  • - Hi guys, I'm Priyanka Chopra-Jonas

  • and this is what I do in an entire day.

  • [upbeat music]

  • So a typical day when I'm filming The Sky is Pink,

  • say in Mumbai, because we shot all over,

  • we would have really early mornings

  • because we want the quiet.

  • It's basically this love story of this couple

  • that lose their child.

  • The grief of it, the joy of it,

  • celebrating the person who has lived

  • rather than mourning the person who has gone.

  • It's a very complex film

  • with many complex emotions,

  • and Aditi Chaudhary is a ferocious mom

  • who would do anything to make sure

  • that her daughter lives her biggest, best, longest life

  • and it was just a beautiful, beautiful thing

  • because I was raised by two ferociously protective

  • and possessive parents and I saw

  • how parents fight for their kids firsthand

  • and this was just very, very special to me on many levels.

  • So the movie travels a lot,

  • but we filmed all the set stuff and the set pieces in Mumbai

  • but we were on location in Delhi.

  • I would wake up around, say, quarter to six.

  • First thing in the morning I have to do

  • is check my phone [laughs].

  • I finish filming a big, big chunk of the movie

  • three days before I got married.

  • There was just so much going down

  • that I never was too far from my phone.

  • I would have my espresso, have my shower,

  • I'd get in my car.

  • We could take about 45 minutes to get to set, usually.

  • By the time I reached set,

  • I get into the zone of my character and I'm off hook.

  • I age from about 25 to 52.

  • In the movie, so we had different looks

  • for every decade or so that I played.

  • It was very subtle aging in the movie

  • because Shonali is a believer that, my director,

  • that women are never aged beautifully in movies somehow.

  • So at 50, why should a woman look dowdy?

  • I really agreed with that.

  • So it would take about two hours.

  • I would get into hair and makeup by about 7:00.

  • I would be ready to shoot by about nine o'clock,

  • but that process when I'm in my trailer,

  • it becomes like a cocoon.

  • It was a very intense movie with a lot of intense emotions

  • so the right music was important, like [laughs]

  • give me mood, give me angst, give me pain, sadness

  • and all of those things.

  • So that would happen.

  • I can't remember the specifics so I'm sorry.

  • It would be really funny if I did.

  • But I can't.

  • Walking from my trailer to set

  • is like a big, important zoning in sort of moment

  • because once I walk in the set, it's like all game.

  • Going to rehearsals, block the scene for us.

  • Shonali was very about what natural instinct

  • come to her actors

  • and she really depends on her actors and allows them to be.

  • I'm not method in a way where

  • I can't even have other thoughts.

  • I can't do that because then

  • you don't surprise yourself in a performance, I feel like.

  • Personally, as an an actor, I have to leave room for magic.

  • Then, while they set up the shot, I go sit on my chair,

  • have my coffee,

  • 'cause coffee doesn't leave my sight

  • for at least four hours after I've woken up.

  • Terrible, I know, I know,

  • but my brain needs to wake up.

  • After maybe 20 minutes of shooting a scene,

  • I would have 60, 65 messages.

  • Images and images and a million images of a million things

  • and especially friends saying like,

  • we can only get this wine

  • or only these flowers are available

  • or what is the right color of ivory

  • because I'm very specific

  • but it's also kind of like my fault

  • because I wanted to see everything.

  • [laughing] I sort of talk to myself saying it's my fault.

  • And while I was working, Nick would handle it

  • because he was in the US at that time,

  • so we conquered really well

  • because while he was in the US, it would be night here

  • and it would be day here, so while I was sleeping,

  • he could get a lot of work done.

  • I guess that's how we,

  • I ended up shooting a movie

  • and planning a wedding in five weeks.

  • I don't know.

  • I do have a few favorite apps.

  • During The Sky is Pink, I mean, it was a wedding app

  • created for a wedding, but outside of that,

  • I feel like people will judge me for this.

  • I like doing math [laughs].

  • So there's this app called Math 42.

  • It's like, really cool and stuff.

  • Yeah, I do math for fun, okay?

  • I do like to stay hydrated.

  • I forget to eat and drink sometimes

  • when I'm on set for sure,

  • so I definitely have my system and we negotiate in the day,

  • like today, we're gonna get through six bottles of water,

  • more like five bottles of water.

  • We call it Hydration Harassment

  • and like, water has to come in front of me

  • whenever I'm doing touchups

  • and I have to, especially with the kind of,

  • like how much coffee I drink

  • and the fact that I hardly sleep

  • and I'm always in different timezones and planes

  • and I also hydrate with coconut water.

  • In Mumbai, from the coconut itself.

  • It's pretty cool.

  • In Mumbai, I have a home, so I live at home

  • and location could mean two hours away,

  • location could mean half an hour away.

  • First Nick and I would connect about

  • the progress he made during the day

  • and the progress I made during the day

  • and then we'd talk about the things that we have to do

  • and then we'd speak to our wedding planners

  • on a conference call.

  • All this would happen while I'm coming back home

  • and then there were so many friends and so much family

  • at my house, so when I go back home,

  • it was like dinner, and there's so many people

  • and I love that, but just,

  • while you're filming a movie, it was a lot.

  • I, it was a lot [laughs].

  • But my friends and family are kinda great.

  • They know me.

  • So they know if I'm getting quiet

  • in the middle of a lot of people, I need time.

  • So my mom would be like, why don't you just go upstairs

  • and grab me blah, blah, blah?

  • And I'm very happy to do it

  • and come back after 45 minutes [laughs]

  • which everyone knew what I was doing so it's okay.

  • I usually am a wine kind of girl,

  • but that was before the wedding.

  • I was trying to like, lose weight, get into shape,

  • so I was off wine at that point.

  • I wasn't really drinking too much 'cause I was on films,

  • but I would definitely.

  • I would sleep by about 2:00, 3:00 in the morning.

  • It always takes me a least a half an hour to sleep.

  • Even if my body is just giving up,

  • especially with the high stress and pace of my job,

  • I need at least like an hour, hour and a half

  • to just sit down, talk, maybe watch TV, dinner,

  • but just to come down from the energy and the adrenaline.

  • I didn't get much sleep, so right after I wrapped,

  • about three, four days before the wedding,

  • I had to take a day and a half of just,

  • sleeping, you know, facial massage,

  • nails, like just one day of decompressing

  • and then I got straight out of the way.

  • - [Producers] Thank you so much.

  • [people clapping]

- Hi guys, I'm Priyanka Chopra-Jonas
