Priyanka Chopra reveals film director demanded to see her underwear, causing her to quit

Priyanka Chopra is reflecting upon her time as an actress, detailing a moment where she felt her boundaries were crossed.

An India native, Chopra’s career accelerated after she won the Miss World 2000 pageant. She began starring in Bollywood films, and was hired to work with a director she was unfamiliar with. “This may have been 2002 or ’03,” she told The Zoe Report.

“I’m undercover, I’m seducing the guy — obviously that’s what girls do when they’re undercover,” she explained of her character. “But I’m seducing the guy and you have to take off one piece of clothing [at a time]. I wanted to layer up. The filmmaker was like, ‘No, I need to see her underwear. Otherwise why is anybody coming to watch this movie?’”

“He didn’t say it to me,” she recalled of the heartbreaking moment. “He said it to the stylist in front of me. It was such a dehumanizing moment.”

“I just couldn’t look at him every day,” the actress, 40, said of the unnamed director.

A representative for the actress did not immediately return Fox News Digital’s request for comment.

“I had been on the cover of this [fashion] magazine six times in India and they wouldn’t take a meeting with me in America. Because they were like, ‘Oh, I don’t know what we’ll do with her.’”

Today, Chopra is one of the highest-paid Indian actresses in Hollywood.

“I was 17 years old when I started doing this. I’ve been picked apart — my actions, decisions have been scrutinized,” she said while acknowledging she created a different public and private personality for herself.
