The international diva Priyanka Chopra is becoming the talk of the town ever since she has entered Hollywood and we cant be anymore happier to see her making India proud! Her popularity is increasing day by day and not to mention that she is the only female celebrity who has made it to the Forbes Top 10 Indian Celebrity List of 2017 with an earning of 68 crore.
Apparently, there is a news going around the internet that PC has charged 5 crore rupees for doing a five minute performance at the Zee Cine awards and that she will be seen performing after 2 years, which is a huge thing!
I should thank my mom and dad for this award…lol! It’s purely my genetics and your optics.. and a big thank you for the immense love you guys give me every single time which has put me on top of the list 5 times over. Thank you #EasternEye… you do know how to flatter a girl! @asjadnazir #AsjadNazirSexyList2017 #worldssexiestasianwomen2017
5 crore Rs at an awards event can probably leave you stunned and shocked, but for those who have been trolling and questioning her on getting paid extremely high just for a 5-minute act, she has an amazing reply for them!
Yes, recently Priyanka was at the Penguin Annual Lecture on Tuesday and she had spoken about how her dream has always been about achieving the intangible joy of leaving behind a legacy.
“It’s not about whether I want a car or want so many zeros on my cheque. For me, it has always been bigger than that… There’s a bigger picture,” she said.
So, do those zeroes matter?
“Yes. Because I work very hard for them. And I wasn’t born with a silver spoon, though my parents always gave me one. I always worked very hard to be where I am and I think each one of us deserves to be compensated for it.”
Priyanka, who has followed her dreams and carved a successful path by launching herself in Hollywood and playing a role in the American TV show Quantic says that she is “extremely proud” of being the only woman in a men’s only top 10 list.
“But it was funny because there are so many people who talk about the kind of numbers that I apparently get for certain minutes of my time,” she said, taking a dig at reports that she charged Rs 5 crore for her five-minute performance at the Zee Cine Awards earlier this month in Mumbai.
“The boys are never asked this question. Their zeroes are ridiculous. Have you even seen the zeroes that they get on their cheques? We should be celebrating that at least there’s one girl who has gone out there.”
Raising a question on gender pay gap, the Unicef goodwill ambassador said: “I am very proud of myself that I have had the ability to work so hard that I can stand shoulder-to-shoulder with my male counterparts in the top 10 of India, but at the same time, there’s a question — Why is there just one of me when there are so many of them in that industry.”
I think PeeCee deserves a huge round of applause for her immense dedication and hardwork that she puts in every work that she does!
