Actress shared that in Bollywood narratives are set by the industry.
“In entertainment, the narratives are set by our industry. A lot of the narratives that my younger self went through were because there were ads on TV which I also participated in later.”
“When I first joined like 20 years ago, we didn’t talk about it. It was just expected that you are reed skinny, your pelvic bones show and it doesn’t matter how you get there. You should look a certain way and anything deviating from that is not pretty. People in fashion and people in films could actually ask you to be a certain body weight, they could actually tell you that you have to be able to get into this dress size and it was all normal,” Chopra detailed, adding that the situation is same even today but happens behind ‘closed doors’ now.
Remember that on the work front, Priyanka Chopra was last seen in the romantic comedy ‘Love Again’ opposite Sam Heughan, while her husband Nick Jonas also made a cameo in it. The James C. Strouse film was released theatrically on 5th May.
