When asked about any particular male actor she would want to work with, she replied boldly, “My films do not depend on the male cast rather it is about the storyline and my character.”
Artists can bring people together by providing art, and art is appreciated everywhere, Chopra believes. “Whether artists can play a role in resolving conflicts between Pakistan and India, it is the responsibility of the countries’ governments.”
The former Miss World will next be attending at People’s Choice Awards 2016 as a presenter and nominee in the ‘Favorite Actress in a New TV Series’ category for TV drama Quantico. In the show she plays the lead protagonist of a young FBI recruit, Alex Parish.
Her upcoming film is ‘Jai Gangaajal’ in which Chopra will be seen as a fierce cop. Directed by Prakesh Jha, it is sequal of 2003 crime drama, Gangaajal.
