Actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas is set to appear in the web series Citadel alongside actor Richard Madden. She recently confessed that she is not fond of performing stunts on set. According to a report by Deadline Priyanka recounted her experiences of performing her own stunts, not only for her American TV show but also for the Bollywood films she has been a part of.
Priyanka Chopra Jonas reveals she learned to do her own stunts; says, “I was working 15 – 20 years ago when I didn’t even have stunt doubles”
Priyanka said, “I trust myself to do it, the mandate from the filmmakers was, we would love for the actors’ faces to be seen as much as you can and where you feel safe. I’m someone who has tremendous experience with action movies and action parts. Not just with my TV show, but my Bollywood action movies. I was working 15 – 20 years ago when I didn’t even have stunt doubles. I had a little man wearing a wig with shaved arms that used to do stunts for me that were too dangerous because we didn’t even have women at that time. So, I learned how to do my stuff.”
Priyanka explained how she obtained the scar above her left eyebrow after it had an unfortunate encounter with the camera. Recalling the incident, she said, “It was at the end of a rainy London day, and we were losing light so it was, ‘Let’s rush, rush, rush the ground was wet’, and I went an inch in front of where I was supposed to stop. So, the camera came an inch closer to me and the matte box took out my eyebrow. But you know, I have a cool scar and a good story to tell. I just put some surgical glue on her and closed her up and finished the day.”
Priyanka further added, “I didn’t want to come back and have to do that whole thing again was just like, ‘Let’s just get it done.’ I had fake blood and mud and stuff on my face anyway so you couldn’t even tell.”
On the work front, Priyanka has Citadel. It is produced by the Russo Brothers’ AGBO and showrunner David Weil. Alongside Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Richard Madden, the 6-episode series features Stanley Tucci and Lesley Manville in pivotal roles. She also has Love Again and Heads of State in her pipeline.
