Priyanka Chopra: I Faced Racism, Was Called Brownie

Actress Priyanka Chopra made some candid confessions at India Today Mind Rocks Youth Summit .

She Said ” I went to high school for a few years in Boston, said she faced racial issues there, as some fellow students called her “browny” and pointed a finger at her for being an Indian.

In an inspiring speech at the India Today Mind Rocks Youth Summit, the 30-year-old actress took an exulting crowd of hundreds of students through her life’s journey from being “gawky kid” to a Bollywood star. “I was living in Bareily, from there I went straight to Boston and joined school there. I didn’t know how to fit in. Also, I faced some racial issues. Some girls called me ‘browny’ and I was typecast, pointed a finger at for being Indian,” Priyanka said.

She Added “My life was an epitome of imperfection. I’m not perfect like Aishwarya Rai, beautiful, stunning. I was a gawky kid, only thing I knew was to work hard and learn. I didn’t know how to act or win a beauty pageant. My career has been instinctive, but every situation taught me something.” The former Miss World also said that life is all about taking chances and it’s not worth living if there are no risks involved.

We Wish Priyanka Lots of Luck For Barfi !!
