Mumbai: Celebrities are no stranger to controversies, and Priyanka Chopra knows this. Having tasted her share of link-up rumours in the Hindi film industry, the actress admits that controversies do affect her family.

The former Miss World, who has been in Bollywood for a decade, has been caught up in several controversies - a fight with actress Kareena Kapoor and link-ups with married actors like Akshay Kumar and Shah Rukh Khan.

The family girl says that such controversies hurt.

"I am very private as a person and I believe that by giving a statement to controversies, I am giving importance to them due to which many more articles will pop up," Priyanka told us.

"Usually, they are very trivial things. I get very hurt and affected by controversies. I am a very family girl and controversies affect my family. I would rather just keep quiet," she said.

"I am very black and white and have always been honest. I believe in honesty, but I don't believe that the entire world should know about my personal life. I am very private which I think is my right."

The 31-year-old has been a part of multilingual films but wants to explore more.

"I have done Hollywood, Bollywood and Tollywood - everything in just one month. I am an actor. Make me do any film. I worship my work. I don't have any priorities nor am I looking for any big crossovers.

"I like expanding myself and as an artist wherever I can show my creativity in different ways, be it music, acting or anything. I never take my work for granted," she said.
