Priyanka’s Love Life

“Looking back on that time in my life, I see that I was working way too hard both professionally and personally. I made four films a year for almost a decade. In order to do that, I worked fifteen or 18 hour days, including weekends. That’s simply the investment that was required if I wanted to reach the highest echelons of the film industry in India. But it left me almost no time outside of work, and as I reflect on that period now, I wonder if that’s how the problem started,” Priyanka opened up on her erratic working style. 

“I know that I felt guilty about having so little time to spend with whomever I was dating during those years and so I’d end up over-compensating. I would prioritize my partners’ schedules over mine, cancelling work commitments or what little time I had with friends and family in order to accommodate the needs of my partner at the time.

‘Professionalism Disappears’

I never missed a shot, but I might go late to set, or I would keep set waiting because I was on a phone call in my trailer. The professionalism with which I normally conducted myself seemed to disappear when I was romantically involved with someone. It would be years I figured out why I fell into this pattern,” The White Tiger actress revealed. 

The Salaam-E-Ishq actress revealed that she took a break from dating and decided to focus on herself. She also opened up on coming to terms with her father’s death. “In 2016, after my last breakup, I consciously decided that it was time to take a daying hiatus. I was finally realizing that whatever I was doing in relationships wasn’t working, and I knew I needed to focus on myself in order to understand why.

Equally important, maybe more so, was the fact that my father had died more than two years earlier and I was still struggling with that grief. I had initially tried to block out my emotional devastation by throwing myself even harder into work if that’s possible. But my grief, my confusion, and my exhaustion were all catching up with me and I was coming to understand that I needed time alone, time without a relationship. So after being in back-to-back relationships for more than a decade, I hit the pause button hard,” the actress said.
