No Bollywood star before Priyanka Chopra Jonas has indeed been able to make a name for herself internationally to become one of the first Indian-American stars. Her international fame has prompted a number of actors and actresses to discuss the subject of breaking into the American entertainment industry, and recently superstar Shah Rukh Khan was asked something similar. While the latter maintained that he is ‘comfortable’ with Indian films, Priyanka Chopra Jonas responded to it, adding she’s looking for something that is more than ‘just comfort’.
Priyanka Chopra Jonas has been actively preparing for the premiere of Citadel, a thrilling new series in which she plays a stylish spy. When Priyanka was questioned about Shah Rukh Khan’s remark during the promotional events for the Prime Video series, she replied, “Comfortable is boring to myself. I am confident, not conceited. I know what I’ve been doing when I walk onto a set. I don’t need the verification of executives. I’m ready to work and I’m ready to take auditions. I don’t bring with me the burden of my achievement in one nation when I enter another.”
She also said that when it comes to her job, professionalism is more important to her than anything else. “I am very professional so if you ask people around me, I’m truly recognized for my professionalism. I take pride in it. My dad was in the army, and he taught me how important it is to be disciplined. “He taught me to appreciate what I have and not take it for granted,” she said.
When it comes to her next project, Citadel, it’s a unique spy drama created by the Russo Brothers, who are known for their work on Marvel, and it will have multiple turn series in different languages on different continents. While the American version also stars Richard Madden, the Indian version will showcase Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Varun Dhawan throughout lead roles.
