Priyanka Chopra Reveals Director Asked To See Her Underwear On Set In ‘Dehumanizing Moment’

Priyanka Chopra is opening up about a time at work when she felt her boundaries were crossed. In a recent interview with The Zoe Report, the 40-year-old actress revealed early on in her Bollywood career, a director asked to see her underwear on set. “This may have been 2002 or ’03. I’m undercover, I’m seducing the guy — obviously that’s what girls do when they’re undercover. 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,'” she said. Priyanka continued on to share how the moment made her feel. “He didn’t say it to me. He said it to the stylist in front of me. It was such a dehumanizing moment. It was a feeling of, I’m nothing else outside of how I can be used, my art is not important, what I contribute is not important,” she said. The “Love Again” star said she worked for two more days before walking off the project.
