Hate her or love her, you can’t ignore Priyanka Chopra Jonas. With her newest cover on Vogue, she spoke about the changes she went through for Bollywood. 

Priyanka Chopra, the lovely daughter of India, has become a sensation in Hollywood! But wait, she has a great story behind the glorious career that made her mark even in Hollywood. Her journey to success was not easy.

On the September Vogue cover, Priyanka is absolutely flawless. She also opened up about her failures in a manner that would help any woman to keep going. She spoke about the unpleasant yelling she had to deal with at the start of her career.

Priyanka is a fighter! 

“I didn’t know anything or anyone. I was yelled at by directors, I was thrown into movies, I was thrown out of movies,” she said.

Her father was a source of inspiration and she still keeps his memories close to her heart.

“The more you talk, the less you will listen and the less you will learn. I taught myself confidence. I learnt it’s what you do after failure that makes you a success,” she said.

Bollywood’s idea of a female body and Priyanka  

Priyanka Chopra: A Dark Horse, (the actor’s biography) was published in 2018 by Bharathi S Pradhan. This revealed the hardships at the start of her film career.

Bollywood always had its own idea of a female body where Priyanka was forced to do a nose job as a part of beautification despite being ‘Miss World’ in 2000.

Like many other women in Bollywood, she went through a phase where her body and appearance were shamed. So she had to change herself in a ‘better way’, that was considered to be the perfect female lead.

However she fought over and over, with the inner demons and outer world and became one of the bold and beautiful among the divas of Bollywood

Be a true fighter like Priyanka Chopra!
