Priyanka Chopra is hot and happening. But what’s her life away from glamour like?

What’s Priyanka Chopra’s life at home all about?

On her iPod  “Oh my God. I listen to radio these days. I listen to a lot of Sam Smith; I have turned towards jazz. I don’t know why but lately I have been listening to a lot of Miles Davis and just, Jazz and Blues.”

In her fridge “There is lots of cheese and crackers and olives. I have a small fridge which is right outside my bedroom because I get midnight munchies all the time. And I have ice cream and so much junk.”

In her bag “In my bag? My whole life! I have a diary, a pencil box, my make-up, my iPod, I have…I don’t know. I have the strangest of things that come out of my bag, like, from a nail file to tissues to medicines to everything.”

On her blacklist “People? Oh no. I don’t take people so seriously. I really don’t give so much importance to people that I’d put them on a blacklist.”

On her bookshelf “So many new books. I buy so many books. I recently read a really sweet book If I Stay by Gayle Forman, about a girl who has been in an accident. I am a voracious reader. But I have a lot of pending scripts so I feel guilty when I read other books!”

On her bucket list “On my bucket list, I once had, ‘To go to Disneyland’. But when I went there I hated it. Because there were screaming children, long lines, heat, and I was like, “God, man! I don’t want to go to Disneyland anymore.” So I don’t know what to put on my bucket list. I had decided that before 21, I wanted to go skydiving and bungee jumping, which I did. I was shooting for a film in Switzerland and I just went and did it, back to back. I have to make a new bucket list. I think I will do that soon.”

On her speed dial “My mom, she gets speed-dialled for everything. And my team – they are my problem solvers.”

On her skin “What is on my skin is moisturiser. That is how I like it.”

On the telly “TV shows. Right now, I am watching How to Get Away with Murder. Movies, I feel, are a very big commitment. So I prefer TV shows.”

On her wall “I am making my new house right now; actually renovating a house that I have just taken up. So I am looking for art. But I have some really fun stuff that I like. I am not an art connoisseur but I like thoughtful things. For my office, I am getting some really quirky fun things. I have these amazing posters signed by really great people, like the Don poster signed by Mr. Bachchan, I have a poster of a film signed by Robert de Niro, then I have one by Sophia Loren to me. So I want to make a wall of legends and greats. I think that is really cool!”
