Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra, whose sizzling presence has light up the silver screen, Tuesday said she hates being termed a "sex symbol".
"I hate, rather detest, the phrase sex symbol being linked to me. I am not doing anything in my films to be rated like that. For me, acting is more important and it is talent alone that survives in the end," the 22-year-old actress said.
Here to announce her endorsement of cellular provider Spice Telecom for its new range of mobile services, she joked: "This is the first product that I am endorsing. May be, it will add spice to my life."
The actress had recently tasted success with "Mujhse Shaadi Karoge", which co-starred Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar.
She had also named the best actor in a negative role at the Filmfare awards ceremony last month.
