Priyanka Chopra's Statement

Priyanka revealed that she had few options to continue her acting career in India in a recent Armchair Expert with Dax Shepherd US podcast interview. People refused to hire her and she decided to move to the US. The actress revealed, "I was being pushed into a corner in the industry. I had people not casting me, I had beef with people, and I am not good at playing that game so I kind of was tired of the politics and I said I needed a break. This music thing gave me an opportunity to go into another part of the world, not crave the movies I didn't want to get but I would require to schmooze certain clubs and cliques of people. It would require grovelling and I had worked a long time by then that I didn't feel like I wanted to do it."
