Priyanka Chopra has had a long career both in and outside Bollywood. This means that while she has had many ups in her career there are also the times when she had to suffer through some things that impacted both her life and career. In her recently published memoir, Priyanka Chopra has addressed the botched nose surgery that she underwent in the early 2000s. Priyanka recalled the time in her book and wrote about the entire ordeal.
“ While shaving off the polyp, the doctor also accidentally shaved the bridge of my nose and the bridge collapsed. When it was time to remove the bandages and the condition of my nose was revealed, Mom and I were horrified. My original nose was gone. My face looked completely different. I wasn't me anymore." Priyanka continued, "I felt devastated and hopeless. Every time I looked in the mirror, a stranger looked back at me, and I didn’t think my sense of self or my self-esteem would ever recover from the blow,” she added.
Priyanka also said that she realised she must draw a line as an entertainment star. She writes, “I decided that there was a line I was going to draw in my life. I am an entertainer. That’s what I’ve signed on to do, and that’s what I love doing. I will say my lines, dance my dance, hit my mark. I’ll do my best to make you laugh, and I’ll do my best to make you cry, but just because I’m a public person doesn’t mean everything about my life has to be public knowledge. I get to choose what I share and when I share it."
