HYDERABAD – Bollywood stunning actress Priyanka Chopra’s mother Dr Madhu Chopra made some revelations about Hindi film industry and revealed that her daughter lost 10 big films due to refusing to wear indecent clothes.
While attending the 20th International Children’s Film Festival in Hyderabad, Dr Chopra said, “Priyanka was about 17 years-old when she started her career and I used to accompany her everywhere till about three years ago. So a gentleman meets her and says: ‘Will your mother sit outside while I narrate the story to you?’ Priyanka told him, ‘If it is a story that my mother can’t hear then it is a story that I cannot do.’ She walked out of that project – a prestigious one.”
“Another time, 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. It was being helmed by a reputed director and he got upset. Priyanka 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.”
She also talked on the Hollywood experience of her daughter and said that Priyanka received respect there, adding, “the struggle is bigger but the outcome is sweeter too. This is my advice to every girl. Do not compromise and life will be sweeter for you.”
