Earlier this year, the 41-year-old actress opened up about how a botched nose surgery sent her into a deep depression and made her fear for her career on Howard Stern’s radio show. She had the surgery after winning the Miss World 2000 title. Later, in an interview, she described that period in her life as a dark phase.
According to Priyanka Chopra, she suffered from breathing problems and a persistent head cold after winning the Miss World pageant in 2000. When she sought medical attention, a doctor advised her to have a nose job to remove a polyp in her nasal cavity.
However, the operation resulted in a botched procedure in which the surgeon unintentionally shaved the bridge of her nose, causing it to collapse and change her appearance. As a result, she went through a dark phase and fell into a deep depression, fearing that her fledgling acting career would be over before it began.
Likely, Priyanka Chopra also revealed that she was fired from three film projects due to her new look. Later, in the interview, she mentioned her late father, Ashok Chopra, an Indian Army doctor who encouraged her to get a collective surgery. She stated,
This thing happens, and my face looks completely different, and I went into a deep, deep depression... it was over before it started. I was terrified of that, but he was like, ‘I will be in the room with you'. He held my hands through it and helped me build back my confidence.
She added that her father was the one who, after seeing her for a while in America, actually put bars on her bedroom window in India and hired a driver to drive her to and from school out of concern for her safety due to her appearance and sense of style. She explained,
My dad was super paranoid because he sent to America a 12-year-old with braids … and I come back, you know, a little bit more woman than my dad would’ve anticipated. I had boys follow me home and one of them jumped onto my balcony at night. That’s why my dad was like, ‘Fuck this! You [get] bars, and all your jeans are confiscated, you’re gonna wear Indian suits.’
Furthermore, the Baywatch actress also gave credit to filmmaker, Anil Sharma, who cast her as a supporting character in her first Hindi film, The Hero: Love Story of a Spy. She explained,
I was supposed to play this lead, and I was shifted to a supporting character. That filmmaker (Anil Sharma) was very kind… He, while the tide was against me, said, ‘It will be a small part, but give it your all.’ And I did.
Currently, Priyanka Chopra is doing well in her personal life as well as her career life. Of course, she's now married to singer, Nick Jonas, with whom she has one child. She seems to be happy and excited in her life with her new family. Well, we wish the Jones family the very best in the coming days.
