HelloPC asked, With so much success in predominant woman lead roles...Do You feel you are a league ahead of the other Bolywood actresses, how do you manage to cope with this...Do u foresee a career fall in future becuase of this?
Priyanka Chopra answers, A career fall happens to every actor; it is inevitable but I think I am in a league of my own, and I have been since my first film -- in my own head at least. I am not sure what everyone else thinks.
Gaurav asked, Hi Priyanka, congrats on your new film "7 khoon maaf". You are really hot and beautiful , I am impressed of your looks and the way you have maintained yourself. Please tell me how are you maintaining that?
Priyanka Chopra answers, I am a very lazy person when it comes to the gym but I do work almost 18 hours a day. So maybe that maintains the calories. Also I have a very happy demeanour. So I think that's the reason.
lovfinder2 asked, priyanka,among rajesh khana,jeetendera,amitab bachan,whom wud u opt ist to act with as heroine.
Priyanka Chopra answers, I don't think it'll look right if I play a heroine to these stalwarts of Indian cinema because the age gap will look a little odd.
Chandresh asked, other than 7khun maaf which are movies expected
Priyanka Chopra answers, Don 2 with Shah Rukh Khan; Agneepath -- which is the remake of Amitabh's original by the same name starring Hrithik, Sanjay Dutt, Rishi Kapoor; Burfi with Ranbir Kapoor, Kunal Kohli's next film; and Krrish 2 with Hrithik.
ananda asked, Hi, Priyanka, my question is in how do you see India 10 years from now on, specially when we see so much of violence and corruption all around
Priyanka Chopra answers, Because of the number of youth in our nation and the fact that we live in one of the greatest democracies in the world, the country is going through a revolution where our generation is very aware of the violence and corruption. So I am hoping for a better future for our children.

'I can do all kinds of roles'
omkar asked, hi priyanka. how r u? u have done varied roles like the ones in aitraaz, fashion, and 7 khoon maaf. which one of these was the toughest? as a fan of urs i think u were excellent in aitraz
Priyanka Chopra answers, I think the toughest for me as of now has been 7KM because I age from 20 to 65, and it is a complex character.
simyy asked, What role is your most memorable role till date?
Priyanka Chopra answers, Fortunately for me I have had many milestone films in my short career so far. So I cannot pick one.
asif asked, Have u ever paid any price of your stardom in your personal life? Is that so then how?
Priyanka Chopra answers, Never, because I don't compromise on either.
omniscient asked, Hi Priyanka, what's this news about your tussle with Anu kapoor ? Is it a real thing or just a marketing gimmick before movie release, to grab people attention ?
Priyanka Chopra answers, I think our film has enough credibility that we don't need to resort to cheap marketing gimmicks to grab anyone's attention. I am sure you've already read what's going on in the news with Mr Annu Kapoor.
RKV asked, Hi ! Many girls sees you like a role model. how do you see the roles of in building a developed India preserving it's own cultural indentity and without getting much influenced by the western culture.? Thanks
Priyanka Chopra answers, I think with the films I do, I try and make entertainment which transcends the barriers of language. Hence, taking India beyond just the borders. When it comes to preserving out cultural identity, progress does not mean we are influenced by the western culture. Preserving our identity comes from within ourselves.
monsoon asked, Hi PC, Do not you think that experimenting with old looks like you are doing in 7KM , would alienate your young followers. I don't want to see you married to 60 year olds yet. Should you not do roles more suitable to your age at least for few years? Why experiment with character roles?
Priyanka Chopra answers, I am an actor and I can do all kinds of roles. For instance, playing a cop in Don 2 or doing Kunal Kohli's film with Shahid or Anjana Anjani with Ranbir, who are actors my age, and playing a 60-year-old woman with Naseeruddin Shah. I think it just makes me a better actor.
