Disha Patani who has great admiration for Priyanka Chopra Jonas and what she has achieved in her career internationally, said she also aspires to be an unforgettable actress one day.
Reported on Deccan Chronicle, the ‘Bharat’ (2019) star said, “Priyanka has achieved a lot in Hollyood as well, and made us and our country proud. Mujhe Priyanka pasand hai, woh bhi Bareilly, ek small town, se aati hai (I like Priyanka, she is from a small town called Bareilly as well).” Recognising that she is still new in the film industry, Patani understands she needs to work harder still, “I need to make a strong foothold in Bollywood. I think, in this short span of my filmy career, I have worked with great actors and have done interesting roles too. I am happy with small or big achievements, but I feel I have to still work hard and go a long way.”
Asked whether she would also like to follow in similar footsteps to the ‘Baywatch’ (2017) actor. Patani said it’s not something she has thought about, “I do not have any agents to get me work in Hollywood films, simply because I feel that it’s not easy to audition for foreign films. I will need to concentrate totally out there. I am doing pretty well over here in Bollywood and I still wish to work in Hindi films. I have not thought about get going to Hollywood films yet.”
Patani’s latest film with Aditya Roy Kapur, ‘Malang’ (2020) is at cinemas currently.
