Mumbai, Dec. 5 -- "Most women stand tall in their own way. But I am truly proud of and inspired by Priyanka Chopra. As an actor, she is par excellence and has never been afraid of taking risks. From commercial blockbusters to path-defining characters, with films such as Barfi! and 7 Khoon Maaf, she has always been able to blend herself seamlessly. It's tough enough to make a mark for yourself in our country and our industry, seeing the rise in competition. But not only did she become a top star here, she has globally made a mark for herself and made the country proud. All this only through sheer hard work and dedication."
