PeeCee, who journey from being a Miss World to ruling Bollywood, making her international debut with American show Quantico, and now moving to Hollywood, has been quite remarkable. In a recent interview, Priyanka had said whatever she has achieved is due to her own hard work, “without the help and support of anybody else”.
“I started with nothing, no support. A complete newcomer to even Mumbai city, not even the movie industry. I didn’t even know anyone. So I kind of did all that I did on my own without the help and support of anybody. The love and affection I have got from audiences around the world kind of gave me the strength to do that. They have put me in a position where I am used to being the face on a poster. I don’t want to settle for that,” she said.
