CHENNAI, NEW YORK and LONDON, April 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

- The Actor Opens up About Moving From Movies to Music to Fulfill her Father's Dream in the April Edition

- NOTCH Fan Base Nears the One Million Mark

NOTCH, India's first digital lifestyle entertainer, launches its seventh edition with leading lady Priyanka Chopra. In an open and honest interview, the star spoke about why she hates singing live - "I like to be prepared and I don't think I am so ready right now"; and how her father's ailing health was a huge cause for concern. "I am only back from his bedside to honour my professional commitments. I pray he gets better. I do love him - he is the wind beneath my wings."



Priyanka also shows her protective side with advice for li'l sis Parineeti Chopra. "I am sure Parineeti, who is a strong-willed girl with her heart in the right place, will chart her own path in the unforgiving world of Bollywood. My only advice for her as an older sis would be to be herself and not get overwhelmed by the glitz and glamour - that way you can protect yourself from getting hurt," she says.

Magazine Highlights

Anupam Kher who's had a sterling year with the Oscar-nominated Silver Linings Playbook admits it was Robert De Niro who left him star-struck. "The first time I met Robert De Niro in his trailer, I started to cry, which made him very uncomfortable. It's because I come from a small town that I am not indifferent about life - that sense of wonderment is still alive," he confesses to NOTCH.

Ashton Kutcher admits living Steve Jobs' life to get his performance pitch-perfect. "I worked for months researching every aspect of Jobs' personality, even adopting his 'fruitarian' diet. The fruitarian diet can lead to like severe issues, and I went to the hospital doubled over in pain. It was really terrifying," he says, talking about the much-awaited biopic Jobs.

Kareena Kapoor has often gushed about Gstaad, and she shares details of her Alpine getaways with NOTCH, giving readers a ringside view of the fondue-infused fun times that she and Saif Ali Khan have. "It's the snow. It keeps my mind off everything else and brings me a lot of peace," she explains.
