Was watching Simi Grewal’s ‘India’s Most Desirable’ tonight. It’s one of a few shows that I watch on Indian channels. I don’t think it’s the greatest of shows as I do find Simi a little sickly sweet and over-motherly at times. But I’ve always been interested in knowing the stars as a real person. I used to do something similar when I was on ‘Club Asia Radio’ on something that I called ‘Celeb on Demand’ I used to get up, close and personal with the stars and loved every single second of it!
So I’m sitting there and munching on my noodles when Priyanka is asked to sing by Simi, and she obliges. I have to be honest and do feel like half the things on Simi’s show are all staged and pre-prepped. In this I mean most times the stars are given a penalty by the audience then the stars seems to be all to prepared for it and their penalties are performed very immaculately!! I’m sure the whole world knew but I have just come to know this about her!!! Plus although Priyanka was brilliant, I am sure she had pre-planned and pre-practised her rendition of ‘Hero’! Nevertheless I understand that sometimes celebs to have to be pre-warned and pre-prepped just incase they give you an adverse unwanted reaction on a show.
Where was I? Oh yes. Miss Priyanka Chopra. I have always liked her as I find her to be a very versatile actor and do relate to her as a person. She is very indecisive and she confesses that she can be very dependant. That is so totally me! She also constantly needs re-assurance and advice, and that too is me. Furthermore she has had huge knock backs in her film career and at the beginning she didn’t come across many people that were happy to help or guide her. So totally how it was for me! Plus she is very close to her Dad, and so am I to my Mum. She is also very confident and looking for true love that will make her go crazy. I won’t go on…..
Don’t laugh, but because I wanted to share her singing with you I recorded it off my telly. Whoops sorry Star Plus, please forgive me but I needed to share her skills with the world. It is the dream of Pri’s Dad that she becomes a huge world renowned singing star, so she dedicated the song to her Pops bless her. I was blown away and totally surprised that Priyanka Chopra can actually sing!! You go Pri. I’m very proud of you. In fact I think that you should now sing your own songs in all your movies. It will so give you a different edge to the rest my ‘Desi Girl’ xxx
