Priyanka Chopra On Why People Wanted To Jeopardise Her Career, Adds 'Shiv Ji Will Be Upset With Me'

Global icon, Priyanka Chopra is cited as an inspiration for many who dared to leave her home and go outside India to make a successful career. She has already proven her mettle in acting and needs no introduction. However, recently, when she came to India to launch her hair care brand, she revealed the struggles and backlashes she faced during her career's initial days. Not only that, she has also reacted to rumours which claimed that she is a Satanic worshipper and many more.

Coming back to her personal life, Priyanka Chopra knows how to maintain her work-life balance. For instance, when she returned to LA, she gave a sneak peek into how she reunited with her hubby, Nick Jonas and their daughter, Malti Marie Chopra Jonas. Taking to her IG handle on November 10, 2022, Priyanka shared a priceless family portrait. In the picture, the doting mommy was seen lying on the floor at her LA home while holding her baby girl close to her. In addition, her hubby was seen adorably staring at the mother-daughter duo.

During her India visit, Priyanka got indulged in a candid conversation with Ranveer Ahluwalia and appeared on his podcast. During the interview, the gorgeous actress was asked about the hardships in her career and life so far. To this, Priyanka revealed that there were people who wanted to jeopardise her career as she was doing well at that time. However, Priyanka elaborated on how she overcame it without revealing the names. She said:

“I have had people wanting to jeopardise my career, take away from my work, make sure I wasn’t cast just because I was doing well in what I was doing. But that’s not what stops me. I don’t sit and wait and harp on, maybe I will cry one night when an opportunity was taken away from me, but I don’t sit in the s**t. You have to shut off the noise. Focus on the one person who believes in you. Focus on light, a little bit of inspiration that you might see and that’s the hardest thing to do because you are bogged down by baggage and shackles of people holding you down.”

Further, in the same conversation, Ranveer asked the gorgeousness of the rumours which claimed Priyanka used to worship Satan to achieve prosperity in her career. To this, Priyanka was quick to refute all such rumours, and laughingly she revealed how it was a mere coincidence which came her way and people started loving her movies. She added:

"Horrible! Shiv ji will be very upset with me. I didn't understand the opportunity it gave me. Suddenly, people knew me and wanted to know me. Movies were coming my way, I didn’t know anything about how do you sign a movie."
