At SheThePeople’s Bombaywaali event in 2017, Chopra had spoken about her journey into films and shared that growing up in Noida and later moving to Bombay was a culture shock for her. She had recalled saying that Bombay was an entirely new experience for her and Bollywood in the 90s wasn’t what she expected. She had realised that there were not many interesting roles for women. “The kind of acting required so much makeup that if you took the makeup out, it could act by itself!” she had said.
