The global icon Priyanka Chopra is one of the powerhouse actresses in the film industry. After winning million hearts with her scintillating performances in Hindi films, the desi girl has taken the Hollywood industry by storm. The Gunday actress is currently riding high on the success of her recently released film The White Tiger that has reportedly become the most popular film on Netflix across the world. But did you know that acting happened to her by “fluke?” Recently, Priyanka participated in the new episode of Variety‘s Awards Circuit podcast and revealed that she accidentally got into acting.

While divulging the details about the same, the Baywatch star said “she didn’t know she could be an actor as she belongs to the academic family and her parents are both physicians. She was likely to make her career in academics and wanted to become an engineer. But then “the entertainment business sort of happened to her by fluke.” Priyanka was quoted as saying, “I was part of a beauty pageant and I won Miss World at 2000 and I started getting movie offers back in India. I didn’t know what it was all about so my acting school was on set. I learned everything that I did by being thrown into the deep end and I suddenly realized that I was really good at it.”

Further, when quizzed about her role in Matrix 4, Priyanka said she can’t talk about it much and revealed that she has finished filming and it was the first movie that she did after quarantine and lockdown. She also pointed out that she has "never felt safer on a set as it was so well done and so well handled."

Presently, the 38-year-old actress is shooting for Russo Brothers' series Citadel that also stars Richard Madden.

To all of kamwali bai's paid trolls, if she can say stupid things we sure have the right to comment on it. She is a public figure & is pulling every PR trick in the book to stay relevant. And she is not even a private person with her personal life, she reveals way too much so people will shred it to bits. This is not like your beauty conference where you can take our mikes away. Our freedom of expression cannot be curbed just like her freedom to make a fool of herself.

This woman is crazy ! Non stop bragging. In USA now it is all about opportunities for colored people. American liberal media pandering to her now since Kamala Harris became the VP in order to show equality and equity. PC is enjoying her 5 mins of fame everywhere. Hence she thinks she is best at what she does. Can’t stand her and her dumb fake accent.

Why some people like ☝️ are so vile? I wonder! I am neither Indian nor a fan of Priyanka Chopra, but still being from the same part of the world, have high regards for both of these women for what they have achieved in their respective fields. And some are spending their ugly precious breath taking nasty about others. Shame on them.

Wait did she say she realized she is she is 'really good at it'? OMG woman take several seats you are not really good at acting, you are not even mediocre. In fact you are one of those actresses who cannot act for goodness sake. Quantico was cancelled because of your poor acting. Your delusional head is getting bigger each day
