An unofficial biography about Indian actress, singer and Miss World 2000 winner Priyanka Chopra makes an uncomfortable allegation.
The book by Aseem Chhabra mentions one of the mentors of Miss India 2000, Pradeep Guha, who revealed how, “Not everybody in the jury was initially in favour of her. One person mentioned she’s too dark.”
A rep for Chopra addressed the statements published in Priyanka Chopra: The Incredible Story of a Global Bollywood Star. “We don’t have anything to add,” the rep told ET Canada. “This book was written entirely independent of Priyanka.”
Social media was fuming over the unnamed juror’s alleged remarks.
