has been spreading her effervescent charm whereever she sets foot Post Quantico her fame has catapulted to an altogether new level On the flip side Priyanka Chopra has been literally living out of a suitcase We caught up with this versatile actress when she made a whirlwind stopover in Mumbai recently to promote Bajirao Mastani Excerpts from the conversation Ques: Can we call you an international star today Priyanka: Yes you can I have become one But I will always be an Indian actor first and then an international one Ques: How do you manage shuttling between countries at a rapid pace Priyanka: If you are aiming for global domination then you will have to pay the price You can’t say you want this and that and then sit and complain It was my choice to do all the things that I am doing today So you have to be responsible about it Ques: Isn’t it taking a toll on you Priyanka: It surely is taking a toll on me But I am proud of all the work that I have done be it Quantico Bajirao Mastani or Gangajal Physically I am tired I live on coffee But if I don’t do it now when will I do it My mother tells me that you have to work really hard when you are young because later on you will get enough time to sleep Ques: But do you get time to enjoy all the money that you are making right now Priyanka: (Raises her eyebrows) Please where do we girls make money Please go and ask this question to the boys We don’t make money Ques: Priyanka Chopra doesn’t make much money… Priyanka: (Cuts in) I didn’t mean that I do make money And I work very hard to earn this money I don’t sleep at night I work 16 hours a day I don’t have weekends I don’t have Diwali I don’t have New Years and I don’t have birthdays But I get compensated for the work I do and I don’t think there is anything wrong with a woman or a professional for that matter being compensated for the work that they do But if you ask in comparison please go and ask the boys all over the world what they earn Ques: Talking about Bajirao Mastani why did you agree to play Kashibai Priyanka: I blindly did what Sanjay (Leela Bhansali) asked me to do Infact I did this film for Sanjay You may want to ask Bajirao is Ranveer and Mastani is Deepika so why did I do this film I did it because Sanjay Leela Bhansali was making this movie I was the first person to be cast for this film While we were shooting in Manali Sanjay sir came and discussed a lot about the film and he was very clear on me doing this film As an actor if I do a film I will do it with all my heart Kashibai’s character is one full of heartbreak I have played tough characters earlier too like Mary Kom Gangajal and Quantico After long I got a chance at playing a really feminine character whose life is not in her own hands She loved Bajirao and her love was snatched away from her Her pride was snatched away And this is a story that occurred in the 17th century I found it challenging to play a character based on a person about whom history has not much to say and whose story is not much discussed People debate and discuss love stories But what about Kashibai whose love was snatched away for no fault of hers So I liked that aspect in this story I depended on Sanjay Sir and have played his vision out and I am proud that this is a different film I am a big fan of Sanjay Leela Bhansali Ques: In real life will you fight for your love Priyanka: I will always fight for my love Woh pyaar hi kya jiske liye ladai na ki It will be boring Ques: Like Kashibai will you ever accept another woman Priyanka: I will never accept any other woman See situations and circumstances then existed which made all three of them helpless No one was wrong You don’t think and fall in love It just happens So whether there is someone or not you have to fight for your own right and your own love provided love exists However if someone doesn’t love you then there is no point in forcing that person to reciprocate That is wrong in a relationship Kashibai was very dignified in that sense She was like if you love someone else please go Ques: The Peshwa descendants have registered a strong protest against certain aspects of the film What do you have you say Priyanka: The film is based on the book called Rau So you will have to ask either the author of the book or Sanjay this question Infact they (descendants) had visited the sets and had no problems then I don’t know what happened suddenly Ques: Deepika Padukone recently mentioned that you were her first industry friend How did you both meet Priyanka: We had common friends We used to meet at parties and we became really friendly Then she did Om Shanti Om But I knew her even before she started doing films We used to go out for movies and dinner Ques: Is it possible to have true friends in this industry Priyanka: My career has never depended on anyone I have always competed with myself See my films I have never said that I want do better films than some other actor I have always said that I want to better my own performances So I have set my own standards for me to beat That is why I can be friends with most of my colleagues I work with If my career had been going bad I might have felt insecure and competitive I really feel talent cannot be stopped and you don’t have to attend parties or network to find work When you do your work honestly camera captures it well for everyone to see I have done the same in my career Ques: Do you have a good agent now in Hollywood Priyanka: I had an agent in Hollywood for the last five years but I always wanted to work on my own terms and that is why I did Quantico In the Indian film industry I am a big star where my face comes on film posters So why should I go and do something small in the Wes I have created my own identity after working very hard from the age of 18 I was never desperate to prove any point and that is why I chose Quantico because this was something that I was doing on my own terms Even if films come to me it will have to be something that is on my terms which I feel I would want to be a part of Ques: Sitting far across in USA what went through your mind when you saw the Khans being bashed for expressing their opinions in a democratic country Priyanka: It is not just about that I feel everyone has an opinion on everything today And we are supposed to be in one of the greatest democracies in the world And don’t quote me that I am saying this in reference to one incident There have been many incidents that have happened in the last few years not just right now where people have been bashed for giving their opinion Have you seen the Parliament Everybody has an opinion So all I am saying is we are in a democracy guys Let’s just chill Wait a second and think about our forefathers who fought for the freedom of speech and freedom of thought and the freedom of being able to call Indians What are we doing with ourselves Ques: PVR will be distributing Dilwale Do you think that will affect the screen numbers of Bajirao Mastani Priyanka: I have no idea I am zero in matters of production Ques: But you have been in the industry for a decade now Surely you should know something about numbers Priyanka: See if two films come together numbers are going to be divided And it is unfortunate because both are wonderful films and numbers will be affected But I don’t think the audience will be divided And people will watch both the films if they have to And people know the kind of films they want to watch But yes the numbers are going to be affected for both films Jo ho

takes a bow with his models at WIFW Autumn-Winter 2014 Related News Technical know-how and clever construction marked a day of cerebral fashion at Pragati Maidan as Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week (WIFW) Autumn-Winter 2014 entered its second day On display were collections by young designers who have shown more than a passing predilection for pushing the sartorial envelope While Rimzim Dadu and Anand Bhushan took micro elements to make macro style statements Nachiket Barve went from feminine to fierce and Rahul Mishra rounded off the day with more technical wizardry The collections may not have been flawless — with some conceptual pieces even bordering on the unconventional and ludicrous — but we applaud the conviction to look beyond the customary zardozi and sequin saga NO DISCORD Yes we are not a fan of uncomplicating things And we don’t really like technology” — says the Autumn-Winter 2014 concept note for ‘My Village’ While Rimzim Dadu’s initial inspiration for the collection was the complex Patola weave from Gujarat the theme went through a creative process where the diminutive designer created complicated textures with cording resulting in a chic modern and uniquely folk-sy interpretation She took chiffon tore it corded it and hand-stitched cords together to create colour-blocked patterns and did the same with leather In places the chiffon and leather cords were used to create a shredded effect Dadu extended this process to her footwear as well with cords sown on to shoe uppers All in all a collection that tied up neatly Kallol Datta’s collection titled ‘Paranoia Pronoia’ was evidently an extension of ‘Blood Song’ — his art project for a Khoj International Artists’ Association residency Blood stained prints took over experimental silhouettes that Datta put on the ramp Narcissism too reared its head as models walked in saris and shirts with Datta’s face prints on them Adding to Rahul Mishra’s presentation was a special hand-cut paper installation created by artist Sachin George Sebastianthat took centre stage Created in keeping with Mishra’s progressive graphics Sebastian exquisitely translated the designer’s meadow to a high-rise story using pristine white paper PRIZE CATCH Not oNE to rest on his laurels Rahul Mishra not only presented his International Woolmark Prize winning six-piece capsule collection ‘The Lotus Effect’ but went a step further and added some more innovative pieces to the line-up For the Woolmark range inspired by Dutch graphic artist M C Escher he took engineered contigous motifs emerging from the eight petal lotus and embroidered the motifs onto ensembles in pure Merino wool At WIFW Mishra took this graphic story forward in an immaculate tie-and-dye range Apart from its intricacy the feat of artistic engineering was the fact that the bandhani texture was created on ultra-light Merino wool jersey in a “one size to fit all” line A Merino marvel indeed METAL MANIA The geek in designer Anand Bhushan resurfaced yet again for his Autumn-Winter 2014 showcase Staying true to his signature Bhushan used unconventional materials such as steel copper aluminium plastic glass and acrylic Titled ‘Broken’ the collection had Bhushan get his hands dirty with steel welding and moulding and plastic to create an armour-like cover on top of dresses The fragmented black shirts and dresses which we fancied the most were made using acrylic and leather As for the metallic tassles on some garments Bhushan applied the copper binding technique on glass and then moulded it for desired results Our favourite bit about this geeky designer’s line — he used a 3D printer to make the outline of a dress TATTOO PARLOUR Drawing inspiration from the steely femininity of Maori women of New Zealand Nachiket Barve abandoned his hitherto “graceful and fragile beauty” oeuvre and dug in deeper He interpreted the finer points of Maori culture and tradition into definitive design stories Sacred ‘Kirituhi’ tattoos were rendered onto faux leather in the form of laser-enabled perforations The tattoo designs were carried onto embroidery on flesh coloured tulle as well as metallic cut-work accessories that aped chin tattoos The Kiwi motif of the ‘silver fern’ was brought to life by French knots intricate bead-work and in some cases was embroidered on organza that was cut out and appliqued on faux leather Hand-cut woollen felt applique and embroidery recreated an illusionary fringe effect on pencil skirts and tops alluding to the Maori Piu Piu fibre skirts Storytelling met
