Priyanka Chopra is ruling the world with her hard work and passion. She is a famous international celebrity now and not just that she is managing both her Hollywood and Bollywood projects extremely well. Recently in an interview to NDTV, Priyanka talked about a ridiculous thing in one of her contracts related to pregnancy.
She said, ''I was signing a contract for a big corporation a couple of years ago, and a clause there said that they (the corporation) could terminate it (the contract) if I got pregnant. I was livid. How could you tell me I could not get pregnant. Not sick.. not overweight.. just pregnant! Their logic was that I would not be able to deliver the project on time. I was fine with working when I am pregnant. We had a big argument over it.
