Actors are being given 'too much credit', says Priyanka

Actor Priyanka Chopra was recently in India to launch her hair care brand in the country. Since then, she has returned to Los Angeles and was recently spotted attending singer-husband Nick Jonas’ concerts in the US. During her time in the country, the actress had opened up about what she thinks is the role of an actor in a film and how it was an amalgam of the writers, directors, choreographers, makeup artists, stylists and others were doing.

Speaking in an interview with Janice Sequeira, Priyanka said that she was able to take chances after working with the biggest names in the world. “This doesn't have to do with just working with the best in the business in the States (US). Even when I was working in Bollywood, working with the best filmmakers taught me how to be the best actor. We give too much credit to actors; actors do nothing by the way. We really don't. I've always said this. Actors do nothing… Those 30 seconds of a scene is where I come in. And then when I talk about the movie etc. So I have a very limited role,” the actor said.

Priyanka continued, “We say out somebody else's words, we are working on a script that is written by someone else, we are lip-syncing and singing songs that are in someone else's voice. We're dancing steps that are choreographed by somebody else. We are doing marketing, where questions are asked by somebody else. We are dressed by somebody, and hair and makeup are done by somebody. So what am I doing?”

On the work front, Priyanka was last seen in 'The Matrix Resurrections’ with Keanu Reeves. She will next be seen in her first-ever web series, ‘Citadel’, produced by the Russo Brothers. She also has a Bollywood film, ‘Jee Le Zaraa’, with Katrina Kaif and Alia Bhatt.
