Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra graced the latest episode of much-famous celebrity talk show Koffee With Karan. While on the show, PeeCee talks about her global image, turned truly desi, reveals a lot of stuff about her Hollywood life and much more. No wonder, even Karan introduced her as the ‘biggest news maker’ in Bollywood last year.
The episode started with the Hollywood diva talking about her debut film Baywatch, her American series Quantico and how she is managing to be in the headlines at every red carpet in the world. The actor-director had their best time talking about anything and everything.
Priyanka while talking about her film Baywatch, hinted that her co-star Dwayne Johnson, might visit India for the promotions. The actress compared Dwayne to Salman Khan. “He is very courteous,” she said when being asked about how he was as a co-star.
“I read 25 scripts and then said yes. In India, I didn’t do any audition. When I went there for an audition… the sterility of it. There are empty room and a camera staring at you. Now being a Bollywood celeb, I was all decked up. So, the moment I walked in, they said, “we knew somebody has walked-in”. I was nothing like Alex Parish,” she said while talking about audition in Hollywood.
While talking about the difference between Hollywood and Bollywood she said, “When I am shooting there, thousands of people surround the area around. While I take selfies, meet and greet people, my co-stars just click pictures of the crowd because they have never seen the madness of how people believe in what we do. It is totally funny how Indian’s push Americans around to meet us,” she said.
Gossip mills were running high on reports of Priyanka and Taylor Swift’s ex-boyfriend Tom Hiddleston bonding when the two presented Emmys. But denying all the rumours, she said, “I met him for 10 minutes and then it becomes world news.”
On being asked about her personal life under wraps she said, “I have never spoken about my personal stuff. The world will know when there’s a ring on the finger. Till then, I am single till I get married.”
Talking about her comparison with Deepika, she said she is glad more Indian actors are getting opportunity to work there. “My idea was to make it concrete. I am proud of all the actors including Deepika and Sonam going Hollywood. But I just don’t want that we go back to the stereotype that existed about Bollywood there. People there will always try to pull you back.”
Karan asked Priyanka to gulp a coffee shot as a yes to a question. Here’s how she replied:
Kissed an ex after break up – Yes
Judged someone’s fashion sense at a party – Yes

Hit ‘send’ and immediately regretted – Yes

The actress also said she called someone by the wrong name while hooking up and lied about being a virgin.
