Beautiful Actress Priyanka Chopra has become hot Hollywood property after landing Miss India and Miss World titles and starring in a series of Bollywood hits, but her life hasn’t always been all fun and smiles.
Growing up in America, Priyanka was picked on because she looked different and things got so bad for the actress she eventually returned to India to complete her studies.
“One girl used to call me Brownie and tell me to go back to my own country,” she tells InStyle. “At lunch I’d get a bag of chips from the vending machine and eat it in the storage room so I wouldn’t have to see her.
“I told my dad about how the teasing affected my self-esteem, and he asked why I wanted to fit in so badly. I responded, ‘Because that’s what everyone does’. He said that we’re unique only because of our flaws. I now live by those words.”
