After the success of the Netflix movie “White Tiger” starring Large Kumar Lao and Adder Shugo Love, Priyanka Chopra Jonas is preparing for the release of her next memoir, “Unfinished.”
Recently, while promoting her book, the actor became open about supporting whitening cream in India. Priyanka stopped participating in such campaigns after moving to Hollywood. In Mary Claire’s profile, Priyanka elaborated on the deep sins she has about promoting whitening cream early on. This is a topic she will explore in her next memoir, “Unfinished.”
Priyanka said, “Skin lightening was very normal in South Asia. It’s a very big industry, so everyone was doing it. In fact, doing that is still a check. But when you’re a female actor, it’s terrible. And it was terrible for me for the little girl who had talcum powder cream on my face because I believed that black skin wasn’t clean.”
She had previously talked in a 2015 interview with a journalist about deciding not to recommend such a product. She said, “I quit because I was really sick. All my cousins found it dim because Gora Chitta (Fair) dad was dim. For fun, the Punjabi family called me ‘Curly, Curly, Curly.’ Would call it. At the age of 13, I wanted to add fairness cream and change my complexion.”
For those who don’t know, “Unfinished” will be released on February 9th. The book is about Priyanka’s childhood journey, where she faced racism during her teens in the United States and won Miss India and Miss World, and she Bollywood and Hollywood.
