New Delhi [India], Mar. 25 (ANI): She may have carved a niche for herself across borders, but it looks like Priyanka Chopra is very much connected to her roots. In an interview to Marie Claire, the 34-year-old actor said, "I am like most Indian people. Because we are such an old culture, like 5,000 years old, there are a lot of little superstitions. So if something good happens in my life, I don't like talking about it too much." "I believe a lot in evil eye. It's called 'nazar' in India. If something nice or good is happening, you protect it," she added. She recently shared the link of the interview on her Twitter handle. PeeCee's forthcoming 'Baywatch' movie landed her eighth American magazine cover for its April issue, wherein she opened up about trusting her gut. "I like to find my own way, which is something my parents always encouraged in me," she says. "They were like: 'You got you.' I think my inherent sense of confidence comes from that. Also, my mom used to always tell me, 'You could make the biggest screw-up on the planet, but you can come tell me and I'll help you fix it.' And my dad used to tell me, 'You kill someone, break a car, you come and tell me. I'll fix it for you.'" The 'Quantico' star also talked about philanthropy and how that has been an essential part of her childhood. "Giving back was a big part of my upbringing. When you get so much, you've got to find a way to give back. You don't need a fat wallet. Time is something each one of us has and all it really takes to make the world better-and intention" (ANI)
