Priyanka Chopra on super-sizing ambition
Priyanka Chopra Jonas is a global superstar and one of India’s most famous women, but that doesn’t mean she’s slowing down any time soon. The unapologetically ambitious actress, philanthropist, and producer has found plenty of crossover success in America, including on ABC’s Quantico, where she became the first South Asian woman to lead a network TV drama (her dreamy wedding last year to Nick Jonas didn’t hurt much either). Nevertheless, Chopra is down-to-earth, deeply driven, and a staunch advocate for the urgency around diversity and representation on screen. Priyanka joins us on the latest installment of the UnStyled podcast to talk about celebrating life, finding love, and why she returned to her Bollywood roots with the newly released Hindi-language film, The Sky Is Pink.
