Meerra Chopra: Priyanka Chopra is so ambitious and hard-working that I know even if I try, I can't be her

However she has seen failure in her previous movie GANG OF GHOSTS. So ask the actress how she deals with that in a candid chat and she replies, “I don't need to deal with failure because I've not come into the industry with huge ambitions and plans. There's no pressure of failure. I've always been a very content girl who's not over-ambitious at all. In fact, I'm not even ambitious. I take life as it comes. Yes I will give my best to everything that comes my way. If nothing happens, then I'll get married. I have not decided one particular thing for me.”
But then being Priyanka and Parineeti's cousin, doesn't Meera feel that pressure of standing up to their level? Says the actress, “Everybody has a different personality. There's completely no pressure. I have seen Priyanka's journey and can't even match up to that. She's a different woman altogether. She's so ambitious and hard-working that I know even if I try, I can't be her. I'm extremely realistic and practical in my approach and have always been like that. If I know there's something I can't do, I don't even try and tell people around to let it be. I'm a very laid-back and lazy girl. I stay happy in smaller things also. So yes, I haven't set many goals. I'm very happy about what Priyanka is doing. Her name is shining globally. The comparisons stopped because she achieved so much.”
Ask Meerra if we can see her, Priyanka and Parineeti in a movie together and she instantly replies, “I want and would love to. It's become a little tough. Priyanka has become too big. I honestly feel she'll only be in Hollywood in the next 2 years. She deserves it and is made to achieve bigger things and she's doing it very well. Hats off to that.”
Stardom definitely can get tough. Priyanka, who is busy with Hollywood right now, might be facing difficulty in being there for the family. Pose the question to Meerra Chopra and she says, “I idolize her not only as an entertainer/actor, but because of the person she is. She's a beautiful human being and has become too big but is still just a phone call away. When my trailer released she called up to say she's proud of me and that 1920: LONDON looks like a fab trailer. She wanted to promote this movie. I won't even ask her now because I think she's made for much bigger things. She's never too busy for the family, but will do what's in her capacity. At the stage where she is, it's very difficult to be like her. I don't know how she does it because you lose your sanity because you've become too big. She or none of us imagined that coming from a small-town, middle-class family. It's very difficult to remain the way she has. If you can be even 10% of what she is, you're sorted.”
Well Meerra, here’s wishing you become 10% of what Priyanka Chopra is, if you haven’t reached there already!
