“I’m still used to being paid — like most actresses around the world — a lot less than the boys,” she continues. “We’re told we’re too provocative or that being sexy is our strength, which it can be, and it is, but that’s not the only thing we have.”
“So there are so many things that you will be told,” she adds. “It’ll be scary. There will be strife. But women have incredible endurance and incredible strength. Your ability to deal with it is within you.”
Priyanka moved to the US when she was 12 and had to return after she was bullied in school.
“That girl in school used to call me ‘curry,’ ” she adds. “You’re scared of those things. We’re afraid of letting people see the glory of who we are.”
