Deepika Padukone is the face of ‘Hollywood’s Next Generation’, not Priyanka Chopra

“We have had very different beginnings. I still remember I was in school when she won Miss World! I’ve known her for many years and nothing has changed,” she said.

On parallels being drawn, the Piku actor shared that they have different career trajectories, “Everyone will have a different path and a different journey. What she wants from her career will be very different from what I want and that needs to be understood and respected.”

The 30-year-old actor revealed she is paid less than her Hollywood counterpart. “I’ve never been driven by money. It has never been my priority or ambition. But it makes me happy to know that when I focus on the things that I love doing and I’m so passionate about, it can result in something like this,” she said.

    These two women might be completely fine and good people before but their hatred for each other is sickening. I like Parineeti and Alia a lot better. Recommend
