Did Priyanka Chopra ever face sexual harassment? Here's what she said

New Delhi:

Priyanka Chopra has the deadly combination of beauty with brains and this reflects on the statements she makes, the causes she supports and the sides she takes.

Speaking to Tina Brown at the Women in World Summit 2019 in New York, the actress opened about the #MeToo movement.
"Sexual harassment had become a norm with women," she then added, "Now, because of the support we are giving each other, people don't have the power to shut us down."

While talking about the difference the #MeToo movement has made, Quantico star said that it is the strength in numbers that women are now enjoying. She mentioned that women always had a voice, but now because of the support women are giving each other, nobody can shut them down.

"Now if I have a story I don't feel I'm alone anymore - and I'm not ashamed of it," she said.

Tina asked the actress if she ever faced sexual harassment, she raised her hand saying everybody in this room has probably faced one. 

The 'Quantico' actress who has established herself as one of the most popular Indians in Hollywood, also opened up about her career transition. "A lot of actors that I speak to don't have ambitions to move out of the industry. Bollywood is the biggest, if not the first industry to make films and the demographic is so large, they don't want to leave that," she said.

The actress added that like many before her, she was also offered "ethnically ambiguous parts" in Hollywood. "It took me all those ethnically ambiguous parts to be where I am today. I did not want to do stereotype roles because then all you will see is what I already know I can do. I am Indian, I can do that," Priyanka said. 

The actress will be next seen in The Sky is Pink opposite Farhan Akhtar.
