Priyanka Chopra was shining in a grey Ralph Lauren ensemble as she attended the Forbes Women’s Summit in New York recently and proved to be an inspiration with her thoughts on feminism and being an independent woman.
The star, who recently attended close friend Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s royal wedding, spoke about her love for fairy-tales but raised a very valid question. “All the fairy-tales we’ve always read, end when the princess gets married. Why is there no story beyond that? That’s the end of her life! After she gets married, what happens?” Chopra asked.
She further spoke about her parents’ unwavering support and influence and revealed the advice her dad had given to her saying, “Whatever you are and whatever you want to be, that is the best version of you. Why would you ever want to fit into a glass slipper that someone has made for you… you break the glass ceiling.”
“I’ve always achieved everything I’ve had on my own. I did not have advisers & I started when I was 17… I was never entitled…Entitlement, even now, is not something I ever expect,” Chopra proudly proclaimed and added, “Whatever I decide to be, will be my choice. No one is the decision maker in my life.”
Chopra will soon be heading to India to commence shooting for Ali Abbas Zafar’s ‘Bharat,’ which also stars Salman Khan, Tabu, Disha Patani and Sunil Grover, reports Pinkvilla. ‘Bharat’ is slated for an Eid 2019 release.
