New Delhi, Sept. 17 -- Actor Priyanka Chopra's remark last month, about how female actors cannot take credit for ' 100crore successes, sparked off many agitated comments from her peers.

While Kareena Kapoor Khan said clearly that she does not agree with PeeCee, her Agneepath co-star Hrithik Roshan said that a film is a team effort. However, despite the criticism, Priyanka still stands by what she said.

"I don't know why people have to be delusional and illogical. Why are people scared to be honest ... I still stand by my statement," says the 32-year-old.

But the actor clarifies that while there are few films such as Barfi! (2012) which could not have received their glory without her contribution, there are others, for which she refuses to take the credit. "I was talking about my own films. I can't take credit for Krrish 3 and Don 2; it will be foolish for me to do that. I had a huge supporting act in them. But for Barfi!, the credit should go to me, Ileana as well as Ranbir," says the actor, also adding that both Alia Bhatt and Arjun Kapoor should be given credit for 2 States (2013), and Katrina Kaif should get credit for Raajneeti (2010).

PeeCee, who is basking in the glory of her recent success, lauds the male actors, who she feels carry the entire film on their shoulders.

"The boys go all out every time. I have a newfound respect for them after this film (Mary Kom biopic)," she says. However, she adds that she loves promoting her films. "I love promotions. I love talking about my work ... it makes me feel proud. But at times your body does not keep up," says the actor, who had tweeted how exhausted the recent promotions left her.
