2016 is Priyanka Chopra’s year and we’re just living in it, as evinced by her many achievements and the fact that she was recently awarded the Padma Shri. Her bold career moves aside, she’s also been unabashedly honest about her personal life. According to Pinkvilla, in a recent interview with Filmfare, the actor opened up about matters of the heart.
On wanting to remain single
“Not at all. Of course not. I have always wanted babies. Lots of them. For that reason I want to get married. It is not fair to bring a child to this world without marriage. Society is mean like that. I want to get married but no one can claim me until someone really claims me.”
“Heartache is a bitch, man. You have to isolate yourself from the other person whether they have been bad to you or you have been bad to them. You start with the little things. ‘I need sleep, I need a good book. I need to be with friends’. You have to start thinking about yourself. My heartaches have been bad. There is no good way to end a relationship.”
On talking about her personal life
“I have a personal life. I don’t like talking about it. I am private about it. I’ve never flaunted my relationships, I have protected them. I believe in buri nazar. So if something is important to you, keep it close to your heart… Who says I don’t have a partner? I might not be with him because I am travelling. All my life I have never commented on the fact whether I am in a relationship or not.”
On love and cheating
“I buy my own diamonds. When a guy comes into my life it will not be for diamonds. A guy will be in my life only when I am in love. I don’t need a guy for anything else except for children… If my man cheated, I would probably beat the shit out of him first. I am the kind of person who would get violent. Depending on how much I love him, I may forgive or may not forgive.
Infidelity in relationships should never be accepted. Marriage kya hai? Once you commit your heart to someone, have the balls to confess to your partner instead of continuing to cheat on her. I would, if I wanted to be with someone else. Because then you are stripping them of their pride. That is the reason why Kashi was important to me. Why do people lie? Because they are scared to say ‘I love someone else’. It’s your cowardice. Don’t be a coward. Walk up and confess. Give them the respect because you have been in a relationship with that person whatever it may be been. That is the reason why I am totally against and judgmental about infidelity and lying.”
