Priyanka Chopra Opens Up About How Getting Replaced in a Movie Changed Her

Priyanka Chopra Opens Up About How Getting Replaced in a Movie Changed Her

Priyanka Chopra looking stunning on the covers of six different Modern Luxury magazines, available now.

Here’s what the 34-year-old Baywatch actress had to share with the mag:

On being woman in a male dominated industry: “[Once], a producer told my manager that if I couldn’t adjust dates according to the male actors, then I would be replaced because women are replaceable in films when there’s a big male actor. I was replaced, and it felt terrible…Instances like that made me think about how I could be irreplaceable. What could I do to make myself strong enough [that] no one would have the audacity to say that to me or do that to me again?”

On learning to act on the job: “Nobody knew I could act. I didn’t know I could act. When you’re casting Miss World in a movie, it [makes] business sense. So, I learned on the job. Everything I have learned today has been on the job.”

On starting a family: “I want as many kids as I can have. I want a family. I want the smell of pancakes or dosas on Sunday mornings. I feel like it has to happen when it happens. I think there’s too much pressure put on women about when is the right time for them to have a family or to start thinking about who they want to be with. I don’t think women in today’s day and age need to feel that pressure. We’re at such a great time where with science, technology and the world today, you can take charge and have a sense of power when it comes to that.”
