Priyanka Chopra opened up that she faced sexual harassment at a point of time.

Priyanka Chopra currently disclosed at the 10th Annual Women in the World Summit in New York that she also faced sexual harassment once. As a prominent supporter of the #MeToo movement, she said, “Sexual harassment had become a norm with women. Now, because of the support we are giving each other, people don't have the power to shut us down. And that's an incredibly powerful thing to see.”

India is not out of this global-trending movement, a large number of Indian women stood up for their rights and against the big names in the country who called out for sexual misconduct such as Sajid Khan, Vikas Bahl, Rajkumar Hirani, Anu Malik, and Alok Nath.

When being asked about her experience in this disturbing problem, Priyanka Chopra went straight to the point without flinching, “Everybody in this room has probably faced one because it had become a norm with women. We always had a voice. Just nobody heard us. Now if I have a story I don't feel I am alone anymore - and I am not ashamed of it.”

Adding to it, she showed her solid view on the current circumstance happening in the nation. “I think people have misunderstood the #MeToo movement if they restrict it only to the film industry. It's not only ki film industry mein aisi cheez hoti hai. Har job mein hoti hai. Jo mere saath hua hai, woh bohot pehle hua hai. Aisa nahi hai ki Dangal ke time hua hai ya uske baad. It happened when I was very young. I think people assuming that it's very current and wondering why I am not talking about it... that's a lot of expectation. Every woman in our country has dealt with it and I'm sure not everyone wants to talk about it publicly,”

Talking about Priyanka Chopra’s latest project, she is going to star along with, Rohit Saraf, Farhan Akhtar, and Zaira Wasim in the movie The Sky Is Pink, helmed by Shonali Bose.
