Priyanka Chopra is on a roll with her memoir, Unfinished. The actress is leaving no stone unturned to promote it to the fullest and for the same she has been giving back to back interviews in the west.

Her book contains a lot of the incidents from her real life and significant events that shaped up her life so far. From talking about her relationship with Nick Jonas to being candid about social media trolling, the diva has bared her soul to the readers in her memoir. But, she has also shared that the things that don't matter in her life anymore are not mentioned.

Further, she has also spoken about the hate and criticism that she received online when shared a picture of herself with the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi. Back then when PeeCee met the PM and shared glimpses of her meeting with him on her social media account, she was questioned for her posture and her choice of clothing. She had worn a knee-length floral dress on the occasion and sat with her legs crossed on the occasion.

Along with the picture, Priyanka wrote, "Was such a lovely coincidence to be in #berlin at the same time as the Prime Minister. Thank you @narendramodi Sir for taking the time from your packed schedule to meet me this morning"

However, people were not pleased with the way she presented herself and that led to social media bashing of the actress. Priyanka talked about the incident and wrote,

The prime minister and I happened to be staying at the same hotel, and I contacted his office to request an audience with him.

She then added and revealed that all the trolling and backlash made her very sad and that after this incident, she was 'global news'.

My response to the anger was to take a picture of my mom and me out at dinner that night in our short skirts and with our legs crossed, and post it online with the caption ‘it runs in the family’. But all joking aside, I felt that I had presented myself respectfully. I had worn skirts and dresses all my life in India, at school and elsewhere, and I didn't understand why it was now considered so unacceptable. The whole uproar baffled and saddened me.

A part of the book reads,

It was one of the firsts I became global news and I swear that was not the way I wanted to make global news. I was angry and confused.

Priyanka Chopra's book has been touching upon many of such similar themes. The actress' journey from a small town in Uttar Pradesh to a rising star in Hollywood has been an inspiration to one an all.

On the work front, she was last seen in the Netflix film The White Tiger, co-starring Rajkummar Rao and Aadarsh Gourav. It was helmed by Ramin Bahrani and the flick became a massive success internationally. Priyanka received a lot of love and praise for her act.
