Everything Priyanka Chopra Does in a Day | Vanity Fair

published on July 2, 2020

– Hi guys, I'm Priyanka Chopra-Jonas

and this is what I do in an entire day

[upbeat music]

So a typical day when I'm
filming The Sky is Pink,

say in Mumbai, because we shot all over,

we would have really early mornings

because we want the quiet

It's basically this love
story of this couple

that lose their child

The grief of it, the joy of it,

celebrating the person who has lived

rather than mourning
the person who has gone

It's a very complex film

with many complex emotions,

and Aditi Chaudhary is a ferocious mom

who would do anything to make sure

that her daughter lives her
biggest, best, longest life

and it was just a
beautiful, beautiful thing

because I was raised by
two ferociously protective

and possessive parents and I saw

how parents fight for their kids firsthand

and this was just very, very
special to me on many levels

So the movie travels a lot,

but we filmed all the set stuff
and the set pieces in Mumbai

but we were on location in Delhi

I would wake up around,
say, quarter to six

First thing in the morning I have to do

is check my phone [laughs]

I finish filming a big,
big chunk of the movie

three days before I got married

There was just so much going down

that I never was too far from my phone

I would have my espresso, have my shower,

I'd get in my car

We could take about 45 minutes
to get to set, usually

By the time I reached set,

I get into the zone of my
character and I'm off hook

I age from about 25 to 52

In the movie, so we had different looks

for every decade or so that I played

It was very subtle aging in the movie

because Shonali is a
believer that, my director,

that women are never aged
beautifully in movies somehow

So at 50, why should a woman look dowdy?

I really agreed with that

So it would take about two hours

I would get into hair
and makeup by about 7:00

I would be ready to shoot
by about nine o'clock,

but that process when I'm in my trailer,

it becomes like a cocoon

It was a very intense movie
with a lot of intense emotions

so the right music was
important, like [laughs]

give me mood, give me
angst, give me pain, sadness

and all of those things

So that would happen

I can't remember the
specifics so I'm sorry

It would be really funny if I did

But I can't

Walking from my trailer to set

is like a big, important
zoning in sort of moment

because once I walk in the
set, it's like all game

Going to rehearsals,
block the scene for us

Shonali was very about
what natural instinct

come to her actors

and she really depends on her
actors and allows them to be

I'm not method in a way where

I can't even have other thoughts

I can't do that because then

you don't surprise yourself
in a performance, I feel like

Personally, as an an actor, I
have to leave room for magic

Then, while they set up the
shot, I go sit on my chair,

have my coffee,

'cause coffee doesn't leave my sight

for at least four hours
after I've woken up

Terrible, I know, I know,

but my brain needs to wake up

After maybe 20 minutes
of shooting a scene,

I would have 60, 65 messages

Images and images and a million
images of a million things

and especially friends saying like,

we can only get this wine

or only these flowers are available

or what is the right color of ivory

because I'm very specific

but it's also kind of like my fault

because I wanted to see everything

[laughing] I sort of talk to
myself saying it's my fault

And while I was working,
Nick would handle it

because he was in the US at that time,

so we conquered really well

because while he was in the
US, it would be night here

and it would be day here,
so while I was sleeping,

he could get a lot of work done

I guess that's how we,

I ended up shooting a movie

and planning a wedding in five weeks

I don't know

I do have a few favorite apps

During The Sky is Pink, I
mean, it was a wedding app

created for a wedding,
but outside of that,

I feel like people will judge me for this

I like doing math [laughs]

So there's this app called Math 42

It's like, really cool and stuff

Yeah, I do math for fun, okay?

I do like to stay hydrated

I forget to eat and drink sometimes

when I'm on set for sure,

so I definitely have my system
and we negotiate in the day,

like today, we're gonna get
through six bottles of water,

more like five bottles of water

We call it Hydration Harassment

and like, water has to come in front of me

whenever I'm doing touchups

and I have to, especially
with the kind of,

like how much coffee I drink

and the fact that I hardly sleep

and I'm always in different
timezones and planes

and I also hydrate with coconut water

In Mumbai, from the coconut itself

It's pretty cool

In Mumbai, I have a
home, so I live at home

and location could mean two hours away,

location could mean half an hour away

First Nick and I would connect about

the progress he made during the day

and the progress I made during the day

and then we'd talk about the
things that we have to do

and then we'd speak to
our wedding planners

on a conference call

All this would happen
while I'm coming back home

and then there were so many
friends and so much family

at my house, so when I go back home,

it was like dinner, and
there's so many people

and I love that, but just,

while you're filming
a movie, it was a lot

I, it was a lot [laughs]

But my friends and family are kinda great

They know me

So they know if I'm getting quiet

in the middle of a lot
of people, I need time

So my mom would be like, why
don't you just go upstairs

and grab me blah, blah, blah?

And I'm very happy to do it

and come back after 45 minutes [laughs]

which everyone knew what
I was doing so it's okay

I usually am a wine kind of girl,

but that was before the wedding

I was trying to like, lose
weight, get into shape,

so I was off wine at that point

I wasn't really drinking too
much 'cause I was on films,

but I would definitely

I would sleep by about
2:00, 3:00 in the morning

It always takes me a least
a half an hour to sleep

Even if my body is just giving up,

especially with the high
stress and pace of my job,

I need at least like an
hour, hour and a half

to just sit down, talk,
maybe watch TV, dinner,

but just to come down from
the energy and the adrenaline

I didn't get much sleep,
so right after I wrapped,

about three, four days before the wedding,

I had to take a day and a half of just,

sleeping, you know, facial massage,

nails, like just one day of decompressing

and then I got straight out of the way

– [Producers] Thank you so much

[people clapping]
