With the success of content-driven films led by women like Anushka Sharma and Kangana Ranaut, one lady who is sitting back and smiling is Priyanka Chopra, who recalls how she was called "silly" for choosing to do a movie like Fashion back in 2008.
Having watched Anushka's production NH10, Priyanka was all praise for the latter for keeping the flag of "girl power" flying high.
