Mumbai: From dominating Bollywood with unmatched brilliance to sashaying at international red carpets like a total boss, Priyanka Chopra has come a long way. The global star is known as the strong woman who speaks her mind emphatically, irrespective of the risk of criticism, and among many other great things, of course.  

Priyanka Chopra will be honoured at Hollywood magazine, Variety’s Power of Women alongside Octavia Spencer, Patty Jenkins and others.

In behind-the-scenes video with the magazine, the diva spoke candidly about what makes her so powerful.

Priyanka Said, "I don't always feel powerful. I think that sometimes women have to show an enormous amount of strength to be perceived as unbreakable and that we can walk toe-to-toe with any man and anyone around the world. But women are physiologically different. It's hard. I am vulnerable sometimes, I'm moody sometimes and it is hard for me. There is no way I let anyone see that when I walk onto a set and I think that's what makes me powerful."

She added, "What makes me powerful is being able to emotionally check myself. Use my vulnerabilities as my strength. I think that is the power of feminity."

The actress also talked about embracing diversity in today's time and space.

"Diversity needs to be normal, it should not be a novelty. It should not be the conversation," Priyanka stated.

On work front, Priyanka is currently filming in Italy for season 3 of her hit American show Quantico.
