Global icon Priyanka Chopra was quite the darling of photographers and other media personnel when she walked the red carpet at Stardust Awards 2016. The Quantico star — who is one of the most popular names in Hollywood today — doesn’t look at her stardom as something that she has achieved to avenge the tough times she had to face in her early years in America.

When asked if she was having the last laugh, Priyanka told indianexpress.com, “When I started out in Bombay, life wasn’t easy either. Even in the movie industry, for me in the beginning life was never easy. You have to work really hard to come to a position where people learn to respect you. So I am not someone who is like ‘haan haan abhi dekha’. I don’t do that. I am just really happy. I am very proud about it (success). I have worked very hard for it. I have stood my ground. I have done everything on my terms. I have never compromised. I am really happy that I have achieved what I have and I hope that given the fact that we have so much talent other people too get that recognition and acceptance.”

The actress, who in an IMDB poll beat the likes of Leonardo Di Caprio and Jennifer Aniston in popularity stakes, also expressed her pride and happiness about it. She said, “I am proud, excited and thankful to people who have looked for me and wanted to know about me and are curious about me. I think Indian talent deserves to be on the top 10 of the list and I am glad that I have been able to reach that position and other actors do too.

When asked about the reason behind male superstars of Hindi cinema not having made a transition to Hollywood, Priyanka said, “Male superstars perhaps don’t try. You need strength for that.”
