Priyanka Chopra: I don’t need a man except for children
Priyanka Chopra has recently been praised and adorned in the Indian media beyond doubt,owing to her stellar success. The actress notched the Peoples Choice Award for Favourite Actress, making history by being the first South Asian actress to do so. However, that does not mean she can get away with whatever she wants. The actress was asked about a diamond ring on her finger, to which she confidently replied:-
“I buy my own diamonds. When a guy comes into my life it will not be for diamonds,A guy will be in my life only when I am in love. I don’t need a guy for anything else except for children,” she said.
During the explosive interview, Chopra also hinted about being in a relationship by saying she never said she was single.
“Who says I don’t have a partner? I might not be with him because I am travelling. All my life I have never commented on whether I am in a relationship or not,” she said.
After an uproar was caused on micro-blogging site Twitter, Priyanka Chopra also tweeted a clarification:-
Wow what is all this man hating what I said being converted into. Pls guys give a little credit.U shouldn’t need a man.U should want a man.
