Priyanka Chopra Jonas: When I entered films, I was told ‘hero will decide who heroine will be’

She has always taken the road less travelled in a career spanning 17 years. From starring in a film that exposed the behind-the-scenes controversies of the fashion world (Fashion; 2008) to playing a character with grey shades in 7 Khoon Maaf (2011) or stepping into the shoes of boxer Mary Kom (2014) in her biopic, Priyanka Chopra Jonas has always earned applause for her acting chops.

India vs Australia 2nd ODI: Rohit Sharma 46 runs away from going past Sourav Ganguly, Sachin Tendulkar and Brian Lara in Rajkot

When all the focus was on the incoming delivery from the left-armer, India vice captain Rohit Sharma was done by a Mitchell Starc cross-seam delivery in the first ODI at Mumbai. In his attempt to hit it over the infield, Rohit had miss-timed the Starc delivery straight to David Warner at mid-off. Rohit is experienced and classy enough not to repeat the same mistake – he can’t afford it either – when India face Australia to keep the series alive in the 2nd ODI at Rajkot on Friday. If there was need of some added motivation for Rohit, then the India opener is inches away from becoming the third fastest to 9000 ODI runs.
