Priyanka Chopra: Had tumultuous times back then, but today I feel confident to speak about it
Priyanka is starring alongside Richard Madden in the sci-fi spy series Citadel
Priyanka Chopra Jonas, who recently spoke at a podcast about being “cornered” in Bollywood and having a “beef with some people”, explained why she decided to speak now about this difficult time in her life.
While speaking to Dax Shepherd on his podcast Armchair Expert, Priyanka said, “I was being pushed into a corner in the industry (Bollywood). I had people not casting me. I had a beef with people. I am not good at playing that game, so I kind of was tired of the politics, and I said ‘I need a break.’”
Recently speaking at a press conference for her upcoming sci-fi spy thriller series Citadel, Priyanka said, “First, I spoke during the podcast about my journey across my childhood, teenage years, the initial phase of my career and eventually the incident that changed a few things for me."
She added: "I have had tumultuous times back then, but today, I feel confident to speak about it in the hope that people at large would take notice of it, empathise (with me) and understand where I'm coming from. I felt it was a safe space for me to open up about the rocky patch in my professional journey."
Priyanka is starring alongside Richard Madden in the 6-episode series Citadel. The show also features Stanley Tucci and Lesley Manville in pivotal roles. The series, created by Russo Brothers and showrunner David Weil, will premiere exclusively on Prime Video starting April 28 with two episodes and then one episode rolling out weekly through May 26.
