In February, Priyanka Chopra Jonas published her memoir Unfinished. The book traced the actress’ journey from the beginning, and talks about the ups and downs in her life. She has been busy promoting her memoir, and in a recent interview, Priyanka talked about the negativity that she gets from her own community, and that she feels they are picking on her for no reason.
Priyanka Chopra talked about the lack of inclusivity in Hollywood and how she and a very few other brown people in the entertainment industry are trying to push for inclusivity. While speaking to BBC, she further said, “I do notice a sense of protectiveness from a lot of people but also a sense of cynicism from a lot of people and a sense of negativity from a lot of people that have known me for a really long time. Picking on me for no reason.”
She said that she had talked to Mindy Kaling a few months ago, and they were discussing why they get so much negativity from their own community. “Very few brown people are in the entertainment business in Hollywood, right? You can count us on your fingers. What our attempt is… We are literally, with our own two hands, trying to create more opportunity for people like us. So, why is there so much negativity for us?” said Priyanka.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Priyanka Chopra was last seen in The White Tiger, which also starred Rajkummar Rao, and Adarsh Gourav. She will be seen in international projects such as Text For You, The Matrix 4, Amazon series Citadel, and others next.
