Priyanka Chopra is a global star now. After cementing her name in Bollywood, the 38-year-old actor is now all set to become a force to reckon with in the global arena.

Priyanka Chopra is not just an actor but a singer, producer, entrepreneur, and now an Author, adding another feather to her cap as she recently introduced her autobiography called Unfinished.

Chopra’s autobiography unveiled different facets of her career that went unnoticed by the public eye earlier. One such revelation of the actor was being a victim of racism in the US post the release of her first album In My City. The actor confessed that she was called names post the launch of her first music single.

The actor in her autobiography revealed that she was very excited and pumped as her first single aired .” From where I sat, there was no better way for me and my music to be introduced to mainstream America than through an NFL weekly spot. #GameOn!” the actor added.

But the actor mentioned in her book that her bubble of excitement was quickly burst like a storm of raw racist tweets and emails flooded with hate replaced her bubble of excitement with a dark cloud. She also chose to mention a few of those comments like – What’s a brown terrorist doing promoting an all-American game? ‘Go back to your country and get gang-raped,” she wrote.

Recently, in an interview with Oprah Winfrey, the actor also talked about how she was racially bullied in school and confessed that it “broke her spirit”.

“High school is hard anyway. And to come of age, to understand your body as a woman, to be devalued for something I can’t change, I was profoundly affected by it,” she added. 

However, Chopra’s body of work displays the intensity of willpower that made her take India to the Global map with her high level of achievements and all of the criticism made her turn into the strong woman that she is today.
