Treatment in foreign film sets: Priyanka speaks
 
She might have become one of the most successful Indian stars in the West, but actress Priyanka Chopra has said she did not go to Hollywood with the attitude that people will instantly recognise her.

The 34yearold actress said she is fine with giving her introduction to people who do not know her.

"We can't say that if we are stars in India we will be stars everywhere. That's not cool. Every country has different celebrities. So, I never expected that.

"I am okay to walk into a room and introduce myself as, 'Hello, I am Priyanka Chopra. I am an Indian actor.' There's nothing small about it, our achievements are quite big," Priyanka told reporters.

The actress said the American media was never mean to her "except a few" and she never felt insignificant on a foreign film set.

"I haven't seen them (American press) being that good to any other Indian actor if you think like that. They have been loving, friendly and encouraging of me...

"We are onefifth of the world's population so, our representation in world cinema is legit. It's on us, we have to make sure we are good enough. But I don't feel small when I walk in a foreign set," she said.

Priyanka's maiden Hollywood film "Baywatch" releases on May 25.
