Priyanka Chopra Reveals Father Ashok Chopra Had Become Paranoid After A Boy Had Jumped On Her Balcony; Recalls, ‘My Dad Was Like, Your Jeans Are Confiscated’
Priyanka Chopra recalled how much of a troublemaker she was when she had returned to India at the age of 16 from America
International sensation Priyanka Chopra has garnered a huge fan following worldwide. While she is all set to make her OTT debut with Russo brothers’ Citadel, she has been making the headlines for bold confessions. From talking about embracing motherhood late in her life with the right partner to talking about experiencing favouritism in Bollywood, she has unapologetically talked about her personal life experience. Now during a recent interview, she opened up about the time her father Dr Ashok Chopra laid down rules, when she returned to India from America at the age of 16.
In an interaction with The Howard Stern Show, Priyanka recalled the time her late father had become paranoid upon her return to India. Shedding light on the matter, she explained how she was sent to the US at the age of 12 with braids. In order to be cool, she had her hair blown out. In her words she came back with “all of these American hormones and the food.” She returned to India “a little bit more woman” than her father had anticipated. He explained how she lived her life in a small town in India, like she had back in America, which had boys following her home. ALSO READ: OMG!

The 40-year-old actress went on to recall a terrifying experience which made her father, who passed away after battling cancer in 2013, lay down strict rules. She revealed how once a boy from her high school had jumped on her balcony at night. Her father had gone on to put bars on her windows, confiscated her jeans and told her to only wear Indian suits. He had also appointed her a driver who would drive her everywhere. She went on to wonder how she got away with doing everything she did back in the day.

Quoted by ABP News, she said, “I thought I was invincible. I think about it now. How did I get away with this s*** that I did? But it was this invincible thing of, 'I can get away with anything'. But that day when somebody was outside my bedroom. He was outside my balcony and I saw him and I screamed and went to my dad. My dad came, he jumped and he went away. The next day my dad was like, 'You need rules'. I was so arrogant and vain in those two years of my life. Especially when I came back to India.”

Apart from this, she has Love Again and Farhan Akhtar's Jee Le Zaraa, co-starring Katrina Kaif and Alia Bhatt in the pipeline.
