Global icon Priyanka Chopra as she progressed in her personal and professional life, fearlessly spoke about several topics under the sun. One of these topics was her concern over her skin colour.

PeeCee made this revelation on Ladies First Podcast hosted by Laura Brown, she mentioned being messy sometimes is okay.
Making this revelation she said, “There were so many unrealistic beauty standards. Being ridiculously skinny was one, which I didn’t think about in my 20s, because I had a crazy metabolism at that point, as you do. But more than that, the equity on lighter skin in Asia, for sure. That’s something that I fell for. The fact that you have to be perfect, your face has to be perfect, your hair has to be perfect, you have to dress perfect, speak perfect, you have to have the right opinion on everything, you have to say the right thing.”

She added, “I think that part was the first (time) I kind of was like, ‘Forget it, I’m okay being messy sometimes, and it’s okay.’” 

The Sky Is Pink actress shared though it took time for her to accept it, she aims to continue with it even for her onscreen performances.  During the Podcast she shared that she aims to unzip’ the ‘glitz and glamour’ as it made her feel like living in a box.
