Priyanka Chopra Jonas Recalls Dehumanizing Incident

Priyanka Chopra Jonas

Priyanka Chopra Jonas, who is now starring in Citadel on Amazon Prime Video, recently disclosed that she compensated a production for the costs they had expended on her after she backed out of shooting the movie just two days in. Her marriage to Nick, their similar work ethic, difficulties in the American media sector, and her production firm’s Amazon projects—which are presently on pause because of the ongoing writer’s strike—were all topics of discussion. In the course of the interview, Chopra Jonas discussed an incident from her early days in Bollywood that she also discussed in her memoir, Unfinished. 

Priyanka Chopra Jonas Felt Objectified

Priyanka Chopra Jonas took on the role of an undercover character in this particular production who had to entice a man while progressively taking off his clothes. Chopra Jonas requested to cover herself for the sequence, but the director insisted on showing only her underpants, claiming that it would draw more viewers.

I’m undercover, I’m wooing the man – clearly, that’s what females do when they’re undercover, she remarked, according to The Hollywood Reporter. But you have to remove one piece of clothes [at a time] as I seduce the guy. I want extra clothing. No, I need to see her in her underpants, said the director. 

Priyanka Chopra Jonas stated that it “was such a dehumanizing moment,” even though the director remarked in front of her stylist rather than to her directly. The actress felt obligated to pay back the production for the costs they had expended on her due to her decision to abandon the movie after only two days of work. She reportedly performed this exceptional action on her father’s advice, according to the interview.  

After the superstar couple returned to the Met Gala carpet, Priyanka and her husband Nick Jonas were recently featured in the headlines. In case you didn’t know, their love began to develop during the Met Gala. They donned matching black-and-white outfits.
