New Delhi: Priyanka Chopra, a global star today, reflected upon her extensive journey in Bollywood as well Hollywood during an interaction with Dax Shepard on the podcast Armchair Expert. The actress, before navigating to Hollywood, was an equally big star back home and during the podcast, she revealed that she decided to move to the US because she had “beef with people.” Without taking names, Priyanka Chopra mentioned that she was “pushed into a corner.” She said during the podcast: “I was being pushed into a corner in the industry (Bollywood). I had people not casting me, I had beef with people, I am not good at playing that game so I kind of was tired of the politics and I said I needed a break.” Soon after the podcast aired, Priyanka Chopra fans united and gave her the loudest cheer on social media. The hashtag #Unifinished, which also happens to be the title of the actress’ memoir, found its way to the many tweets posted in support of Priyanka Chopra.
