Priyanka Chopra opened up about her first co-star Thalapathy Vijay in a latest interview where she revealed her experience working with the superstar and how she loved watching the Tamil actor.

In an interview with the international magazine, Vanity Fair, the actress opened up about her major breakthroughs in her career starting from winning the coveted Miss World pageant in 2000 to starring in 'The Matrix Resurrections.

Speaking about her first debut movie 'Thamizhan' opposite Thalapathy, she revealed that working with Vijay was a big learning experience for her. 

"The first few movies that I did were a Tamil movie called Tamizhan and two Hindi movies - Andaaz and The Hero. They were tagged to be really big movies. And I remember walking onto the sets not knowing anything and thinking that acting was all about the clothes you wear and the makeup that you get done. And then I walked onto a set and I had to think about how to take these words on a paper and make them a person, and that was terrifying," said Priyanka.

She revealed how Vijay was one of the first few influences in her life and how he taught him one of the important life lessons which she still follows. 

"I remember Tamizhan, which was really difficult for me as I did not know Tamil as a language. I was learning it phonetically, memorising it, understanding the meaning behind it, and then saying my lines. But, I loved watching my co-actor Vijay - he was one of the first few influences in my life. He had tremendous humility on set. Once he comes onto the set, he never leaves the set. And that's something I do even now," added PeeCee.




Work-wise, Priyanka added another feather to her cap by gracing the cover page of the international magazine Vanity Fair for their February 2022 edition. She has Amazon Prime Video's web series Citadel, Text For You and Jee Le Zaraa in her kitty.
