Nagra Not Jealous Of Knightley's Fame
British actress PARMINDER NAGRA often becomes "frustrated" her career hasn't reached the same heights of success as her BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM co-star KEIRA KNIGHTLEY.
The soccer movie's lead actress refuses to be bitter about Knightley's phenomenal rise to Hollywood superstardom - thanks to films like PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: THE CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL and KING ARTHUR - and credits powerful industry bosses with launching her big screen career, not necessarily her acting talent.
Parminder, 28 - who currently stars in American medical TV drama ER - says, "Yes her career has been amazing, but I don't feel a pang when I look at it.
"This is a very competitive business, but one of the things I learned very early on is not to take things personally.
"You can get frustrated, sure, but getting breaks is nothing to do with Keira.
"That's to do with a lot of people, producers and directors, and whether they are able to take risks."20/09/2004 09:15
