Priyanka Chopra has a higher mission than just making it in Hollywood: she wants to break down stereotypes of Indians in Tinseltown’s eyes and maybe make things easier for her compatriots who live in the United States. Here’s her first lesson: “We don’t travel on elephants, there aren’t any snake charmers on the side of the road, everybody doesn’t talk like Apu from ‘The Simpsons’,” the actress says, with a bit of a laugh. Chopra, 31, is one of the biggest stars to emerge in Indian film in recent years, alongside Bollywood heavyweights Shah Rukh Khan and Hrithik Roshan, with big budget franchises such as ‘Krrish’ and ‘Don’. She has also won plaudits for taking on unconventional roles, most recently playing an autistic woman in 2012’s ‘Barfi!’. But in her latest role as an eye-catching animated racing airplane in Disney’s global adventure ‘Planes’, Chopra said she is hoping to cross the boundaries of Bollywood to Hollywood.
