Bollywood Diva Priyanka Chopra, who was named among Forbes’ World’s Most Powerful Women List 2017, lost 10 films for standing up to sleazy men in Bollywood, her mother has revealed.
Her mother said, “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,” she said, claiming the director got upset and the Quantico star 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.”

“They gave Priyanka a lot of respect. If you live on your own terms, the struggle is bigger but the outcome is sweeter too,” she said.
Speaking about ambition, she said that it is wanting to be the best version of yourself. I have learned that over time. But of course, there are dark moments when you’re just like, ‘I can’t do this,’ and you feel scared, she added.
However, she claimed to never let these feelings bring her spirit down. “I never say ‘no’ to anything because you never know the new experience that will come your way. Yes, it’s really hard sometimes. As a girl, as someone who didn’t know anyone in the business or the entertainment industry, it was very solitary, my journey. It’s been very long, and that’s been the hard part. It makes you vulnerable.”
