Priyanka Chopra 'rejected' director's demand, then 'lost' 10 films

Priyanka Chopra's mother talks about how her daughter lost projects because of saying no to harassment

Priyanka Chopra is now in NY, busy with the third season of Quantico and is also looking forward to the release of her next Hollywood movies Isn't It Romantic? and A Kid Like Jake. She, without a doubt, is the most successful Indian name representing us in the entertainment world.

Priyanka Chopra, who recently spoke about the "many Harvey Weinsteins" everywhere, have been going about her own rules from her the very beginning of her journey in the film industry. So a gentleman meets her and says: 'Will your mother sit outside while I narrate the story to you?' Priyanka told him, 'If it is a story that my mother can't hear then it is a story that I cannot do'.

"Talking about Priyanka tackling harassment from her initial days in the ruthless industry that Bollywood is, Ms Chopra told Deccan Chronicle: ".a designer told her that the director's brief was to dress her in itsy-bitsy clothes.

Priyanka Chopra keeps making us proud again and again. But she didn't care.

As per a report published in Deccan Chronicle, Priyanka has rejected nearly 10 big films due to a very particular reason.

Priyanka Chopra set some serious friendship goals this weekend at the David Webb x Stop Cancer charity event in Beverly Hills, LA, as she joined Modern Family actor Sofia Vergara. That is what I say to everyone. "Your life is more valuable", she added.

As cliched as it may sound, my mother is my #GirlHero. The easiest thing to take away from a woman is her work. She's also an fantastic mother, daughter, sister, wife, business partner...

It is reported that the project was a grand one, however, Priyanka walked out of it.

. And that's why she's my #GirlHero... it's so important to inculcate that sense of confidence in the girls around you and hopefully that's what we do this International Day of the Girl Child.

When Priyanka was trolled for wearing a showing her legs in a short dress at a meeting with India PM Narendra Modi, the actress posted a picture of herself and her mum in short skirts with the caption "it's in the gene".

There are may women who are on the top of their game, battling to do their best everyday, and Priyanka Chopra seems to be another one of those fierce females, with her mother right beside her. Priyanka Chopra might have had the option to walk out of big productions and films, but there are a lot of women who do not have that option.
