Priyanka Chopra is an International Star now, after making her mark in Bollywood she has made her mark in Hollywood too!
After starring as the lead Alex Parish in “Quantico”, she played the bad girl in “Baywatch” and will be seen in her upcoming projects “A kid like Jake” and “Isn’t it Romantic”.
She for sure is a global name now, but she went through her share of problems in her struggling days!
Madhu Chopra, her mother shared few incidents in an interview, from her struggling days!
She said “She was just 17 when she entered the industry, so I accompanied her every minute of the day till about three years ago. So a gentleman meets her and says: ‘Will your mother sit outside while I narrate the story to you?’ Priyanka told him, ‘If it is a story that my mother can’t hear then it is a story that I cannot do.’ She walked out of that project — a prestigious one.”
Well she for sure took a very nice decision!
She also shared another incident, “Another time, a designer told her that the director’s brief was to dress her in itsy-bitsy clothes. The director had said, ‘What is the point of having a Miss World in front of the camera if we cannot show her as her beautiful self?’ Priyanka refused to do the film. It was being helmed by a reputed director and he got upset. Priyanka lost 10 films because she walked out of that project. But she didn’t care. That is what I say to everyone. This is not the end of your life. Your life is more valuable.”
Priyanka stood firm on her morals, and losing 10 films didn’t make her weak, because her mother was always there, supporting her in every manner possible.
And the rest is history that we all have witnessed!
You took a brave step Priyanka, and so should we!
