Mumbai: The last time that Priyanka Chopra came to India, there was excitement since the actress was reportedly going to announce her next Bollywood film.
She was reported to be roped in for Salman Khan starrer ‘Bharat’, but there has been no official announcement on that front as of yet.
Now PeeCee is coming back to India, but this time it isn’t for a movie. She is rather attending a UNICEF event in Delhi that will last for 16 hours.
But did you know that the actress, who is one of the global icons today, was rejected a Hollywood film because of her skin colour. The incident happened last year only.
Recollecting it, Priyanka told Instyle Magazine, “It happened last year. I was out for a movie, and somebody (from the studio) called one of my agents and said, ‘She’s the wrong, what word did they used? physicality.’ So in my defense as an actor, I’m like, ‘Do I need to be skinnier? Do I need to get in shape? Do I need to have abs?’ Like, what does ‘wrong physicality’ mean? And then my agent broke it down for me. Like, ‘I think, Priy, they meant that they wanted someone who’s not brown.’ That affected me.”
