The 37-year-old married her 27-year-old hubby in a lavish ceremony in her native India last December.
"But especially now that I'm married, Nick and I really want to set down our roots together," she added. "I'm not someone who has a bucket list. I don't make long term plans. They say, 'Man proposes, God disposes.'"
Despite being one of Bollywood's top paid actresses, who's married to one of America's most recognizable musicians, who in turn have a combined net worth of around $45million give or take, Priyanka is not about to rest on her laurels while dreams go unachieved.
"I guess to achieve what you want, you have to sacrifice a few things. There's no free lunch in the world," she said. "It takes dedication, hard work and perseverance. And I've never been afraid of that."
In a separate interview with India Today, she gave an example of this hard work, revealing she was filming her latest project — "The Sky Is Pink" — right up to just four days before her wedding; so close in fact, that Nick had to handle a lot of the organization himself.
"I was filming till four days before my wedding," she said. "I have to give a lot of credit to Nick because he came down earlier than he was supposed to."
"Nick told me 'I know you are doing a difficult movie and I know you need your focus on it. And let me handle the logistics. I'll take over the last bit of things.'"
"So he used to sit at home while I was on the set and decide who is sitting where, seating charts and rooming charts and he would do all of that so that I could focus on the movie."
