While she doesn’t ad­mit to or deny be­ing in a re­la­tion­ship with any­one, ac­tor Priyanka Cho­pra says that she has never let a busy sched­ule come in the way of her love life. “I have never said that I don’t have time for love. You don’t need to make time for love. Love just hap­pens. As far as my re­la­tion­ship sta­tus goes, it’s for me to know |and you to find out,” says the 33-year-old, who was rush­ing for a shoot of her Amer­i­can show Quantico at Los An­ge­les at 5.30 in the morn­ing when we spoke to her.

Priyanka has been busy bal­anc­ing her show as well as her up­com­ing film Ba­ji­rao Mas­tani, which is why she has to travel a lot. While she says that this has made her sched­ule hec­tic, she is glad that she is able to be a part of both the projects. “I have to shoot Ba­ji­rao Mas­tani this month. It’s (bal­anc­ing the two) phys­i­cally ex­haust­ing and I am very tired all the time. But it is my choice and I want to be able to do both, so I guess I will have to suck it up and just do it,” she says.

She has col­lab­o­rated with rap­per Akon and mu­si­cian Pit­bull and now plays a lead in an in­ter­na­tional show, but Priyanka says that she still does not feel like a su­per­star. “I never felt like a star even with my work in In­dia or here (LA). I’m an achiever and I like be­ing able to achieve. For me, it has al­ways been to ex­tend my­self as an artist and I have been very lucky for the op­por­tu­ni­ties that have come my way. It’s not some­thing that is tan­gi­ble. I be­lieve our achieve­ments cre­ate our legacy,” she says.

While the show is yet to air in In­dia, Priyanka has her fin­gers crossed and hopes that the au­di­ence likes her per­for­mance. “It is a new show and I am a new ac­tor in this land. So I am ner­vous. I am also ner­vous about re­ac­tions from peo­ple who al­ready know my work. Will they like what I have done? As an ac­tor you al­ways think about these things be­fore a re­lease. But when you are done with it, then it is out of your hands. The re­sult is the sum of the cu­mu­la­tive ef­fort of all the peo­ple work­ing on the show. Let’s hope that it is pos­i­tive,” she says.

The ac­tor says that she was also very wor­ried about her ac­cent on the show and is glad that peo­ple are lik­ing it. “Thank god. I was very stressed out about hav­ing to do an Amer­i­can ac­cent. There can be a thin line and there are times when I have crossed it. I had a di­alect coach with me on the sets ev­ery day.”
