Real life star: Vivek Agnihotri’s thoughts Priyanka: Rarely do people give up and create their own successful world
Director Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri addressed Priyanka Chopra Jonas’s statements that she felt “pushed into a corner” and left Bollywood. She was a real-life star, he added, and only a select handful go on to create their own successful universe.
Priyanka said it for the first time on Dax Shepherd’s podcast Armchair Expert because she felt “safe” talking to him. She explained that she had “beef with people” in Bollywood, and that was one reason she wanted to work in the United States.
When huge bullies bully, some bend down, some surrender, some give up and leave, some take drugs, and a few have lost their lives as well,” Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri commented in response to a news report. Very few people stand up to the “impossible to defeat” gang of bullies and create their own successful cosmos. Those people are the stars in real life.
Priyanka remarked in the podcast, “I was being pushed into a corner in the industry.” (Bollywood). She explained, “I was getting tired of the politics and said I needed a break because people weren’t casting me, I had beef with people, and I’m not good at playing that game.”
This music thing let me meet new people and see the world without needing to watch movies I didn’t want to see just to be accepted into certain social circles. She continued, “I didn’t feel like groveling because I had already worked so hard for so long.”
