Actress Priyanka Chopra is on cloud nine as her book Unfinished, has written about her life in the film industry, the patriarchy, favouritism and all that exist in Bollywood.
The actress wrote about her journey from a small town India to Hollywood, the path she chose, the hurdles she faced and how she succeeded against all the odds.
“The director suggested I speak to my stylist, so I called him and briefly explained the situation, then passed the phone to the director. Standing right in front of me, the director said: "Jo bhi ho, chaddiyan dikhni chahiyen. Nahi toh log picture kyon dekhne aayenge?" which translates as "whatever happens, panties should be seen. Otherwise, why would people come to watch the movie?" wrote Priyanka.
She decided to quit the film and that’s when the director visited her on the sets of her another film. This issue cooled down only after Salman Khan had interfered.
Also, she wrote, “ After a few minutes of small talk, the director/producer told me to stand up and twirl for him. I did. He stared at me long and hard, assessing me, and then suggested that I get a boob job, fix my jaw, and add a little more cushioning to my butt. If I wanted to be an actress, he said, I’d need to have my proportions ‘fixed’, and he knew a great doctor in LA he could send me to. My then-manager voiced his agreement with the assessment.”
