Priyanka Chopra is one of the sexiest Asian women of the decade. She made her debut opposite Akshay Kumar and Lara Dutta in the movie Andaaz. She also worked in Hollywood. Priyanka Chopra won the Miss World pageant in 2000. Priyanka Chopra shared her experience and talked about the failures she faced in her personal life. In a recent interview, she said that she had lost many battles in life. She spoke on how failure does not define a person. One has to move on and calls failure a ‘ladder.’ Priyanka Chopra said,
“No one only wins. I’ve lost many battles. I’ve done many, many movies that no one has watched. It’s what you do after failures that defines you. To me, life is a ladder. It’s never a destination.”
Priyanka Chopra added that we Asians had been taught to run faster than everyone else. She said,
“We as Asians have always been taught that you’ve got to run faster than everyone to get where you’re going. I wanted to be seen as a mainstream leading lady, and not be boxed into the stereotype I saw a lot of, that required 10 years of work…and finally, I feel like I’ve been able to get to a place where I am doing that.”
“So, I think the responsibility is to constantly push the goalposts, not just for yourself, but for everyone who comes after you. For the next generation of South Asian talent, I want it not to take 10 years for them to get the roles that they want.”
Priyanka Chopra, along with her husband Nick Jonas, is busy raising funds for COVID-19 relief for India during the fight against the pandemic. She is an inspiration to millions.
