Celebrated Indian actor Priyanka Chopra has revealed she is bored of being asked about "catfights" with her female co-stars.

Chopra, who is married to pop star Nick Jonas, thinks female stars are often unfairly pitted against each other, unlike their male counterparts.

"People always ask me, 'You're doing a movie with a female actor. Did you guys get along? Were there catfights?' But when it comes to boys, they say, 'Oh, my gosh. That's a bromance, and everyone works so well'," she said.

Ultimately, Priyanka blames the situation on a lack of opportunities for female performers.

"The more opportunity we create for each other, the more sisterhood will grow," she explained.

"We're 50 per cent of the world population, we need to be represented in every field. We need to be empowered by each other, by people who are in positions of power, by putting [women] in positions of power."
