Wait, WHAT? Priyanka Chopra reveals that she has been a victim of nepotism – ‘I have been kicked out of films because someone else was recommended to the producer,’ says Priyanka
“I have been kicked out of films because someone else was recommended to the producer”, says Priyanka
Kangana Ranaut’s remark on nepotism on season 5 of popular chat show Koffee With Karan and the debate it sparked off, has not been long forgotten. In an interview with Mid-Day, when Priyanka was asked what she felt about the same, she revealed that she had herself experienced it.
Priyanka is also one of the few actors who does not have any Godfather in the industry. She told the tabloid, “Every star has their individual journey. In mine, I have faced a lot. I have been kicked out of films because someone else was recommended to the producer. I cried and got over it.”
However, the Dostana actress does not have a bitter taste in her mouth from the experience. She added, “There is nothing wrong in being born into a family that has a legacy. Outsiders don’t have a foot-in-the-door access. Star kids have insurmountable pressure of living up to the family name… Eventually, those who are meant to be success stories become that, despite all hindrances.”
Currently, Priyanka is gearing up for her Hollywood debut, Baywatch which also stars Zac Efron and Dwayne Johnson. PeeCee will be playing the antagonist, Victoria Leeds, in the film.
