Global icon Priyanka Chopra Jonas’s memoir ‘Unfinished’ is finally out and the book is a roller coaster ride for sure!
From facing racism to certain unpleasant experiences in the industry, the actress has bared her soul and gotten raw and real with her readers.
According to a Zoom report, our Desi girl has recalled a rather disgusting incident of being objectified by a director in ‘Unfinished’. Priyanka was supposed to shoot for a seductive song where she would have had to slowly strip off her clothes one by one.
Priyanka was still game for the song and had asked the director whether she should wear extra layers so that she wouldn’t be ‘down to skin way too fast’. The director responded with a ‘sleazy’ remark which had her seeing red!
“The director suggested I speak to my stylist, so I called him and briefly explained the situation, then passed the phone to the director. Standing right in front of me, the director said: ‘Jo bhi ho, chaddiyan dikhni chahiyen. Nahi toh log picture kyon dekhne aayenge?’ (whatever happens, panties should be seen. Otherwise, why would people come to watch the movie?)” wrote Priyanka.
A livid Priyanka then QUIT the film, despite having shot for it for two days.
However, when the director found out she had left, he was outraged and landed up at the set of another one of her projects where she was shooting with Salman Khan. Salman had to intervene on Priyanka’s behalf to keep the scene from escalating.
Priyanka stood by her decision to drop the project – “I was ready to go full-out as a temptress in the number. The director’s words and tone, though, conveyed that he regarded me in a way that I found unacceptable,” she added.
