Recently, Priyanka Chopra co-hosted The View with women anchors of the show and talked very much about her tv series Quantico, movies and Bollywood. Priyanka also spoke about people’s perception about looks. When the anchors talked about body shaming, PeeCee narrated an incident that left everyone little shocked.
Priyanka said, “Before I became an actor, I met a producer about the possibility of acting. I was a beauty pageant winner at that time, Miss World. And he said that everything was wrong about me. He said my nose was not proportionate, the shape of my body was not proportionate..”
That’s when Joy Behar, one of the show hosts interrupted her and said, “Is that your original nose?”. Everyone had a good laugh over it including PeeCee as well. After this PeeCee replied, “Yes, this is my original nose…”
PeeCee further continued, “There is such a false perception about what women should look like and what our bodies should look like. Especially when you are in the business, you put on a couple of pounds and people are like..body shaming you. It happens. Christmas happens to all of us. I have Holi, I have Diwali, and my body fluctuates and I am fine with it.”

While other women hosts were busy weighing in on Beyonce’s decision, Priyanka decided to go all, she said Beyonce is just an girl who wants to live her life like everyone else, there should be no fuss about it.
