Priyanka, who is vocal about her ideas on issues pertaining to women's health, says being an entertainer gives her a platform to spread awareness about social causes.
Priyanka Chopra is a veteran Actress.
Have a Good Experience.
Priyanka Chopra says women have the superpower to balance career with family and it is high time men understood that their aspirations are equally important.
The 35-year-old actor, who entered the film industry soon after winning the Miss World title at the age of 18, credits her parents, especially her father, for understanding her dreams and helping her achieve them.
1. "I came from a family where everyone questioned my decision to become an actor.
There was a big debate in my house. But my parents, especially my father said, 'I am standing by her in whatever she wants to do.
2. I will make sure nothing wrong happens to her.' He kept his promise. He was with me always till I was 23. He used to be my manager. I had the support of my father," Priyanka told in an interview.
3. "The men in the world need to understand that as soon as you empower a woman, as soon as you give her the opportunity to be her best, she can handle both family and career.
I feel boys can't tackle both. Look at the medals at Commonwealth Games, most of
them have been won by women because they had this opportunity," she says.
4. The actor believes society needs to be more open towards the idea of women being ambitious. People have still not warmed up to the idea of a career-oriented woman.
