An actor, dancer, singer, philanthropist and now soon-to-be author, Priyanka Chopra is all set to write her first book named Unfinished and we’re sure it’s going to be just as amazing as anything she’s put her hands on. The superstar took to Instagram to share the news with all of us.

The feeling of checking something off your “bucket list” gives you an indescribable sense of accomplishment…and that’s where I am in this moment. I’ve always wanted to write a book, but the timing never felt right. With each opportunity that presented itself, my first instinct was always to wait…because I wasn’t (and I’m still not) finished. I wanted to do more, live more, and achieve more, before putting pen to paper and exposing things I’ve always kept private to the world. But looking back on my life as a public person, I’m super proud of what I’ve done and where my life is right now. I’ve realized you don’t have to be finished to tell your story, and that sometimes life’s greatest lessons are taught along the ride…when you’re still figuring things out…when you’re #unfinished. So glad to be starting a new chapter (literally) with the amazing teams at Penguin Random House in the US, India, and around the world. If I can…anyone can @penguinusa @randomhouse @penguinindia . 📷 Credit: Sebastian Kim x Vanity Fair
The book will be a collection of personal essays, stories, and observations by our desi girl. The book will be published in India, US and UK simultaneously.
Speaking about her book she says the book will be honest, funny, spirited, bold, and rebellious, just like her.
“I have always been a private person; I’ve never spoken about my feelings during my journey but I am ready to do so now. I was raised to be fearless when it came to opinions, and I would like to tell my story in the hopes of inspiring people–especially women–to change the conversation, to shatter glass ceilings. Women are always told we can’t have everything. I want everything, and I believe anyone else can have it too. I’m proof of it.”
Manasi Subramaniam, Senior Commissioning Editor of Penguin Random House India had the best things to say about Unfinished.
“Unfinished by Priyanka Chopra is not just a memoir but a manifesto for women who believe that they can’t just have it all but that they deserve it all. I love how unapologetic she is about her success and her ambition. There’s something about the Priyanka Chopra phenomenon that feels both revolutionary and accessible, and that’s entirely a result of the person that she is.”
Unfinished will be published in 2019.
