Priyanka Chopra deems writing a memoir as ‘Healing’

Priyanka Chopra found writing her memoir to be “cathartic”.

The 38-year-old star admits to having lived a “crazy” life, but she relished the experience of recalling her career highs and lows for her new memoir, ‘Unfinished’.

The actress – who is married to Nick Jonas – shared: “It was something I was afraid of, something I wanted to attempt, honestly.

“For me, it was very cathartic, almost healing. I’ve had such a crazy sort of life – you know, multiple continents that I work on that when I was home for six months, I had the ability to really dig deep and think about what I was writing and the tone I wanted.”

Priyanka – who was born in India but now lives in the US – has enjoyed success in Bollywood and Hollywood during her career. But the actress still struggles to comprehend what she’s achieved.

She told the BBC: “It doesn’t feel real. I’m just a girl who goes to work doing my job. It’s not an easy job, being in the public eye, especially as a performing artist. It’s very hard because it’s difficult for people to bifurcate that there’s a human being and this is an actor and they’re acting, and then there’s a person, and you kind of become fodder, very often.

“And having done it for 20 years now I’ve kind of made peace with that but it’s not easy to do.”

Priyanka previously admitted she was “terrified” by the idea of releasing her memoir.

The ‘Baywatch’ actress shared: “This is not a memoir of: ‘Here is me and my laurels and achievements.’ This book is me dissecting my failures, my vulnerabilities, my emotions, the times I went back to my room and cried on my pillow. That surprised me.

“I never discuss this stuff. I don’t even discuss it with my family and here I am discussing it with the world, so I’m terrified.”
