Bollywood’s desi girl Priyanka Chopra is enjoying immense fan following from not only in India but all over the world. She is the one who knows how to make heads turn and also the one who you can look up to. The way she talks about feminism and her inspiring speeches compel us to adore her. She is not only admired by her fans but also celebs from Bollywood to Hollywood appreciate her to the moon and back. Her confidence and ability to stay strong makes her different from the crowd.
Recently, the Star Wars: The Last Jedi star, Kelly Marie Tran was asked to name women whom she looks up to. In reply to the question she mentioned name of women and Priyanka was one of them.
In an interview with the GQ magazine, Kelly was asked ‘if there are any women she looks up to’ and she named a list of women. She replied, “Oh, so many! I love Gina Rodriguez, Tiffany Haddish, Tessa Thompson, Ava DuVernay, Viola Davis, Kate Winslet, Priyanka Chopra, Tina Fey…I could go on and on and on. I hadn’t fully realized, because I am kind of new to this—I had this normal life, and worked in an office for years—that just being in this world, being in the public sphere, takes courage. It takes courage to put yourself out there where millions of people are looking at you, knowing some people will judge and make comments. It takes courage and so much strength just to be yourself, and I look up to women who do that.”
This is undoubtedly proud moment for us, but this is not the first time when PC was admired by a Hollywood star. Her Baywatch co-star, Dwayne Johnson also admitted that it was love at first sight for him. Johnson said, “I love this woman, it’s funny when she came to America… She was over here, signed with our agency, with my agent, we immediately had that connection. We got on the phone, we immediately vibed, we share the same DNA, the same ambition… Not only did I fall in love with her, we had this crazy idea that she would be an amazing villain on Baywatch.”
