Actress-singer Priyanka Chopra admires the pop sensation Beyonce Knowles and wants to strike the same balance between professional and personal life that the latter has.
Bollywood's multitalented star Priyanka Chopra admires international pop star-cum-actress Beyonce Knowles for the balance that she has struck in personal and professional life.
"I admire Beyonce a lot because she is an amazing performer and more than anything, she balances her personal and professional life very well," Priyanka said here.
"She has a child, and at the same time, her professional life also, which is amazing! That's the kind of a person I would like to be - who can balance both personal and professional life together," she added.
Priyanka Chopra, who is charting her own singing career after becoming a successful actress, says it was her late father, who always wanted her to be a singer.
The 31-year-old has already launched two international singles - "In my city" and "Exotic".
But it was a well-timed decision to get into the singing field, she believes.
"In the beginning of my career, I never knew acting. I have learnt everything in my career itself. When you have gone to acting school, when you are in the film industry, there is some familiarity, but I didn't have these familiarities.
"So it took some time and when I reached somewhere, I got this opportunity of music and that time I was little more comfortable in films and my dad really wanted me to do it," Priyanka Chopra said.
