Forbes covers the intersection of entrepreneurship, wealth, technology, business and lifestyle with a focus on people and success.
Priyanka is all about bragging herself, it would be nice if she could learn from Americans how to be humble. Thats what she needs to LEARN. P.S she was privileged to be from educated family and to be able to go to states. It would be have been shameful if she hadn't achieved all this even after so many resources available to her. PS i am taking her hardwork's credit. Breaking barriers is when you are from literally poor and unprivileged family.
The way the Bollywood woman conducts herself on stage - very annoying. The next time they might as well have Kim Kardashian up on stage instead. She is way more successful (by their definition), and maybe knows how to talk in a non-patronizing, less pretentious and thoughtful way. And I can't even stand the Kardashian. Or, get the entertainment gibberish nonsense completely out of Forbes, please.
Not jealous but biased here. How can they even remotely compare Indira Nooyi's accomplishments to a Bollywood person's accomplishments?? Indira Nooyi's challenges are real. Her work impacts many lives, families, and careers directly. Her challenges in the corporate world are real. Her work needs some hard-core brain power. She is closer to being called brilliant. The Bollywood woman's - not so much. Dancing around trees and bushes and acting bimbo-ish - not a real accomplishment, sorry. She had the looks and height to get through the Miss. World challenge (not a challenge that requires massive brain-power by any means). That gave her an automatic ticket to the movie industry. Dance around trees a lot, and act glamorous in skimpy clothes - and she made it. Yes, she is successful but so is Kim Kardashian.
this interview of Priyanka is the only one I watched where she seems a little true.... otherwise I knew she was a true person, but none of her interviews showed that. It felt like she was trying to fit everywhere. Well, may be sitting close to Indira Nooyi made her humble. Good Job Priyanka!
Indira Nooyi is INDRA NOOYI
Priyanka Chopra is PRIYANKA CHOPRA
Both are two different people. With their own stories.
Why are we comparing?
Ms Nooyi might excel in her corporate world but maybe not in Ms Chopra's world, and vice versa.
Take pride in who these two women are and their achievements, what ever they might be.
This was about women who've managed to hold their fort and excelled in their respective fields.
Priyanka is so fake! She hasn’t done a good Bollywood movie except for Don and she hasn’t made in Hollywood either. Baywatch was such a shit movie and so is her show. She may soon have to start from scratch or start sleeping around with people way younger than her to make it to the news of the day. Such a looser!
Seriously Priyanka Chopra, is she a good example for women around the world especially Indians, she is in her late 30s, not married, running after money and fame, sucking, kissing and licking whoever she finds in her career and outside.
"We have to create our own Sisterhood, we need to have our own safe spot, where we can talk about our issues, because we can't talk about it at home, nobody wants to hear you talk about your work at home, we need our environment where our Sisterhood does not judge us, but gives us constructive feedback."
"The only way we are going to be able to balance everything going forward is if we don't worry that the person next to us, the woman next to us, is gonna take away our future potential because the next level is going to have a fewer women, rather say let's pull us all, let's put ourselves each other, and that sisterhood needs to form and when we get there, I think there is no stopping us." - Indra Nooyi <3
I don’t think any comparison between the two is valid, they are both successful in their own space. I personally feel an actress’s role is under great pressure due to greater public scrutiny than the CEO of a soda firm. An actress needs to manage many known and unknown stakeholders whereas a corporate woman just need to tame her management. PeeCee is a great example for sheer talent in many rights. In that sense, Pepsi Cola hasn’t enriched anyone’s life. Maybe Quaker Oats did, but that was just an easy acquisition.
Forbes- Stop interviewing these nonsense bollywood ppl and their fake 'breaking barriers' to get more views. If u want to interview real Indian women who "broke barriers and inspire us", start with Mrs.Sudha Murthy. Ritu Karidhal, Nandini Harinath, Anuradha TK( all three are Mangalyaan/ Mars Mission Scientists), and then we have Jayshree Ullal, Neerja Sethi who are only Indian-American entrepreneurs among the 60 women on Forbe's 2018 list.
It seems like a Tiger and a Monkey are sitting and having a conversation. The Tiger is very focused and articulate while the Monkey is just blabbing nonsense all over the place. Just to clarify, the Tiger being Indra Nooyi and the Monkey is not the host.
You see, one needs such supportive parents as that of Indra Nooyi's father and Priyanka's both father and mother to get to where they are today. Parents support(especially of father) is very crucial in a child's growth & success, if your father is the exact opposite of 'supportive' then it becomes very difficult to succeed in life and unfortunately i am one of those kid who did not get a good father like Indra and Priyanka. I still hope i achieve what i want to 😥
agar priyanka thora parhez kary overacting se tu bht acha hoga har interview me ye apny parents k bary me kehty hai k mera baap surgeon tha meri maa doctor thi ufffffff ye sun sun kar hum pakh chuky hai plzzzzz kch naya ho jaye ms chopra
I think it’s extremely important to make a comment here on the last part of the video- the part about feminism: I do agree with Priyanka on the fact that women shouldn’t be judged for making their own choices. However the part, where she says that only the best girl will get the best boy and that women are told to fit into a box; the same happens to men. They are supposed to be macho and win over the girls and be super strong, that’s wrong too. I feel the world suffers from sexism, which needs to be fought by everyone. Men are told to be a certain way , because of which they hurt women and in turn are bigger victims. As they perpetrate abuse. Inculcating love and the spirit of humanity is most important
Still unclear as what barriers PChopra broke. She is born to high educated and open minded parents, who encouraged her and she got all right chances. Interview those women who really broke barriers and overcome obstacles in her life and become role model to other girls. phmph!
Can't put together an accomplished CEO with hyped, overrated , overpaid bollywood actress on same stage. Am sick of these bollywood stars being put on pedestal as gods/goddess- who did nothing but are overpaid ppl for their not so great skills. So many other much more deserving Indian Women out there - Sudha Murthy (my fav), Kiran Mazumdar Shaw, Urvi A Piramal , Chanda Kochhar, Mallika Srinivasan etc to name few. Priyanka Chopra ... seriously!? Would have been feast to eyes and brain to watch Indira Nooyi and Mrs. Sudha Murthy on one stage - discussing and sharing their experiences and knowledge!
Two different personalities with perspectives on what shaped their lives. Coming from Indian backgrounds and the impact it has had in their lives is interesting to hear. It takes conviction and clarity to achieve and be able to talk about it as to what made you who you are. Good interview - enjoyed listening !
Interviewer: talking about PepsiCo” ..it’s a $150 billion company, ...that’s a lot of decimals”. Indira Nooyi corrects her immediately “ That’s a lot of zeros ..” If the interviewer is from the Forbes family (Moira Forbes), a business family, she should know there are NO decimals in billions.’
Priyanka seems to act like a small girl who has got her favourite candy for the first time. I mean look how Indra took up the question and answered the question. Indra where is someone of substance, Priyanka is more a cover girl
two powerful women...loved Indra's speech, i heard her 1st time. I cannot think anyother celebrity sitting instead Priyanka as she totally deserves it and justice to that seat. why other actresses, i cannot imagne there is beacuse they are simply been bollywood candies...Priyanka is academic person, she thinks for evry character way different than other actresses did .
By Priyanka from this interview... thank you.... <3
"I don't believe that you can sit and wish for something and it'll Happen. The soles of your feet have to be Blistered. There's no pretty picture of Hardwork. There's no Success Story that doesn't have shadows of Pain, Doubt, Fear, Lack of Sleep, Illness...but when you step out into the Light, all that gets hidden. The effort and the struggle gets hidden. The Path is Not Easy for Any Success Story."
American and European companies that have Indian-born and raised CEOs are Google, Microsoft, Adobe, PepsiCo, MasterCard, Harman International, Deloitte, Cognizant, Palo Alto Networks, Novartis, Nokia, Reckitt Benckiser, NetApp, Diageo, Global Foundries, Conduent. And then there ton of other Indians who are at a different C-Level position, such as the CIO of Facebook.
Yes. Real Social Activists and workers are stupid to work hard in distressed areas and take educational degrees in Social Work... Just become an actress, visit some wartorn region and UN will confer some title on you and you automatically become an Activist??? This is so evil.
SuperIntuitive Womaniya Don't show your fake deshbhakti, just like those bjp it cells does on twitter.
Agar sach mein kuchh karna hota toh kyun kuch nahi ukhaad paye show makers ke.
Sirf publicity ke liye ye sab natak.
Instead of focusing on serious issues, they focus on these things. And a celebrity is an easy target as they are popular, election times, votes necessity.🤦
SuperIntuitive Womaniya She didn't kill anybody rofl, u r comparing this to killing somebody & apologizing later? Haha...
This a total different thing & i dont see so much hype when so many real life crimes are happening in the country. Just because she's a public person, she is an easy target! If you are so vocal about this, then raise voice about other issues too, or just show your fake nationalism😉😁
Vikram Singh btw, do you think young people read disclaimers when they watch such shit??? What will they think abt India?? I have nothing against showing the reality... Like the documentary on nirbhaya... Cause it was true... But this plot of the serial was exactly opposite of the truth that we are living for years.
Chukwuemeka Ugoanyanwu soo true I have seen so much hate for Indian actresses from Indians , don't you have brains to understand that they are representing you on a global level while the West only saw us based on stereotypes .
Gomz G I wouldn't say that she has not achieved much. Actually, she is quite successful. I also think she is quite talented. We should give the credit where it's due. But it doesn't change the fact that she comes across as over confident and fake.
