Trailblazers: How Pee Cee & DP Made The Coveted Crossover



So, finally, the Bollywood wheel is turning in the Hollywood direction! Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone have shown that how a Bollywood actress can be successful and be in news in Hollywood too. As we celebrate womanhood, let’s take a look at the success mantras of these two ladies.

Priyanka Chopra: She has really learnt the tricks to be the newsmaker


She is practically everywhere now. She has made appearances on the red carpet, award shows, after parties and done the rounds of American talk shows — from Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon to James Corden and Ellen DeGeneres, has won the People’s Choice awards twice, presented an award in the Oscars and flirted with Hollywood A-listers at the after parties! Priyanka, who has already made a fan base with her ABC hit series Quantico, is faring better than Deepika in America. When she walked away with her second gong at the People’s Choice Awards for her role in the hit series, which is in its second season. Chopra plays case officer Alex Parrish. “I am really happy being a drama queen… As everyone has been saying, it has been an incredible journey… Thank you to all who have accepted me,” said Chopra at the award ceremony.

A former Miss World, Priyanka began her international career with the launch of her single In My City in 2012, a track she recorded with, followed by a Miami Beach-appropriate ditty Exotic with Pitbull. She then went on to become the face of clothing line Guess. She was really clever to understand that she can’t bag a big Hollywood project until and unless she prove herself. That’s why she started her career with small screen there and opted for Quantico and became a hit in the average American household. In Baywatch, she stars alongside Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron. Recently, in an interview with PTI, she said, “I don’t take success for granted. Nobody should. It goes away in a wink. I am sure it will go away with me also. But I am someone who is an achiever, so you just have to be able to evolve into different things.”

Though her career in Bollywood in currently at stall because of her Hollywood outing, Pee Cee isn’t too bothered. Recently, on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Chopra said, “I live in Mumbai, I mean I work for nine months in a year in America but I still live in Mumbai, I like to say that.”

Deepika Padukone: Really Wants To Make It Big In Hollywood

This leggy beauty started her Hollywood venture with a bang. She posted a selfie with the bald-headed Vin Diesel and announced her big, fat Hollywood debut opposite this biggie. But xXx Return of Xander Cage, released on January 14, starring Hollywood heavyweights Vin Diesel and Samuel L Jackson, was not sailing smooth at the box office. Made on a budget of $85 million, the film earned just over 330 million rupees ($4 million) in two weeks in India and $20 million in the opening weekend in North America. She was also criticised over her bad choice of clothes on the international red carpet.

But in spite of that, Deepika managed quite a few Hollywood appearances and was seen in the pre and post Oscar party too. Though she hasn’t announced any other Holly project now, but keeping in mind how she has surprised us all in past, we can expect another good news anytime soon.
