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.
“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.
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!

If her MIL had accepted her with some affection, wouldn't they have built a mutually happier relationship by now?
The incident took place ten years ago.
Smita could visit her mother only in summers when her daughter had school holidays. Her daughter also enjoyed meeting her Nani, and both of them had done their reservations for a week. A month before their visit, her husband told her, “My mom is coming for 4-5 months!”
Smita shuddered. She knew the repercussions. She would have to hear sarcastic comments from her mother-in-law for visiting her mother. She may make these comments directly only a bit, but her servants would be flooded with the words, “How horrible she is! She leaves me and goes!”
Are we so swayed by star power and the 'entertainment' quotient of cinema that satisfies our carnal instincts that we choose to ignore our own subconscious mind which always knows what is right and what is wrong?
Trigger Warning: This has graphic descriptions of violence and may be triggering to survivors and victims of violence.
Do you remember your first exposure to an extremely violent act or the aftermath of a violent act?
I am pretty sure for most of us it would be through cinema. But I remember very vividly my first exposure to aftermath of an unbelievably grotesque violent act in real life. It was as a student at a Dental College and Hospital.
