Priyanka Chopra Jonas: "We give too much credit to the actors."

In a recent interview, Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas says that actors get too much credit. And that it is her job to bring the script to life.

Priyanka Chopra is a global icon! The actress, who made her Bollywood debut in 2003 with The Hero: Love Story Of A Spy, has come a long way. She has been a part of international projects, including the Quantico series and the science fiction film The Matrix. She will next be seen in Citadel, produced by the Russo brothers.
In a recent interview, Priyanka was asked what it’s like to work with the biggest names in the world. She also talked about how actors get too much credit.

Take risks
In an interview with Janice Sequeira, Priyanka Chopra says that working with the biggest names in the world gives you the opportunity to take risks.
“It’s not just about working with the best in the business in the United States. Also, when I worked in Bollywood, working with the best filmmakers taught me how to be the best actress. By the way, we give too much credit to the actors; the actors do nothing. Not really. I have always said this. Actors don’t do anything,” says Priyanka.

The actors do nothing
She elaborates her statement. “We are working on a script written by someone else, saying someone else’s words, imitating songs sung by someone else, and performing dance steps choreographed by someone else.”
“Then we do marketing, where another person asks questions. We are dressed by someone, hair and makeup are done. So what do I do myself?” Priyanka wondered.

The actors are limited, but the ‘pressure is incredibly high’
She adds that as an actress, her job is to bring to life what is in a script. “So my work takes place between the words ‘action’ and ‘cut’. Those 30 seconds in a scene is where I play my part. And then I come back into the picture when we promote the movie. So I have a very limited role.”

However, he adds that the pressure is enormous. “And that’s also why very few people can do it.” She admits that “it takes a town” for the actors to be who they are.
