Priyanka Chopra is one of the famous actress in Bollywood. Shuttling between countries, shooting for movies, TV shows, brand endorsements, being a goodwill ambassador for UNICEF and also handling her many social media accounts – Priyanka Chopra, without a doubt, is one of the most busiest women of the industry.
Talking in the same reference, Priyanka told media at an event, “Not just Bollywood, I think it has struck a chord with everyone. #MeToo got popular not just in America but all over the world. Women across the world in every field and not just the film industry face abuse from a powerful man be it in the emotional, verbal, se*ual, physical forms.”
The actress also added on saying, “I have been thrown out of a movie and replaced by the actor or director’s girlfriend. That’s an abuse of power and I could not do anything since I did not cater to the whims and fancies of powerful men. I catered to my friends and colleagues who respected me.”
“So I was treated in a certain way because I demanded it. My parents stood beside me and told me there’s nothing to be afraid of. But then there are women who have no support from family, friends, colleagues and peers. It gets difficult for them to do it all alone.”
