Madhu Chopra Shares How Priyanka Chopra Suffered From Childhood PTSD About Her Dark Complexion

Priyanka Chopra is a global icon who has set an inspirational standard for herself.

Priyanka Chopra’s mom, Madhu Chopra shares how the former suffered from PTSD in childhood

For the unversed, despite having bagged such enormous achievements in her professional life, Priyanka has often been troubled by the skin tone bias, especially in Bollywood. A number of times in the past, the actress has voiced her own experiences, where she faced injustice at work due to her wheatish skin tone. And now, in a recent interaction with Bollywood Hungama, Priyanka’s mother, Madhu Chopra, opened up about the former’s struggles with skin complexion and revealed how she used to suffer from PTSD trauma in her childhood for the same. She mentioned:

“I think she might have had childhood PTSD trauma because when she was very young, everyone in the Chopra family was ‘gora-chitta’ (fair) except her father. And she went on her father and she was not at all that bad, she was very good looking, she had a ‘gehu’ (wheatish) complexion. But there were few people who taunted her about her complexion and maybe that remained in her head. Apart from that she was a stunner.”
