Meera Chopra: Lockdown  Grouse Maha Annoying To Have Name My Welded To Priyanka Chopra



When this week actress Meera Chopra’s father  was robbed   of his phone  she was  none too pleased when the news came  out  announcing her as “Priyanka Chopra’s cousin”.

The  epithet has become  a permanent part  of  Meera’s media exposure and she hates it.

“May  I  please humbly  request the media  to  let me have my own identity? Of course I am very proud of  my cousin. But  I’d like to think  there is more to me than my  cousin. At  least  , let me  try to make my own way in life. If I am only going to be someone’s cousin all my life I don’t have  much to show to my children  and grandchildren,  do I?” Meera asks .

Meera is  currently in Delhi  during the nationwide lockdown with her parents. And  she is  learning a new  skill. “No not baking cakes . I am learning  online how to  perform acupressure . My dad and mom use to get it done by  a specialist every other day, and it helped them sleep and it even helped   my dad’s diabetes.So now I  am doing that at home for  them.It’s such a good practice.”

Otherwise the lockdown is turning into an ordeal for  Meera. “It’s turning bad now.I am just bored and irritated, I need to get back to work.It’s nice to spend time with family but now I’ve got so used to living alone that I need to get back to Mumbai.”

As she awaits the end of the lockdown Meera is keeping herself busy at home in  Delhi.  “Besides  the   online  course  in  acupressure I  am doing lot of singing, cooking.  And then  I have two  small nieces .With them  around the day just goes  by.Baking cakes and working-out at home  .. honestly   I  am not able to do that either.I don’t get motivated enough to work-out at home.A few times when I  went out for a run I realised Delhi is really not a place where a girl can run on the  road. So until the lockdown ends  no more  running around.”
