Priyanka Chopra is certainly ruling the world today! And now; the actress has given her opinion about sexual harassment faced by women these days.


Speaking at the 10th Annual Women in the World Summit in New York on Thursday; Priyanka said," Sexual harassment had become a norm with women." She said that this sort of behavior of men is justified,' more often than not by the "boys will be boys" mentality.'


She further said," We always had a voice. Just nobody heard us. Now because of the support we're giving each other, nobody can shut us down. And that's an incredibly powerful thing to see. Now if I have a story I don't feel I'm alone anymore, and I'm not ashamed of it."


Priyanka seems to be one of the only actors who have successfully crossed over to the West. Speaking about why a lot of Bollywood actors choose to not venture out of Bollywood territories; Piggy Chopps said," A lot of actors that I speak to don't have ambitions to move out of the industry. Bollywood is the biggest, if not the first industry to make films and the demographic is so large, they don't want to leave that."


Elaborating on the stereotyping of South Asian actors in Hollywood; Priyanka said "I played ethnically ambiguous parts", which helped her break the mould. She further said," It took me all those ethnically ambiguous parts to be where I am today. I did not want to do stereotype roles because then all you will see is what I already know I can do. I am Indian, I can do that."


Priyanka; a successful Bollywood actress, producer and now a Hollywood actor too is also UNICEF's Goodwill Ambassador! The actress said she is proud to be married to a man like Nick Jonas.


Recalling an anecdote from one of her first dates; Prianka revealed she They were out with their friends, and Priyanka had a meeting. She began dropping hints to the group about needing an excuse to cancel her meeting, but Nick wasn't taking the hint. 


The Don actress said, "I said it twice. I said it thrice. And finally he pulled me aside and was like, ‘Look, I'm not stupid, I know what you're trying to do. But I will never be the one that tells you to cancel work, because I know how hard you work to be where you are'. I was like, this is the first (time) anyone has ever done that for me, the first person who gave me credit for what I have done."
