“I was afraid”
The director recommended Chopra cosmetic surgery
In 2000 Priyanka Chopra was named the most beautiful woman in the world. But that doesn’t seem to prevent a director from pushing Miss World to have multiple beauty procedures. He is also supported by her manager at the time, as Chopra now reveals.
Her election to Miss World in 2000 was the beginning of a steep career for Priyanka Chopra. With the title in her pocket, the beautiful Indian broke off her aeronautical engineering studies and made her acting debut in the film “The Hero: Love Story of a Spy” (2003). In Bollywood, the 38-year-old has since become an indispensable part of the big screen. And it finally took off in Hollywood from 2015. She is also active as a brand ambassador and model.
But her titles and undeniably good looks did not prevent a director from recommending Chopra several cosmetic surgeries “to correct her proportions”. The actress tells that in an interview with “Metro”. The scene is also part of her book “Unfinished”.
In her autobiography, she writes: “He stared long and hard at me, assessed me, and then suggested that I have a breast operation, fix my jaw, and give my butt a little more cushioning.” For this he could also send her to a “great doctor in LA,” according to the director, according to Chopra. Her manager at the time also agreed to the matter. Shortly afterwards she broke up with him.
“Don’t be a pain in the ass”
Although she was already Miss World at the time, she did not have the courage to stand up for herself, the wife of ten years younger pop star Nick Jonas recalls according to “Metro”. “Because I’ve heard so often: ‘Don’t be a pain in the ass, you’re new to this industry, you don’t want to have a reputation for being difficult’,” explains the Bollywood actress. She now knows that the girl is often heard. “I learned from it over time, but then I was scared.”
In the interview, Chopra also makes it clear that such ratings from aspiring actresses are still normal. She wants to be committed to ensuring that women take control of their careers. Chopra has been advocating women’s rights for years and advocates gender equality. She has been an ambassador for Unicef since 2010.
