SHOCKING! Priyanka Chopra was asked to show her panties in a song; shares how Salman Khan stood up for her
Global star actress Priyanka Chopra shares a dramatic incident from her career in her recently revealed memoir ‘Unfinished’. She is currently in news with so many unknown truths of the industry which she has written in her book. The actor has been promoting the book and mentioning how it contains all the stories and incidents that are not known to her fans yet.
In one of the chapters, Priyanka has talked about being a woman in the film industry who is misogynist from the word goes. In one of the chapters the Dostana actress has talked about the time when a director wanted her to show ‘panties’ in a film, she says, “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?” which translates as “whatever happens, panties should be seen. Otherwise, why would people come to watch the movie?” After this incident PC left the film for obvious reason, but she had already shot for the film.
So the producer of the film was after her. This is when superstar Salman Khan came to her rescue. She writes, “My co-star Salman Khan, who was and is a huge star in India, understood the situation immediately and intervened on my behalf…when the producer arrived, he had a conversation with him that defused the situation. I’m not sure exactly what he said but the producer was in a much calmer state when he spoke to me.” Though PC has never shared the real reasons for leaving the film.

She writes in the book, “I was a newcomer in a patriarchal industry and I’d learned that it was better not to poke the bear. Keep your head down and keep smiling was the rule for the girls, and I was already pushing the boundaries. So rather than explaining what had happened, I told him I’d misunderstood the character and wasn’t comfortable playing her, and that I’d send a cheque to reimburse them for the two days they’d have to reshoot with someone else.”
On the work front, PC was last featured in the Netflix film The White Tiger. Then she also had a new Hollywood release titled We Can Be Heroes. She is currently in London where she was shooting for her new film Text For You but her stay got extended as the UK is currently under the third lockdown due to the excessive covid cases.
