Everything about me is not for public consumption: Priyanka Chopra

The “Quantico” star said she doesn’t take gossip and trolls seriously unless it’s something that affects sentiments.

“My entire life, especially my personal life… Everything about me is not for public consumption. 90 per cent of my life is for public consumption, but 10 per cent of it is for me. I am a girl and I have the right to keep that to myself.

“Sometimes I laugh, sometimes I get annoyed… But mostly, I tell my publicists ‘Let it be, today’s news is tomorrow’s trash’,” Priyanka said at an event here on Monday.

The actress has been in the midst of rumours that she has got engaged to Jonas, who is 10 years younger to her. Her decision to opt out of Salman Khan’s “Bharat” added fuel to the speculation.

Priyanka, who flew in here from Singapore where she attended Jonas’s concert, said she doesn’t think she needs to “defend or explain” anything when it comes to her family, her relationships, equations with people and decisions.

“I’m not running for office, so I don’t owe anyone an explanation,” she quipped during an interactive session titled ‘Challenging the Status Quo & Forging New Paths’ organised Jointly by Ficci Ladies Organisation (FLO) and Yes Bank.

The interaction will take place here on Wednesday.

“Sadhguru is the most intriguing intellect that I have encountered. Mysticism isn’t a doorway to just exuberance and peace. I truly believe that if we as humanity could tap into the dimensions beyond the physical, we can transform the world. It’s a small step to wrap our little heads around the vastness of that world,” the “Queen” star said here.

Kangana said she has always been fascinated by mysticism, and is intrigued by Sadhguru’s book “Inner Engineering”.

She also said Swami Vivekananda’s practical and scientific approach to things has impacted her deeply.

On the work front, Kangana will star in “Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi”, a biopic on the Rani of Jhansi, and in comic thriller “Mental Hai Kya”.

The actress, who is married to Daniel Weber, will be seen hosting the 11th season of “Splitsvilla”, with the theme ‘Emotions vs Science’ on MTV.

“I love that I have been working on this show for the past five years. It’s a time I look forward to every year because it’s so much fun… This year I believe we have a great looking bunch of contestants and they are all very talented and outgoing. They are so entertaining,” she said.

Sunny will be seen co-hosting the show with Rannvijay Singha, who she calls her “Rakhi brother”.

“We have so much fun together laughing. I love his family and this year was especially tough for me because I got very ill during shooting and he helped me out so much, keeping an eye on my children as I was hospitalised for a night. They really love being around him and he is a great ‘little big brother’,” she said. (IANS)
