Priyanka Chopra was recently in India to attend her brother’s roka. The actor will next be seen in Shonali Bose’s Sky Is Pink, which marks her return to Bollywood after four years.
Talking about it, she told Mid-Day, "I have missed the madness of Hindi movies. I don't look at it as a choice between Hollywood and Bollywood, it's the magic of movies. The first thing I did after Quantico was a Hindi movie. My career in both countries is dear to me, and as long as people want to watch me, I'll stay."
On her role in Sky Is Pink, in which she stars alongside Farhan Akhtar and Zaira Wasim, she said, "Though the film is about parents losing their child to an incurable disease, it's a unique take on death — one that celebrates people's lives instead of mourning their death. It was a challenge to go from 22 to 60 after 7 Khoon Maaf (2011). I was able to sink my teeth in the part."
Chopra also opened up about why she did a supporting role in Rebel Wilson’s latest film Isn’t It Romantic On not playing the lead in the film, she said, "It came as a supporting part, and that was never a concern. My yardstick of choosing stories is strictly based on whether I want to watch the film. I finished reading this script in one go."
Complimenting Wilson's feisty spirit, she added, "This is Rebel's first leading lady role after acting for almost 20 years. She produced the film on her own. It is a big win for me when an actress turns around and says, 'Hey, you aren't writing stuff that's good enough for me. I am going to write my own film and be the leading lady.'"
