Priyanka Chopra Speaks About Being ‘Bullied’ In Bollywood
Recently, Priyanka Chopra, for the first time, opened up about her reasons for leaving Bollywood and building a career in Hollywood. In a conversation with Dax Shepherd on his podcast Armchair Expert, Priyanka Chopra finally spoke up about the reason behind leaving India. During the interview, she said, “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.”
Priyanka further shared how during the shooting of her film “Saat Khoon Maaf”, she was discovered by Anjula Acharia of Desi Hits, who saw her in a music video. Anjula then contacted her to ask if she would like to consider a music career in the United States.
The actress further added, “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. 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.”
After Priyanka’s revelation of being cornered by Bollywood industry, many celebrities came forward to support her and applaud her courage to stand against the Bollywood bullies.
While applauding Priyanka, Kangana Raunat wrote on twitter, “This is what @priyankachopra has to say about bollywood, people ganged up on her, bullied her and chased her out of film industry” a self made woman was made to leave India. Everyone knows Karan Johar had banned her (1/2) (sic).”
She further wrote in another tweet, “Media wrote extensively about her fall out with Karan Johar because of her friendship with SRK and movie mafia Cruella who is always looking for vulnerable outsiders saw a perfect punching bag in PC and went all out in harassing her to a point where she had to leave India.”
“This obnoxious, jealous, mean and toxic person should be held accountable for ruining the culture and environment of film industry which was never hostile to outsiders in the days of AB or SRK. His gang and mafia PR should be raided and held accountable for harassing outsiders,” she added.
After Kangana Ranaut, Apurva Asrani has also lauded Priyanka for her massive win as she didn’t end up like late actors Parveen Babi and Sushant Singh Rajput.
The editor-filmmaker wrote on Twitter, “Finally Priyanka Chopra reveals what everyone knew, but said not a word. Not the liberals, not the feminists. They hail those that ostracized her, celebrate the kings that tried to destroy her. It is a massive win that she didn’t end up like Parveen Babi or Sushant Singh Rajput.”

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.”
