Was yelled at and thrown out of movies: Priyanka Chopra about her early days

September 11, 2019 | 11:36 IST | CineBuzz |

Priyanka Chopra is a global icon and is one of the most successful actresses we have seen. The actress has taken India to a global level and is certainly a pride of our industry.

Priyanka made her Bollywood debut through Andaaz right after she was crowned Miss World in 2000. The actress revealed that she had no idea about movies when she debuted and was thrown in and out.

“I didn’t know anything or anyone. I was yelled at by directors, I was thrown into movies, I was thrown out of movies,” she said. Priyanka said that what helped her get through the tough days were the wise words of her father, late Dr Ashok Chopra. “‘The more you talk, the less you will listen and the less you will learn’…I taught myself confidence. I learnt it’s what you do after failure that makes you a success,” she added.
