On Priyanka Chopra’s 38th birthday, ace fashion designer Masaba Gupta took to Instagram to wish her friend, revealing how the actress has played an important role in her life.

In a heartfelt birthday post, Masaba said it was Priyanka from whom she drew inspiration to make her acting debut in the series Masaba Masaba, starring the designer and her mother Neena Gupta. The series is set to release on Netflix.

Masaba wrote on Instagram, “I wasn’t sure if doing a Netflix show & making a gutsy acting debut at 31, with a full-fledged business to take care of was the right thing but I ONLY thought of her (Priyanka) and how she would seize this opportunity.”

“Would she (Priyanka) be scared? Would she do it anyway? Would she know how to pick herself up & move on, if it were to not work out? Would she absolutely smash it anyway? HELL YEAH!” the designer added.

Talking about how PeeCee has been a role model in her life, Masaba continued, “To say I am inspired by her would be an understatement because I follow her like no one else, I’m always trying to see life & decisions in the way she would have because there is such courage,hard-work & compassion in all that she does. There’s nobody I’ve ever wanted to be like except her – in the way I see the world & opportunity.”

*Long post coming up cos I feel like it* I absolutely love @priyankachopra – I love the grit,the unapologetic ambition & the incredible ways she finds to raise the bar…one that she set for herself. I not only love her,I am also constantly shocked by her..she has this way of making you jump out of bed & put yourself to good use,no matter how you’re feeling or infact no matter what someone else is feeling about you. To say I am inspired by her would be an understatement because I follow her like no one else,I’m always trying to see life & decisions in the way she would have because there is such courage,hard-work & compassion in all that she does. There’s nobody I’ve ever wanted to be like except her – in the way I see the world & opportunity. In the fact that I can be so deeply rooted to where I come from,but never let that stop me from reaching far & beyond. But what I really wanted to say was Happy Birthday – I love your story & I’m going to tell it every chance I get ♥️ fun fact : I wasnt sure if doing a Netflix show & making a gutsy acting debut at 31 😅,with a full-fledged business to take care of was the right thing but I ONLY thought of her & how she would seize this opportunity. Would she be scared ? Would she do it anyway ? Would she know how to pick herself up & move on,if it were to not work out? Would she absolutely smash it anyway? HELL YEAH!
