Actor, producer, entrepreneur, UNICEF Goodwill ambassador, philanthropist and author, Priyanka Chopra is simply unstoppable!
On August 2020, Priyanka Chopra Jonas informed her fans that she was writing her memoir, Unfinished. Her debut book now has a release date: February 9, 2021. Of late, the actor has been engaging with her fans, asking them to share their unfinished stories with her. “I was honest about things that mattered to me and my journey right now. Which is why I mean that this is a very honest reflection of where I am at the moment. I didn’t edit my book in a way that ‘this is something I don’t want to talk about’ or ‘this is something I can’. If it is true to me in the moment, it is in the book. If it doesn’t matter to me, it is not in the book. It is very honest telling of that tale,” she said in an interview.
Priyanka added that she had first thought about writing Unfinished in a format of letters to her younger self. But during the lockdown, she realised that she had few memories of her life. She then started jotting down moments and milestones that she could remember and spun the book around them.Priyanka was last seen in Netflix film The White Tiger. The film has earned critical acclaim and is also among the most popular films on Netflix currently. It stars Adarsh Gourav in the lead and Priyanka and Rajkummar Rao in supporting roles. Priyanka also served as an executive producer on the film, which is based on Aravind Adiga’s Man Booker Prize-winning book by the same name.
Priyanka already has three projects in development at Amazon — a reality series based on the pre-wedding ceremony; a thriller produced by the Russo brothers and co-starring Richard Madden; and a biopic of the controversial aide of a god man “My quest really is to be able to tell female stories, work with creators from around the world and create a cross-pollination of storytelling,” she says.
She recently announced the launch of her vegan haircare line, ‘Anomaly’-a 100 per cent vegan, eco-friendly, and affordable range of haircare products. The products will be launched in the United States from today and will soon enter global markets including India. The bottles used are made of 100 per cent plastic trash that have been extracted from landfill or ocean plastic.
“This was the most important thing to me when creating Anomaly. The bottles are made from 100 per cent plastic trash that has been diverted from landfill or ocean plastic”. “Our formulas are also free from ingredients that harm the planet, like mineral oil- a byproduct of petroleum which sadly a lot of other brands still use.
