Bollywood Cannot Accommodate Priyanka



Priyanka Chopra

The sad  truth about Priyanka  Chopra’s talent is,there are no takers for it in  Bollywood.A hotshot  producer-director  who is  said  to be  very close to Priyanka  when asked about the possibility of working with her and he replied, “Am I mad?

It  was  all very internecine,  messy and unsolvable . Priyanka  had no choice  but to  start afresh in another part  of  the world. Her  career  in the West was  not  a professional strategy.
