Priyanka Chopra during Miss World

If we take a closer look at the past few years of actress Priyanka Chopra‘s career, she has definitely risen to prominence and has established her name internationally. With plum projects like TV series ‘Quantico’ and Hollywood debut with film ‘Baywatch’, the actress has achieved the pinnacle of her career, and is still unstoppable. There’s no doubt that Priyanka‘s journey is one that can very well inspire millions. She is making India proud and continues to inspire all with her achievements. And it had all started way back in the year 2000 when she was crowned Femina Miss India World. But, recently we stumbled upon an old interview of the actress where she opened up that she wasn’t even aware of her pictures being sent for this prestigious national beauty pageant. Yes! You read that right.

It was in the year 2006 when Priyanka appeared as the celebrity guest on talk show ‘Rendezvous with Simi Garewal’. During her conversation with host Simi Garewal, she was asked whether it was true that her family had entered her name without telling her. The actress replied by saying, “Yeah! I just come back from America to do my 12th in India. So, my mom I don’t know randomly just for the heck of it sent my pictures in and pictures that are taken at home, you know. And they sent it in. I was actually in middle of tuition and I was watching ‘Mera Naam Joker’. And I got a phone call and just picked it up and was like ‘Hello’, and she’s like ‘Oh! Hi I’m calling from Femina, this is Ila, your preliminary contest is in four days and this is the hotel and you’ll have to come there. There are about 500 girls chosen so we’ll see you there, no makeup bring high heels and I’ll see you there. Okay, bye’.” (Also Read: The day Priyanka Chopra created a record by playing 12 different characters)

“I was just like, wait how could Femina know I live in Bareilly and she knew my name. So, I was really excited and I was like mom they must have done like a random search or something and found me. Then she very sheepishly came and told me you know I sent those pictures and I was like how could you send those pictures, they are so ugly and she’s like you got a call. So, yeah I just started from there,” added the actress.

Well, we can say that that was the moment which spun Priyanka’s life around, and are glad that her mother Madhu Chopra went ahead and entered her name. Had she not done that, we would never have been introduced to this exceptional bundle of talent and versatility named Priyanka Chopra.

Little Abhishek Bachchan found his mother’s films very depressing)

She said, “There was this one time I was driving back from Yash Raj Studios and I got the news, Adi (Aditya Chopra) told me. And I was driving back and I couldn’t drive anymore because I was crying. I was so happy.. I was crying. So I stopped… I stopped the car and I pulled over and I called my mother and I told her that I got this film. And you know what my mum told me? There’s this turtle that used to be there in my living room. It was I think some Feng Shui thing. You just open the turtle and you put something like a wish inside that turtle and you shut it. And when your wish comes true you take it out. So she never never told me about this. But then she came down after she heard that I have got the film she opened that and showed it to me. She’d written it there ‘I hope my daughter stars in a Yash Raj film’. I swear… it’s unbelievable. So I think somewhere she always wanted me to be an actress.”

Upon hearing this, Simi reacted, “What are you saying?” Anushka added, “She said that she’d written this long ago, one thing for my brother and one thing for me.” Simi immediately asked if what was written for her brother came true as well, to which, Anushka nodded her head in agreement. And then when Simi asked Anushka if she (Simi) could write something in this magical, wish-fulfilling turtle, Anushka smiled and said, “You have to meet my mom right (smiles) she has some direct contact with God.”

Indeed, every parent wishes the best for his/her children and this incident is something that showcases this perfectly. Unbelievable, unforgettable, and totally lovable.

For a young kid, it is really hard to believe and understand that his/her parents are getting divorced. This difficult time was hit on actor Shahid Kapoor, who was just three years old when his parents Pankaj Kapur and Neelima Azeem got separated from each other. In his first growing years, Shahid lived and spent much more time with his mother in Delhi at that time. The actor mother believes that as a single divorced woman bringing up a child would have been hard for his mother but nobody can understand this better than her. But, as a mother, for Neelima Azeem her son Shahid turned her strength when he was just four years old.

Recently, we stumbled upon an old interview of Shahid Kapoor. The actor had appeared as the celebrity guest on host Simi Garewal’s talk show ‘India’s Most Desirable’. And it was his mother Neelima herself who shared (through a special message) a heart touching incident between her and little Shahid. It was during the actor’s conversation when the host asked him that did his mother ever tell him about what she was going through, her kind of personal turmoil or did she not. To which, Shahid replied, “We were friends, so I mean we kind of spoke about everything. I spoke about how I felt, she spoke about how she felt.” (Also Read: Shahid Kapoor’s first heartbreak: Two most painful minutes of his life)

As he finished saying this, it was Neelima Azeem’s voice that was heard then. Her message recorded for him was played on a LED TV screen where she said, “Something so personal I want to share here with you is that when he was only four years old I mean obviously there were moments when at night I used to you know sometimes let go of the pain and the fears that come along with the divorce especially when you are as young as that. And I remember that I was… he found me crying maybe at some late hour at night and he took me on his chest at four years and he said ‘Mumma why you crying you know Main Hoon Na.’ I mean literally that film came (later on) and he said ‘Main Hoon Na’. And I don’t know from there onwards it just.. it just hit me that he is there with me you know and there is nothing to worry.”

On hearing this, Simi immediately asked, “Even now! You’re still there for her.” Shahid took a slight pause and replied, “I hope I am. But, when you become an adult and when you start working around the clock I always live with the guilt that I don’t give enough time to my family. So I hope I’m there for her.”

Shahid even mentioned in the show that his mother Neelima had never made him feel a hard time and her pain, being she was very good with that to hide.

Indeed, it is such a heart touching incident to remember shared by Shahid’s mother.
