Diamonds are indeed Priyanka Chopra's best friend but she doesn't need a man to buy them. Instead the need for a guy in her life will be for nothing but children.


Yes, you heard it! PeeCee does want to settle down and has set her goals straight.

In an interview with Filmfare magazine, former Miss World was asked about the new ring on her finger and her response blew us away. "I buy my own diamonds. When a guy comes into my life it will not be for diamonds," said Priyanka.

"A guy will be in my life only when I am in love. I don’t need a guy for anything else except for children," added the Quantico star, reports Pinkvilla.

The Bollywood actor, who is flying high on success, spoke at length about her personal life during the interview and broke the silence about her relationship status.

Here are some excerpts from the interview:

On being single

Does she want to remain single? "Not at all. Of course not. I have always wanted babies. Lots of them. For that reason I want to get married, it is not fair to bring a child to this world without marriage. Society is mean like that. I want to get married but no one can claim me until someone really claims me."


On heartache

"You have to isolate yourself from the other person whether they have been bad to you or you have been bad to them. You start with the little things. 'I need sleep, I need a good book. I need to be with friends'. You have to start thinking about yourself. My heartaches have been bad. There is no good way to end a relationship."

On keeping her personal life secret

"I have a personal life. I don't like talking about it. I am private about it. I've never flaunted my relationships, I have protected them. I believe in buri nazar. So if something is important to you, keep it close to your heart."


On having a partner

"Who says I don't have a partner? I might not be with him because I am travelling. All my life I have never commented on whether I am in a relationship or not."


On being cheated

"If my man cheated, I would probably beat the hell out of him first. I am the kind of person who would get violent. Depending on how much I love him, I may or may not forgive."

And last but not least, her fierce take on double standards

"Infidelity in relationships should never be accepted. Marriage kya hai? Once you commit your heart to someone, have the guts to confess to your partner instead of continuing to cheat on her."

"I would, if I wanted to be with someone else. Because then you are stripping them of their pride. Why do people lie? Because they are scared to say 'I love someone else'."

"It's your cowardice. Don’t be a coward. Walk up and confess. Give them [due] respect because you have been in a relationship with that person whatever it may have been. That is the reason why I am totally against and judgmental about infidelity and lying."


You go girl!
