Priyanka Chopra is one of the richest and most successful actresses in the country. She is famous not just in India but across the world. Priyanka stole the spotlight when she became Miss World in 2000.

Meanwhile, the veteran actress went on to reveal why she left the Bollywood film industry. She exposed the dark side of the industry.
“I was being pushed into a corner in the industry (Bollywood). I had people not casting me, I had beef with people. I am not good at playing that game so I kind of was tired of the politics and I said I needed a break. This music thing gave me an opportunity to go into another part of the world, not crave for the movies I didn’t want to get but I would require to schmooze certain clubs and cliques of people,” she added.
“It would require groveling and I had worked a long time by then that I didn’t feel like I wanted to do it. So when this music thing came I was like ‘fu** it I am going to America,” she further added.
Meanwhile, filmmaker, Vivek Agnihotri heaped praise on Priyanka Chopra for sharing her side of the story.
“When big bullies bully, some kneel down, some surrender, some give up and leave, some take drugs, few have lost life too. Against this ‘impossible to defeat’ gang of bullies, very very few quit and make their own universe of success. Those are the real life stars..”
