Priyanka Chopra: I just love roti, dal

New Delhi– Actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas says she loves homemade Indian food, and misses dal and roti tremendously when she is in the US.

The actress most recently featured in “The White Tiger”, a dark comedy about class divide and the murky realities of Indian society. Directed by Ramin Bahrani, the OTT-released film stars Adarsh Gourav and also has Rajkummar Rao, Mahesh Manjrekar and Vijay Maurya in pivotal roles.

Opening up about the scene which spoke to her the most in “The White Tiger”, Priyanka said: “The scene between Balram and Pinky really speaks to me, when she’s imploring him to think about having his own life and his own family because she pulled herself out of the circumstances that she was born into, and wants him to do the same thing. I love that scene.”

She also praised her co-star Rajkummar Rao. “I love Rajkummar Rao. I’m such a fan of his work, and I think he was amazing in ‘Newton’,” Priyanka said during a conversation with IMDb.

“Adopting a child is very common abroad. There are plenty of international renowned names who have adopted children and even funded their education. In India, the thought is finally pacing up but it will still take a lot of time,” Salim said.

“I have always believed in the concept of ‘right to education’, children are our future and right education will not only help them prosper financially, it also makes them a better human being. As of now I have adopted and looked into the education of 12 lovely bright children,” he added.

Explaining his thoughts, he said: “There is a stigma around adoption that has been created by the people in our society so they either don’t do it or keep it in private. I never believed in talking about it but I feel with the changing phase and thoughts of the young souls of our nation, now is the time to speak up.”

“I will consider my work done even if my voice reaches out and inspires a few people. I would urge everyone to come out and openly accept these kids as they can live a life which they might have only dreamt off,” he added.

Salim, who made his debut with “Bollywood Diaries” in 2016, will next be seen with Raima Sen and Vinay Pathak in the film “Aliya Basu Gayab Hai”, set to release next month.
