We pray to women but at the same time, we prey on them – Priyanka Chopra on feminism


Priyanka Chopra is the definition of an independent and strong woman. She’s not only conquered Bollywood but is slowly marking her territory internationally too.

In a recent interview with a popular US-based trend site, Priyanka gave her perspectives on feminism and by what method the subject is addressed in India. She said, “For eons, girls have been told how to be or think or dress. I come from part of the world where this argument is not so cool, particularly because we’re a state that’s goddesses. We pray to girls. But at exactly the same time, we prey on them.”

“Feminism needs men to understand that we don’t want to berate you or kill you or hate you,” she said. “We just need you to stand by us.”

 She is considered as one of the most beautiful actresses to which PeeCee responded, “Beauty has nothing to do with me.”Beauty has nothing to do with me,” she said. “I was born with it. But I don’t want to be known by the fact that I’m beautiful. I want to be known for the fact that I’m an achiever. Not even an actor. I don’t want a label. I don’t want a box. I want a legacy.”

Now that’s one badass role model!
