unnoticed interview of priyanka chopra

Shahrukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra: PC Tells Truth About Affair Rumors

February 05, 2012 05:10 AM EST

Priyanka Chopra has finally opened up about the rumors that she's been carrying on an affair with Shahrukh Khan, and it shouldn't be much of a surprise to anyone that all the talk of her seducing a married father has left her hurt and angry.
In an interview that first appeared in the Times of India, Priyanka discusses her blooming music career, sounding very much like a little kid at Christmas when it comes to how excited she is to record her own music.
Priyanka also came as close as she ever has to denying that she's having an affair with Shahrukh. "I've always stood up for whatever I do and bear the consequences for it. But when it's not my doing, it makes me angry."
"When it's not of my doing." That sounds very much like Priyanka is claiming that she's done nothing wrong. Reading her interview, it's hard to assume otherwise. Though it's true that she and Shahrukh Khan have a very close relationship, that hardly means that they're in a relationship with each other.
The media backlash against Priyanka has been sharp and swift. Shahrukh is painted as the wholesome family man who was lured away by the seductive actress (a narrative which SRK's fans have had a huge hand in perpetuating). Priyanka seems genuinely grieved about how the rumors might affect her relationship with Shahrukh, but says that so far he has been a good friend despite the media spotlight.
"He's always been kind. I don't think we've changed that much. I'm grateful for that."

Priyanka Chopra on heartbreak and the dark side of life

Q and A with one of Bollywood's leading ladies:
How was it recording your pop album in Los Angeles?
Oh! There was too much pressure. I was locked inside the studio where I was writing and recording songs. I just shopped for an hour a day.

You made a lot of friends there, including Lady Gaga...
The funny thing is, she was in India while I was in LA. She’s been kind and supportive. She understands what it feels like to be a new artiste. It’s a completely new place, a new culture for me. But all the artistes I met were kind to me. I’m excited about what I’m working on. I hope I don’t let anyone down.

What has the experience taught you?
I’m still learning. I’ve always loved music and been obsessive about it. But I never realised how much goes into making it. It’s a magical process. Writing music is so personal. I realised that all my lyrics are so dark, there’s so much inside me. As actors, we’re so used to being other people that we never face ourselves.

Tell us more about your dark side...
I’m a private person. I don’t open up even to friends or family. But while writing lyrics, something kept pouring out from deep within. It’s not a persecution complex but I’m fascinated by the dark side of life. I’ve always had a bubbly, happy life. My family has been great, so have my friends, but the forbidden fruit has always fascinated me.
I like doing everything I’m told not to. My mother sent me to a hostel because I used to say ‘no’ so often. She always used reverse psychology with me. Maybe, it’s a need to prove that I have a mind of my own. But I’ve been a little on the edge.

How do you deal with pain, heartbreak and loneliness?
By crying. And writing poems.

Does great writing come from heartbreak?
Writing comes from being inspired, it could be heartache or pain. I don’t like pain but I’ve written that I do.

Was your dad’s illness (Dr Ashok Chopra was diagnosed with cancer) a dark phase?
Yes, dad being unwell is very difficult to cope with. You’re never mentally prepared to see your parents weak. For a daughter, her dad is always the tough guy, someone who hates her boyfriend. To see him frail, shook something within me.

Do you feel lighter after expressing all those dark thoughts?
Yes. The process was self-healing. Everything that I felt was put on paper and it was quite scary. Since I’m extremely private, I was wondering if I wanted to share all those thoughts with the world. (Laughs) Ab sab ko sab pata chal jayega (Everyone will know everything) was the thought bubble.

Is making music also living your father’s dream?
Yes, in a big way. It all started off as an opportunity. I wasn’t really looking for one. It was pitched to me and I found it interesting. But I saw the way it lit my dad up. He was thrilled that I was doing this. I felt I was living his dream.

What’s been your aim in cutting an album?
I feel like a debutante once again except that I’m not treated like one. What excites me is the largeness of what I am doing. It’s a big opportunity, not just for me but for the country. We have so much potential here. Bollywood so monopolises our choice of music that there’s no pop culture here. So, it will open a big window for Indian artistes. We needn’t be restricted to just bhangra. We can integrate what the world wants to listen to. Like when Shakira came from Colombia, she brought in her culture in Western music. That’s what I want to do.

Were there any roadblocks?
Lots. My mood was the biggest roadblock. If I was in a bad mood, I faced a writer’s block. I was pushing myself as I had limited time. I’m doing four films this year Agneepath, Teri Meri Kahaani, Barfee and the Krrish sequel. I had to come back within a month and finish my commitments. Plus, I was unwell. You have to be in the right mood to make music. It was so reflective of my mood, it was scary.

Can you share a few lines you’ve written?
I’d rather dance with the sinners than die with the saints, it’s the pain I choose to try like how it tastes/ If today feels like everything will be okay/ Turn around and realise that even heaven needs a hurricane.

Looking back at 2011, what were the highs and lows?
Only 7 Khoon Maaf released last year. It didn’t do well, which was painful. But I’m grateful people appreciated my work. Both Vishal sir (Bhardwaj) and I knew it was a dark movie and would cater to a niche audience. But it still hurt.

What went wrong with 7 Khoon Maaf?
It was a niche film, not a Dostana. It was a black comedy and we knew it wouldn’t appeal to all audiences. But we decided to go ahead and make this film, an uncommon concept in India.

A lot of people felt your make-up went haywire...
Yes, for the older character the prosthetics went wrong. I’m upset about that as I spent six hours every day getting it done.

Did the film take you to another level as an actor?
I don’t want to sound pompous but I do think I’m alright as an actor. And yes, it was incredible that I got to play the life of a woman from 21 to 60.

How important is box office performance?
For me, box office is king. It’s great that people appreciate my work because I work bloody hard. I make sure I’m not mediocre. But beyond that, it’s not in my control and that’s frustrating.

You enjoy challenging yourself, don’t you?
Not just in films but in everything that I do. That’s one of the reasons why I took on music, although it’s scaring the shit out of me. There’s so much expectation. I’m the first from this country to do it.

Reportedly, you had a problem with Lara Dutta during the shooting of Don 2.
That’s wishful thinking. People want me to fight with someone. I could, I am a big fighter. But I’m not confrontational unless someone pisses me off. Lara and I’ve shared a wonderful relationship since our Miss India days. She’s a nice person. Why would I have a problem with her? We didn’t have too many scenes together but our roles coincided in Berlin.
I remember that one night when we were together, we hung out. She told me all about how Mahesh (Bhupathi) proposed. He had just given her the ring. I was 17 when we first met and now I can’t believe she is a mom. I’m going shopping for her baby, we’ve discussed that too.

How did you feel when Shahid Kapoor praised you in a recent interview?
I feel nice when anyone praises me, why just Shahid? I like compliments, which girl doesn’t?

Reportedly, you walked out of an interview as you didn’t want to be clicked together with Shahid?
The brand I was shooting for stopped the interviews as the light was fading. We still had one more shot to do. So we tried to break it up. People misconstrued it as my walking out. I’m shooting with Shahid every single day for Kunal Kohli’s film (Teri Meri Kahaani)! He’s someone I’ve known for long. We get along really well. So, where is this coming from?

How are you dealing with the current reports linking Shah Rukh Khan with you?
They make me angry and upset me a lot.

How have these news reports changed your equation with SRK?
Thankfully, it hasn’t changed my equation with him so far. But there is a possibility of things changing between us. That would be sad and shameful. I would hold people responsible for it all my life. I’ve always stood up for whatever I do and bear the consequences for it. But when it’s not my doing, it makes me angry. It would be sad if our relationship changed.

Is there awkwardness when you interact with him?
Not really, thankfully. He’s always been kind. I don’t think we’ve changed that much. I’m grateful for that.

This article first appeared in The Times of India

oh, notice. she denied the affair with shahrukh khan, she says that linkup with SRK makes her angry and that when she is blamed for some thing she did not do that makes her angry but when it is her doing then she bear the consequences for it. means she denies it.

It has been very evident from the beginning that the SRK and PC affair was just a rumor. I mean the media always makes so much crap about this and there haters just keep righting and spreading lies.

Good for PC for not feeding the report mills. Props to her. The most intelligent actress in Bollywood. She has some great genes, beauty with brains.

There must have been some attraction on both sides before.I cannot guess how they dealt with those feelings and decided to stay as friends.For Srk ,it was a middle age phase...and for Priyanka,it was living the reel life crush into real life.

Smart n sexy...

Anonymous's picture

OK rewana, I agree with you partially... she is saying she doesn't like being blamed for something she did not do. But still she never in the interview does she say "SRK and I are just friends and nothing more, there was no affair".

==========
@kitty, can any woman say i never had affair, is not that very embarrasing for any woman to say? i think such statement was enough to deny that affair, now the ones who want to see there was affair then let them see it, the ones who want to believe her then let them do, evey one has mind, personally I am sure there was no affair and her denial in such a way assured that for me.

rewana's picture

ans she said before my love for SRK is just admiration not crush

rewana's picture

So maybe she indirectly denies the affair but she doesn't directly deny it. She even directly denied getting a nose job (and the nose job is pretty obvious) so whatever... anyway I just want to say that I don't believe the affair rumour because I can see that it was/is spread by jealous and hateful people.
.--------------
what is the big difference kitty?
no man or woman can say I never had affair and I never slept in bed with any woman or man, it is so shameful, is not it? that a man tries to prove for you that I am good and my reputation is clean not as what you think about me, he does his best to clear the dirty thoughts about him at such a dirty matter and the same difficulity to reply such question or even more when it comes to a woman, like what SRK did at the time of gay rumours which still go on too, did he say I am not gay and never slept with karan, never, he said people think I am either gay or arrogant and when old woman asked me that question, are you gay? I said to her, spend time with me to know if I am gay or not, this alone can be denial even for such a dirty saying, then he apologised to her and said that you asked me rude embarrassing question, how can i reply. the same here, if denial directly or indirectly results in the same conclusion then no problem and it is denial any way, pc did what she can do as woman when some thing like that is told about a woman reputation, she did not deny that when it was told about her and akshay and never commented about that matter. I just wanted to show to you an interview where pc shows herself from inside not only about the affair rumours but also about her self as normal girl. any way I respect your opinion my dear.

very nice interview, I loved how she spoke about SRK here. they are good friends, good she denied the rumours nicely, it seems that she does not want to lose him as friend at all. good for them.

I love priyanka, she is good person. not as I was expecting

@rewana thanks for sharing this interview with us. God bless you!

Allah bless you, thanks.

Trust me, I am sick of this rumour. But I don't think she denied the affair in this interview. She just talks about how upset she is that people are speculating about it, and that she would be sad if her relationship with SRK changed. She doesn't actually come out and say "we are not having an affair".
.=========
and impossible to say that, no woman or man can mention this sentence when they say it was rumour like SRK did or like PC refers her then it is enough denial. I think so

you are welcome kitty but I find that she denied that as she said that linkup with SRK makes her angry and in the next sentence she says that what makes her angry is blaming her for things she did not do, if she does any thing she bear its consequences but when it is not her doing then it makes her angry. just clarify

Anyway it was a nice interview...

yes she did. she said blaming me for some thing I did not do makes me angry and linking up with SRK makes me angry. good to know that PC was not making use of the affair rumours and promoting them, good she denied them.
