Global icon Priyanka Chopra, currently in Mumbai for the Jio MAMI Film Festival, graced the event with her wisdom and inspiration during a masterclass on 'The Mind of an Actor.' This captivating session was hosted by the talented actor Bhumi Pednekar, who deeply admires Priyanka's remarkable journey as an artist.
During the masterclass, Priyanka took a moment to applaud Bhumi's path in the film industry and specifically highlighted her outstanding performance in her debut film, 'Dum Laga Ke Haisha.' Priyanka praised Bhumi's determination and early realization of her passion for acting, stating, "You knew you wanted to be an actor. You knew from when you were very young that Ye Mumbai Nagri Meri Hai, mujhe yaha naam banana hai. Mere liye ye nahi tha. I will talk about my journey for someone who was dropped into this profession as an actor, and I am a hustler. Ap mujhe kuch bhi dedo karne ke liye mai karlungi. Either I do it 100% or I don't attach my name to it."
Priyanka's words resonated with authenticity as she shared her lifelong dedication to her craft, built on sheer hard work and unwavering commitment. She continued by acknowledging Bhumi's journey, "I've been like that since I was a kid. So, I created my career through hustling, but you are such an inspiration to me too because your journey has been so wonderful Bhumi in terms of the choices you've made, the characters that you've chosen, and just the dignity with which you support your characters."
In a candid moment, Priyanka inquired about Bhumi's transformative experience for her role in 'Dum Laga Ke Haisha.' Bhumi shared, "I put on more than 30 kgs; after that, I stopped counting. Once I touched 95 kilos, I was that's it!"
Priyanka Chopra commended Bhumi's incredible dedication, "You were so amazing, I mean the weight and all was great, but just your acting, man. You were amazing!" The exchange between these talented actresses revealed their mutual admiration for each other's commitment to their craft.
The masterclass extended into a heartfelt conversation covering various aspects of Priyanka's career and life, including work-life balance, the impact of social media, script selection, and more.
