Priyanka Chopra is known as one of the most poignant and powerful female figures in the industry. She has gone leaps and bounds to stand true to what she believes and smash the patriarchy.
Priyanka in her memoir 'Unfinished' spoke about her experience when she was bullied as a child in school for being brown.
Even in an interview with Barkha Dutt, she had spoken about how all her cousins were gora chitta and she was called kali, even though it was in a fun manner.
She said she was born dusky because her dad is dusky and she would put talcum powder on her face to look fair. She had also spoken about how everyone in India is so obsessed with skin lightening snd how easy it is for actors to endorse such products.
She mentioned that she regrets doing such commercials and stopped doing it ever since she moved to Hollywood because she felt bad doing it.
Unfinished will be released on February 9. The book chronicles Priyanka’s childhood, facing racism during her teenage years in the US, winning Miss India and Miss World and becoming the top actress in Bollywood, and becoming a global icon.
