Actors Gossips: Priyanka Chopra reveals dad Ashok Chopra ground rule that saved her from terrible experiences in Bollywood


Priyanka revealed that her parents tried their best to stay her confidence intact as all of them tried to work out the business of entertainment.

Priyanka Chopra's recently released memoir 'Unfinished' has been winning the actress tons of praise from readers and social media users for her honest take and for baring it beat the tell-all book 'Unfinished' about her personal and business life. 

As we read through the memoir, we found a piece where Priyanka Chopra talks about how the Hindi movie industry was "mostly patriarchal" with "male producers usually calling the shots", and "things centered on the male actor". 

She mentioned how she would arrive on the sets of her films as scheduled only to seek out the male actor keeping the whole cast and crew expecting the whole day. 

She wrote, "I was on an enormous learning curve for the primary few years of my career, and one among the items that I used to be learning was that the Hindi movie industry was mostly patriarchal: male producers usually calling the shots, and things centered on the male actor. I saw this play out on the set of 1 of my early movies. I might arrive as scheduled at 9:00 AM a day. My male co-actor, however, wouldn't arrive until 4:30 within the afternoon, keeping the crew and everyone the opposite actors waiting. That was his pattern and it had been simply accepted by the director and therefore the producer."

She then goes on to mention how she confronted her mom, Madhu Chopra, and told her it wasn't fair which she doesn't want to try to to it. The response she got was, "You should be someone whose word is your bond. When you're finished with the commitments you've made and fulfilled the contracts you've signed, if you continue to do not like the way things are done, then don't sign any long contracts. 

.
And when she expressed how she felt to at least one of her co-actors the response she got changed her perception and led her to specialize in her commitment to the method and not anyone else's. 

Priyanka wrote within the memoir that her co-actor replied saying, "It doesn't matter if you're sitting and waiting. Your producer has paid you for your participation. it is your commitment and your work, albeit you play video games in your trailer while you're waiting. How they use some time is up to them."

This totally changed Priyanka's view towards her how she wanted to perceive waiting on the sets. 

Later, within the same chapter, Priyanka revealed that her parents tried their best to stay her confidence intact as all of them tried to work out the business of entertainment. She disclosed that before she hired outside management, her father Dr. Ashok Chopra had established one "unbreakable rule". "No nighttime meetings, nothing after sundown" 

Priyanka says within the memoir, "At that point, of course, I didn't know it. Whenever I questioned the rule, he'd stand firm: 'All meetings are going to be within the daytime when you will be within the presence of either Mom or me"

"Clearly my father was smart to fear the large bad world of entertainment, which his teenage daughter was so naively heading into," she adds. 

Priyanka also confesses in her memoir that it had been due to her father's protectiveness and therefore the one absolutely "non-negotiable line within the sand", she was spared from having a number of the terrible experiences that numerous children have once they are breaking into the show business. 

"While I did feel saddened and frustrated by the patriarchy and favoritism of the Bollywood system, I never felt physically threatened during my rise in it, and that I attribute that to a mixture of luck - bad things can do happen in broad daylight, all the time, with people accessible int he next room - and my father's wisdom," read an excerpt from Priyanka's memoir 'Unfinished'.
