PeeCee On #MeToo
"We always had a voice. Just nobody heard us. Now because of the support we are giving each other, nobody can shut us down. And that's an incredibly powerful thing to see. Now if I have a story I don't feel I am alone anymore - and I am not ashamed of it."
PeeCee Has Gone Through The Same
When PeeCee was categorically asked if she has ever faced it, she said, "Everybody in this room has probably faced one because it had become a norm with women."
Priyanka Also Spoke About South Asian Actors Being Stereotyped
"I am Indian. I don't need my parts to justify why I can be an actor. And it would take me doing that to become mainstream enough now to actually play parts where I am my own ethnicity. And I will not be considered as a niche actor, or an actor who can only do that."
Priyanka's Work Front
On the professional front, Priyanka Chopra will be next seen in The Sky Is Pink. The film also casts Farhan Akhtar and Zaira Wasim in the lead roles.
