Priyanka Chopra Jonas reacts to Shah Rukh Khan's comment on not wanting to enter Hollywood, says 'comfortable is boring to me'


Priyanka Chopra Jonas, who is currently busy promoting her upcoming show Citadel, recently reacted to an old comment of Shah Rukh Khan on not wanting to enter Hollywood. The actress said that comfort is boring to her as she reacted to her Don co-star's comment.

During the Citadel promotion, the interviewer quoted Shah Rukh's comment on why he doesn’t think about starring in a Hollywood film. The SXSW interviewer told PeeCee, “Shah Rukh Khan says, ‘why should I go there (Hollywood), I am comfortable here.'” On this, she responded, “Comfortable is boring to me. I am not arrogant, I am self-assured. I know what I am doing when I walk onto a set. I don’t need the validation of executives. I am willing to take auditions, I am willing to work. I do not carry the baggage of my success in one country when I walk into another country.”

Priyanka added that her ego is not bigger than her job. She said, “I am very professional and if you ask people around me, I am known for my professionalism. I take pride in it. My father was in the military and he taught me the value of discipline. He taught me not to take the value of what you have been given for granted.”

The first season of the Russo Brothers produced show Citadel will stream on the OTT giant on April 28. It will begin with the first two episodes and the remaining 4 will premiere weekly till May 26.
