I like watching Priyanka Chopra on TV shows. She has done so many chat shows in India and in the US. I think she is so sought-after because of her personality. She is fun and isn’t afraid of getting silly. So I couldn’t think of anyone better to pose these mad (and somewhat irrelevant) questions to. She was game. Read on to find out what she splurged on last and the last time she said a lie...
What is the last picture you’ve clicked?
I adopted a dog recently. Her name is Diana, she is adorable and I was doing a photo shoot and I don’t know what it is about her, but she just kept snuggling beside me and I couldn’t let her go back. So, I got her home. I am just obsessed about clicking pictures with her.
What’s your blood type?
O+. Universal donor.
Yes, we can give blood to the whole world. Some people are born just to do that.
What is the last lie you told?
That I woke up late because I was late on set as usual. That is my every morning lie. (ALSO READ: Not Katrina Kaif or Deepika Padukone but Priyanka Chopra is a best dancer in Bollywood according to Urvashi Rautela – watch video)
One person you trust with your life other than your family?
My best friend, Tamanna.
If you had a choice to be ugly and live forever or be attractive and die in one year, what would you choose?
If I could be young and live forever it wouldn’t matter if I was attractive or ugly, I’d make the most of it.
If you could have personally witnessed something what would it have been?
I would have liked to witness India’s independence.
If you could wake up in the body of someone else tomorrow else, who would you pick and what would you do?
It would be so disgusting if I had to wake up and look at someone else’s body.
One question you hate to answer?
When people attach “How you are feeling?” with every situation. “Aapko kaisa lag raha hai?” I usually reply, “Mujhe bhookh lag rahi hai, thandi lag rahi hai.”
If you could be any age for a week, what age would you choose to be and why?
34. I’m great right now.
If you had a brainwashing machine, who would you use it on?
If I tell you, I will have to kill you, Sarita.
What is the longest you’ve gone without sleep?
Ten days is the longest I have gone without sleep. I think, at the beginning of my career. There was some date clash in 2005 or 2006 and I was shooting about four films together. I remember Aitraaz was one of them, Mujhse Shaadi Karoge was the other, I don’t remember the other two films. There were four films, and all of their sets were put in Filmistan and I was doing one climax in Film City. I was doing five shifts every day.
You have to look good on screen and you have to act, how do you do that without sleep?
Yes. And act and remember lines of all your characters. I used to come down to Mumbai when I was shooting Bajirao during Quantico just to shoot on Sunday and then go back and then land and then go straight to work. You have to find ways to train your body. I have a quick fix for jet lag. Whenever you get on to a long flight you have to time your sleep according to the country you are going to land in. Because once you land, then you are on that cycle.
What is the one habit you are proud of breaking or want to break?
Not reaching on time. I haven’t broken any bad habits. I am very bad, I have lots of bad habits. So one thing I want to do is get healthy which I am not but I want to be able to... I don’t work out, eat right, I just get coffee and forget to eat sometimes, I want to try and get healthy. A lot of my friends have done that and at the same time I want to try and sleep on time. I am a vampire I think.
What is your favourite word?
I say, ‘what are you saying’ a lot.
Who is your hero?
Are you still learning who you are or you know who you are?
I think you could spend a lifetime to know who you are because change is the most constant thing in life. As soon as you get to know who you are today, tomorrow you’ll think, ‘Oh really?’ You are going to keep spending your whole life in figuring that out.
If you could spend a day with a celebrity who would it be?
I admire musicians a lot so I would have liked to spend some time with Mohammad Rafi, I grew up listening to his music. And Bruce Springsteen.
Your favourite breakfast food?
Eggs and toast and dosa.
Which famous person do people say you resemble?
I guess Eva Mendes.
What do you think is Victoria’s Secret?
She looks great in lingerie.
If you had to be trapped in a TV show which one would you pick?
Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. Great food and great drama what else would anybody want from their family?
The last time you shopped and what did you buy?
I bought a diamond necklace for myself.
If you had to join a circus what would you do there?
I’d be a Trapeze artiste because I think they are beautiful and I miss dancing.

The weirdest thing about me is that I am extremely comfortable with being weird. I am okay with who I am. However, there is nothing weird as such about me. In any case, my friends will be able to answer that better.
