The revelations this week of the Indian actress Priyanka Chopra about the supposed veto that forced her to leave Bollywood, the powerful center of Indian cinema caused a stir among the celebrities of the Asian country with accusations about the norms and vices that govern the industry.
In a conversation with American actors Dax Shepard and Monica Padman on her Armchair Expert podcast, Chopra said on Monday that she decided to seek her luck in Hollywood after showbiz conflicts in India.
“I was being pushed into a corner in the (Bollywood) industry. There were people who didn’t choose me, I had problems with people, I’m not good at playing that game.”he pointed.
The Quantico star’s confessions were followed by reactions from fellow Indian actress Kangana Ranaut about Chopra’s treatment.
“This is what Priyanka Chopra has to say about Bollywood, people attacked her, harassed her and forced her out of the film industry: a self-made woman forced to leave India”he said in a series of messages on Twitter.
According to Ranaut, Chopra’s fall was caused by disagreements with the director and screenwriter Karan Johar, and the actress’s friendship with the protagonist of “My name is Khan”, Shahrukh Khan.
the indian manager “he went out of his way to harass her to the point where she had to leave India”Ranaut said he accused Johar of being a “hateful, jealous, petty and toxic” person.
Likewise, the representative of Nick Jonas’s wife, Anjula Acharia, who assured in an interview with Forbes in 2021 that Hindi film actors and directors tried to convince her not to work with Chopra, put those statements back on the surface today.
Priyanka Chopra “It’s undeniable and we proved everyone wrong. I knew she would be a global star the first time I saw her on TV!”Acharia said on Twitter.
Chopra’s controversial revelations about her skin color also caused a stir in the Indian media, after the actress claimed that her skin tone was lightened in some of the films in which she starred.
Chopra starred in a commercial promoting a whitening cream more than a decade ago in which the actress played a girl ignored by her surroundings because of the color of her skin, until she started using the whitening lotion and her most desired dreams came true.
