Mumbai – Bollywood’s multi-talented star Priyanka Chopra admires international pop star-cum-actress Beyonce Knowles for the balance that she has struck in personal and professional life.

“I admire Beyonce a lot because she is an amazing performer and more than anything, she balances her personal and professional life very well,” Priyanka said here.

“She has a child, and at the same time, her professional life also, which is amazing! That’s the kind of a person I would like to be – who can balance both personal and professional life together,” she added.

Priyanka, who is charting her own singing career after becoming a successful actress, says it was her late father, who always wanted her to be a singer.

The 31-year-old has already launched two international singles – “In my city” and “Exotic”.

But it was a well-timed decision to get into the singing field, she believes.

“In the beginning of my career, I never knew acting. I have learnt everything in my career itself. When you have gone to acting school, when you are in the film industry, there is some familiarity, but I didn’t have these familiarities.

“So it took some time and when I reached somewhere, I got this opportunity of music and that time I was little more comfortable in films and my dad really wanted me to do it,” Priyanka said.
