What is the reason behind Priyanka Chopra snubbing the IIFA Awards?

What is the reason behind Priyanka Chopra snubbing the IIFA Awards?

The 34-year-old actress is also a producer and singer and she told news agency IANS that whichever project she picks up she "always wants to complete things".

Post the success of Baywatch, it doesn't seem like Priyanka Chopra has had time to even breath because she has already signed two more Hollywood films titled, A Kid Like Jake and Isn't It Romantic. Later, she will head back with the family to celebrate her own birthday.

The "Barfi" actress who has recently arranged a press conference on the occasion of the release of her forthcoming Marathi production venture, "Kaay Re Rascalaa", has ended up doing some desi steps when she heard the much famous song "Galti Se Mistake" from Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif's recent release "Jagga Jasoos".

I wouldn't like to be in Ed Woodward's position, negotiating, because everything is really hard . We have to respect the player, the club, the owner, the manager.

Priyanka Chopra has been invited to become a committee member of the Academy Awards. I am grateful to the academy for including people from around the world. It is Priyanka's second Marathi film. I am very clear about my views and the academy opens itself up to nominations for foreign language films outside of just one category. When our talent has won awards, it has been for films not made by India, because the opportunities are less. "I wish to change that", said Priyanka. "I'm glad I went with the unbreathable yellow double layered jacket and wool skirt", Ms Wilson wrote along with pictures of herself and Priyanka. As soon as I finalise something, I will share it with you.

Apart from work, the actress was also asked about her personal life. I have always spoken only about my achievements.
