Priyanka Chopra has emerged as that one icon that has become every woman’s source of inspiration. Making her presence known in every sphere, be it Hollywood or Bollywood, she has found her niche as one of the ‘outspoken’ celebrities. And yep, she had something to say about her friend, Meghan Markle’s interview in Vanity fair.
In an interview, she talks about the issues surrounding gender equality.
“Well, first of all, just to take a step back, women had had to choose what they wanna make because parts are not written in Hollywood or entertainment. We’re so far behind, I mean we just had Wonder Woman, which is our first big major female superhero movie directed by a female. We’ve just had one director that’s ever won an Academy Award who is female ever in the history of entertainment. I mean, come on! “
She has made the decision to “dig her feet in,” and become that revolutionary change that would clear paths for the women of the next generation. So when her close mate and fellow actress and activist Meghan Markle was covered by Vanity Fair, Priyanka Chopra had much to say about it.
“I don’t know if I will get into trouble for this, but I have an opinion. I mean, she’s on the cover of Vanity Fair. It would have been nice to write about her not just her boyfriend. I’m just saying. I mean, she’s an actor, she’s an activist, she’s a philanthropist. I mean, she does so much more.”
Though, in the article itself, we read that Meghan Markle has “never defined herself” by her relationship. But the article seemed rather biased toward her relationship with Prince Harry and Priyanka found it rather unsettling. “It’s just a little sexist. Look, I’m a feminist and I love boys, okay… The only thing I’m saying is that there needs to be a certain sense of equality where a woman is not just a plus one, you know. It’s nice to be your own identity too.”
