Take a look at the post here:
A few weeks earlier, Priyanka Chopra’s mother Madhu Chopra opened up about her daughter’s rise to superstardom. From her Miss World win to headlining Hollywood projects, Madhu Chopra in interaction with Josh Talks Aasha said that the journey was not an easy one. She added that given their family had no prior connection to the entertainment industry, Priyanka Chopra’s initial years in the industry were fraught with challenges.
Speaking about Priyanka Chopra’s early years in the industry, she said, “Both, she (Priyanka) and I were new to the film industry and the beauty industry. So, it was like one blind man leading another blind man. I had studied law and knew finance. So, I used to oversee her legal matters even though she had good lawyers. I also overlooked her finances because I had knowledge. I had to be with her everywhere, be it narrations or meetings.”
Madhu Chopra’s revelations came days after Priyanka Chopra’s candid confessions about being “cornered” in Bollywood. Speaking to Dax Shepard on the podcast Armchair Expert, Priyanka Chopra said that she was sharing the reason behind her deciding to work in the US for the very first time. During the course of the podcast, Dax Shepard asked: “So how do you decide you want to even put yourself through that? Why’d you decide to put yourself through that and then what was it?” To this, Priyanka said, “I’ve never said this so I’m going to say it because you’ll make me feel safe.”
On the work front, Priyanka Chopra will be seen next in Jee Le Zaraa.
