in­ter­est­ing. And I be­lieve that’s how life should be ex­pe­ri­enced.” Sound ad­vice. While we’re dis­cussing re­la­tion­ships, I broach the topic of fren­e­mies in the film in­dus­try. Priyanka im­me­di­ately fires up, ready to tell me ex­actly what I’d thought I’d hear from her. “I think you should keep it [your friend list] to a few. That is one way of keep­ing your friend­ships strong. I be­lieve in all or noth­ing friend­ships; that’s why I keep very few friends around me. I don’t give a damn about them [fren­e­mies] be­cause I don’t need to be friendly with any­one I don’t like.” She couldn’t be clearer.

We’re now talk­ing about liv­ing out of a suit­case for weeks at a time. “My suit­cases are al­ways packed! I carry an en­tire suit­case for shoes. I have fewer clothes than shoes. I de­pend a lot on my stylist, Ami Pa­tel. She knows me very well and I brief her on what I’m feel­ing like. She is re­ally very spe­cific with the kind of clothes she gives me and that’s how we do it.”

When she’s back home, Priyanka keeps things ca­sual and com­fort­able, and she shares a very spe­cial re­la­tion­ship with—wait for it—her bed! “There are very few days [for re­lax­ing] be­cause I’m some­one who works al­most ev­ery day. When I do get an off, I’m usu­ally in a ganji and py­ja­mas, wrapped in my blan­ket. I like stay­ing in bed, read­ing in bed, eat­ing in bed, and watch­ing TV in bed.” She laughs, “my mat­tress and I get along re­ally well!”
