Priyanka Chopra to release memoir: Women are always told we can’t have everything. I want everything, and I believe anyone else can have it too

OHMYGOSSIP — Priyaka Chopra is writing memoir on her ‘private’ journey. The 35-year-old actress will detail her meteoric rise to fame in her upcoming memoir ‘Unfinished’, which will see her tell the full story of her journey from her birth in India, to winning Miss World in 2000, to her life now as a Hollywood movie star, HuffingtonPost mediates.

Chopra hopes her story will be motivational for people, “especially women”, who want to achieve their dreams and “shatter glass ceilings”. Speaking in a press release, Priyanka said: “The flavour of the book will be honest, funny, spirited, bold, and rebellious, just like me. 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.”

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.

Unfinished is set to hit shelves next year in India, America, and the UK, and is being published by Penguin Random House, according to the Times of India. The ‘Baywatch’ star’s journey into motivational memoirs comes after she’s long campaigned for equality and women’s rights, and recently revealed she has been “digging her feet in” to get equality for women in the film industry.

She said: “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! …

“I’m digging my feet in and not gonna settle ever. Because it’s gonna take people like me, like a lot of other women out there, to make it easier for the next generation where they don’t have to feel like, ‘Oh, there are not parts written for us. We always have to stand behind the guy.’ [We have to] create parts for ourselves because nobody else is gonna do it.”
