest in live-in relationships. I really think marriage binds people together both socially and emotionally and that I think is what is best. I am sure I won’t change my views in future too.”
# “When I became Miss World, I couldn’t believe I had won it. I used to sleep with my crown because I was scared someone would steal it. In a minute the world changed for me.”
# “I got into the movies by accident. When I got an offer, I thought let’s try this too. Everything in my life has happened by trial and error. I didn’t even think I would win the Miss India title so where’s the question of thinking I’d come this far.”
# “I am not into horoscopes and astrology. I have always been destiny’s child and destiny has played out the good cards for me so far. Destiny has helped me find a vocation I never imagined I would be in.”
# “I actually have not regretted any film that I have done. Nothing has been so bad that I wished that I had never done it. It happens with everyone especially in the creative field.”
# “I think for me it’s really important to be working in a film which is commercially successful. And after you reach a point where you are considered a box-office success then you do parts, which are critically acclaimed. Then you reach a point and it’s a balance of both.”
# “I condemn one-night stands completely. For me, I think it shows the level of disrespect you have towards your body, if you’re indulging in casual sex. If you’re in love with someone, it just doesn’t make sense to me why you would just sleep with someone to satisfy your sexual appetite…”
# “I don’t think there’s only one love. In my opinion, every relationship has something new to offer.”
# “I love Madhuri Dixit! Even if I am considered two per cent of her I will think of myself as hugely talented.I also love Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol. They obviously believe so much in what I too think — that is, they are not interested in just going on the sets and finishing their shots, but in living the roles and breathing life into the characters.”
# “I am very fond of western wear. I just like wearing jeans and T-shirt, blue jeans and white shirt is my favourite outfit. In Indian wear, my favourite is Sari.”
# “I don’t come from a film background. I haven’t learned anything about films or film-making. But I have a thirst to know everything about my profession. I want to learn about cinematography, about editing, about music recordings, about post-production.”
# “There are definitely more harmful things around us and I have been having colas since I was a kid and all is fine with me. Have the agencies analyzed how safe the water is that we drink or if mother’s milk also contains harmful chemicals?” [About Pepsi-cola ban]
# “I was shocked and upset when I heard the news. I wish his family strength and courage. The film fraternity will stand by him in every possible way. He is a wonderful person and because he has already served his sentence for 16 months, already I hope the Supreme Court will be lenient. I wish him luck.” [About Sanjay Dutt]
# “It was wonderful to connect with the Indians there. I had been to school in New York for three years as a teenager. And I know how close Indians abroad feel to their home,” [About New York]
# “I have spent almost seven years in the industry and I have had all sorts of experiences. Flops to hits, controversies toindustry backing, good periods to dull periods – I have learnt a lot. However, I dread the fact that there is no privacy here.”
