Priyanka Chopra revealed why she quit Bollywood.
By Grace Cyril: Priyanka Chopra is a global name now. The actress has made her mark both in Bollywood and Hollywood. For the first time now, she has opened up about the real reason why she quit Bollywood to start working in the US. Priyanka, who was already famous in India, left Bollywood to give her music career in America a shot. She has now revealed that she was not happy with the kind of work she was getting in Bollywood.
In a conversation with Dax Shepherd on his podcast Armchair Expert, Priyanka Chopra revealed why she started looking for work in US. She said Anjula Acharia of Desi Hits called her up when she was shooting for Saat Khoon Maaf and asked if she would be interested in a music career in US.
Priyanka, who was also looking for a way out of Bollywood, said, “I was being pushed into a corner in the industry (Bollywood). I had people not casting me, I had beef with people, I am not good at playing that game so I kind of was tired of the politics and I said I needed a break. This music thing gave me an opportunity to go into another part of the world, not crave for the movies I didn’t want to get but I would require to schmooze certain clubs and cliques of people. It would require grovelling and I had worked a long time by then that I didn’t feel like I wanted to do it.”
“So when this music thing came I was like ‘fu** it I’am going to America’,” she said.
On the work front, Priyanka Chopra will next be seen in the Russo Brothers’ Citadel. It will premiere on Prime Video on April 28, 2023. The actress will be seen alongside Richard Madden in the series. Apart from Citadel, PeeCee has Love Again lined up.
Back in Bollywood, the actress will be sharing screen space with Alia Bhatt and Katrina Kaif in Jee Le Zaraa. The film will be directed by Farhan Akhtar and he might star in the film as well.
