Priyanka Chopra’s Quantico and The Jungle Book have one thing in common
Let PC explain!
The Quantico actress recently appeared as a guest co-host on The View and revealed her brush with body shaming early on in her career. "Before I became an actor, I met a producer about the possibility of acting. I was a beauty pageant winner at that time, Miss World. And he said that everything was wrong about me. He said my nose was not proportionate, the shape of my body was not proportionate." Priyanka went on to criticize the standards by which women across the world are judged. "There is such a false perception about what women should look like and what our bodies should look like. Especially when you are in the (film) business, you put on a couple of pounds and people are like..body shaming you. It happens. Christmas happens to all of us. I am an Indian. I have Holi, I have Diwali, I have hundred holidays and my body fluctuates and you know what... I am fine with it."
Priyanka Chopra’s star is shining bright. The Quantico star is making more headlines than she can count. But when she isn’t doing press for her own projects, she championing another (well, sort of Indian) export: The Jungle Book, which stars 10-year-old Indian-American actor Neel Sethi as Mowgli. In fact, Chopra has lent her voice to Kaa (the python) in the official Hindi version of the film; in Jon Favreau’s original English dub it’s voiced by Scarlett Johansson. But let’s go back to what PC has to say:
