Racist Bullying Affected Priyanka Chopra Adversely, Read How She Felt
‘White Tiger’ producer and actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas, said the racist bullying she faced as a teenager during high-school in the United States affected her adversely. Priyanka had moved to the US at the age of 13 and studied in Massachusetts, Iowa, and New York City.
In a new interview with Marie Claire, Priyanka said, “In high school, I feel like the kids who were after me didn’t even understand why. I think it’s that they decided that they were more powerful than someone else—me—and when you pick on someone, it’s because you’re insecure. Bullying happens to kids and adults. It happens with positions of power, and we’ve all seen that abused in multiple ways.”
“It affected me adversely. It affected my confidence; it affected who I wanted to be. I felt exposed, when your skin is raw,” she added.
Priyanka recently completed the shooting schedule of her new film ‘Text For You’ in London. She will also star in ‘Citadel’, an Amazon spy series and ‘Matrix 4’, which is expected to release later this year.
