Priyanka Chopra, a former beauty queen, is defending beauty pageants at a time when their relevance is being reconsidered.
The Bollywood-Hollywood actor, who is now married to Jonas Brothers Nick Jonas, opened up about her thoughts on the now-controversial issue.
“It gave me a trampoline to my acting career. It gave me a sense of self, a sense of confidence to be able to stand in front of heads of state, to be able to speak in front of media from around the world, and actually know what I’m talking about.”
Chopra made her acting debut soon after winning the Miss World crown in 2000, with The Hero: Love Story of a Spy. She has appeared in popular Hindi films such as Krrish and Don, Kaminey , 7 Khoon Maaf, Barfi!, Mary Kom, and Bajirao Mastani.
