Priyanka Chopra – the name needs no introduction. The ambitious girl from Bareilly crossed all boundaries and obstacles that came her way and chased all her dreams. Miss World, a brilliant actor, winner of Popular Choice Awards for 2 consecutive years, a global star, UN ambassador, and the list goes on! No one defines ‘self-made successful woman’ better than Priyanka!
The actress has battled against many oddities in her career. Right nepotism and sexism in Bollywood to facing racism in Hollywood – Priyanka’s success story is not a result of an easy journey. Her battle against unequal pay cheques and racism is still on!
Today, the actress is making India proud in foreign lands but there was also a time when she was considered nothing in the Hindi film industry. During that phase, Kareena Kapoor once made a very mean statement that hurt Priyanka so much that she decided to not work with Bebo ever again!
In a recent media interaction, Priyanka was asked if there is anything that she would never forget in her life, here’s what she replied!
“Once someone asked Kareena who is her competition in the industry, Kareena replied -Rani Mukerji. Then she was asked don’t you think Priyanka Chopra, the reply of Kareena was oh I thought you were asking about the actress!”
“It was the first time with me and this was shocking to me. That hurt me a lot if you will ask me then I will say I got hurt more.”
Priyanka and Kareena worked together in Aitraaz for the first and the last time. Several media reports suggest that both the divas share cold vibes ever since Aitraaz days. Kareena had even made a sarcastic comment on Pee Cee’s accent on Koffee with Karan! But Priyanka gave it back to her saying that she got her accent from where her (Kareena’s) boyfriend Saif Ali Khan got his.
