Priyanka’s food secrets: Two large pizzas for lunch and she would be hungry again early evening!

Priyanka Chopra is not the kind to nibble on a lettuce leaf and call it her lunch, as we see in Bharathi S Pradhan’s biography of the actress, Priyanka Chopra: The Dark Horse. Director Madhur Bhandarkar, who worked with Priyanka in Fashion, reveals, “On the set, she would mingle with everybody, eat junk food like khakra (crispy thin Indian cracker) and munchies. I used to go to Neelam, the food store near my house, and stock up on all the snacks for us to have on the sets. She would say, ‘Oh yes, do get this and get that.’ She is one actress who eats well.”

Ask where all the food she puts in goes, and PC quips, “I think it goes to my heart!” She hates cooking and dislikes gourmet food. “I’m more of a junk food person. I love Indian food any day. Hyderabadi, Punjabi, South Indian, I love fish curry and rice, love, love, love!”

Filmmaker Rakesh Roshan is amazed by her capacity to put away large amounts of food and still look fabulous. “It’s amazing how fond she is of eating but doesn’t put on weight. I could never understand how she manages that. I’d be surprised when she would order two big pizzas for lunch and watch her finish both. Not small-sized ones but family ones where there’d be ten or more slices. Then again after four o’clock, she’d be having something else!”

Not even ex-beau Shahid Kapoor could sway her. A staunch vegetarian, Shahid had even managed to inspire his ex-girlfriend, Kareena Kapoor to give up on meat. However, with Priyanka, it was another ball game altogether. Shahid has been known to chuckle, “Priyanka can never turn vegetarian, woh kabhi nahin hogi vegetarian.” PC apparently loves her non-veg food so much that friends are known to joke that when they go out, she orders the main course and they end up eating the side order!
