Priyanka Chopra was yelled at by directors in early days of career

Now a superstar in both Bollywood and Hollywood, Priyanka Chopra, who recently got married to Nick Jonas, revealed how she struggled through time to reach here.

In her recent interview with Vogue India for their September issue, Priyanka shared what kind of unpleasant behaviour and yelling by the directors she had gone through when she started her career.

“I didn’t know anything or anyone. I was yelled at by directors, I was thrown into movies, I was thrown out of movies,” she said.

But, like every parent, who motivates their kid, it was late Dr Ashok Chopra (her father), who constantly encouraged her to go pass that phase. “‘The more you talk, the less you will listen and the less you will learn’…I taught myself confidence. I learnt it’s what you do after failure that makes you a success,” she added.

After winning the Miss World crown in 2000, Priyanka made her acting debut with ‘Andaaz’ opposite Akshay Kumar and with Lara Dutta.

Earlier, the actor’s biography ‘Priyanka Chopra: A Dark Horse’ by Bharathi S Pradhan, has even thrown some light on the trouble she had to face with her first few projects after a nose job went wrong.
