Mumbai: In year 2000, Priyanka Chopra was crowned as Miss World. Ever since then, Jamshedpur’s small town girl is going places. After conquering Bollywood, Priyanka has also made her mark in the West as she made her Hollywood TV debut with ABC’s show ‘Quantico’.

Priyanka Chopra, who is currently shooting for the second season of the thriller drama show ‘Quantico’ and is all set to make her Hollywood silver screen debut with ‘Baywatch’ which stars Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron, says that she still has some kind of PTSD (Posttraumatic stress disorder) from her Miss India and Miss World days.

The actress, who will join ‘Project Runway’ as a guest judge alongside Heidi Klum, Zac Posen and Nina Garcia, expressed that eliminating contestants was hard for her as she knows the stress and pressure participants go through.

“It was so hard for me to do the elimination part,” Chopra admits. “I really felt for these contestants. I’m a guest judge, so thankfully I don’t have to be mean! I’ve been through contests that have involved elimination. I won both [Miss India and Miss World], but the pressure and stress was so much that I still have some kind of PTSD from it. I’m not sure I could ever do it again,” Priyanka told New York Post in an interview.

Everyone knows how close Priyanka was to her father Ashok Chopra who, after eight-year-long battle with cancer, passed away in 2013. Years have passed and the actress still refers to him in the present tense. While talking about her father, Priyanka told the daily how she felt failure the most during that time in her life.

“I kept asking myself, ‘What more could I have done — what did I miss? Could I have found a different treatment?’ It was the time in my life that I felt failure the most.” Priyanka said. “It was never a plan of mine to go to a whole new country at the age of 33, and start a new career,” she adds. “Maybe he’s orchestrating it from somewhere. I’d like to believe that,” she adds.
