Priyanka Chopra's mother Madhu talks about her daughter's meteoric rise – ‘Priyanka has never shied from taking risks’, says Madhu Chopra
Priyanka Chopra’s mother Madhu feels that her daughter’s meteoric rise has everything to do with her desire “to win” and being “driven”. She insists that it is PC’s “never-say-die” attitude and her ability to take risks, that always made her a cut above the rest.
According to her, Priyanka has never done things on impulse, “She has always taken her decisions fully aware of the consequences of those decisions.” Of Priyanka’s Baywatch role, Madhu confirms that it was originally written for an anti-hero, “She found the character intriguing. She was also awareof the importance and weight the character carried in the script and she knew that she wanted to do it. I don’t think anyone else could have done justice to the role in Baywatch. The best part about Priyanka is that she has never shied away from taking risks. Otherwise, she would never have attempted the negative role in Aitraaz so early in her career.”
According to Madhu, Priyanka has gone by the mantra of hard work in life, “Whenever she felt that she was lacking in a particular area, she would make up with her hard work. She doesn’t do anything unethical to succeed, she believes in working on her flaws to qualify and ensure that she is the best. Apart from that she does not hesitate in taking the unconventional route to success. She is ready for challenges all the time. In fact, the song, Har Fikr Ko Dhuen Mein Udaata Chala Gaya, from the Dev Anand-starrer, Hum Dono, aptly applies to her,” Madhu concludes.
