Tuesday, February 23, 2021 • Tamil Comments

Actress/Producer Priyanka Chopra Jonas has impressed audience across the world with her recently released memoir titled 'Unfinished.' While a number of funny anecdotes are featured in the memoir which talks about Priyanka's life and career, it also contains a few startling revelations.

Priyanka Chopra has opened up about the racist attacks she faced in the United States, where she currently resides with her husband Nick Jonas, after making her singing debut with 'In My City', alongside Pitbull. In 'Unfinished,' the actress has talked about all the hateful and racist messages that came her way following the release of the song. "I remember the thrill of turning on the television the first night it aired and seeing myself introducing the game in a prerecorded announcement, and then watching the upbeat 'In My City' promo video along with the millions of others who were tuned in. From where I sat, there was no better way for me and my music to be introduced to mainstream America than through an NFL weekly spot. #GameOn!" Priyanka wrote.

"My bubble was quickly burst. The excitement of having my first song debut in the United States on such a huge platform was completely destroyed by a storm of explicitly racist hate mail and tweets, including – among many, many examples to choose from – 'What's a brown terrorist doing promoting an all-Americal game?' and 'Go back to the Middle East and put your burka on' and-years later it's still hard to write this – 'Go back to your country and get gang-raped,'" she added. Released by Penguin Random House on 9 February 2021, 'Unfinished' chronicles important moments in Priyanka's life and her 20-year-long career, such as working as an actress-producer and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador.
