Priyanka Chopra has been living literally out of the suitcase these days. The actress is shooting for Quantico in Montreal and simultaneously has Bollywood projects like Bajirao Mastani, Gangaajaal 2 among others. With the lady globetrotting, it was quite relevant to ask her on what she thinks about the intolerance wave that is being discussed currently in the Nation.
Ask her about it and she says, “First of all I don’t think intolerance is about me as an artist or you as a journalist or anybody else but I think as a world. Look at what is happening all around. Look at the wars happening around. I am going to name Paris, Syria, Lebanon, Mumbai and everything. Just for one second sit down and look around the world we are living in, isn’t everything intolerant? Are we not the globe? Are we not saying that this person is wrong because his religion is wrong, or this person is wrong because he is going to a concert? What is happening? It’s not a country or a particular type of people. We as a people as human beings just have to sit down and think for one second.”
She adds, “So don’t go out on social media and use your anonymity and blast out at people because you can. Sit down in your homes and think about your opinion. Our forefathers fought for democracy in the country, they fought years and years of British Raj so that we could have a democracy, we could have freedom of speech, language and opinion and so did so many other countries. Even in America right now in an interview somebody said that, women of color are doing really well, with coming in. I said, I don’t want to be called a woman of color, I am a woman. If you want to divide me, say man and woman,we look different what is brown, black, blue, yellow… what is wrong with us? I’m not a woman of colour and I don’t want to be seen as that. I am not even going to comment on one particular thing right now because, to me, I am travelling the world right now and I am seeing it everywhere and not just in India.”
We wonder what the people have to say about this!
