Priyanka Chopra Jonas, who was last seen in The White Tiger alongside Rajkummar Rao, has been seen in international projects in the last few years. Recently, in an interview with the BBC, the star revealed that she feels a ‘sense of negativity from her own South Asian Community while she also admitted that there are a few people who are also protective about her. The 38-year-old also said that she and the ‘very few’ other brown people in the entertainment industry are trying to push for inclusivity in Hollywood.

However, they get to face a lot of negativity from their own community. Talking about the same, Priyanka said, "I do notice a sense of protectiveness from a lot of people but also a sense of cynicism from a lot of people and a sense of negativity from a lot of people that have known me for a really long time. Picking on me for no reason.” Priyanka also said that a couple of months ago she was talking about this to Mindy Kaling and they were discussing about why is that they get so much negativity from their own community.

“Very few brown people are in the entertainment business in Hollywood, right? You can count us on your fingers. What our attempt is we are literally, with our own two hands, trying to create more opportunity for people like us. So, why is there so much negativity for us?" she added.

The actress also said that when she started working in Hollywood in 2015 for Quantico, she realised it's not normal to people's consciousness that a leading man or woman can be Indian in a mainstream Hollywood show. She further stated that she has started noticing the difference between fans that know her and are protective of her. “They are the wind beneath my wings. I also feel disheartened and discouraged by the other side,” PeeCee added.

When asked about not using social media and being silent on certain issues, she said that the position that she finds herself in is a no-win situation. “So when you speak, you become dinner table conversation,” she added. Priyanka also feels that there’s no point in discussing things that are not crucial enough. She further added that she is a public person, an actor, but her job is not dependent on people's opinions.

On the work front, Priyanka has recently wrapped up the shooting for Text For You in London. She also has a film based on the life of Maa Anand Sheela and Matrix 4 in her kitty.

Exactly what success has she had for us to be jealous Quantico flopped & got cancelled, all other flash in the pan roles in flop Hwood movies. Movies like 'we can be heres whose prequels were flops in the theaters suddenly became a hit while on streaming services after kamwali was in it , how? And her book became a bestseller even before it got released? This is just like her 60 million instagrams followers most of whom who were found to be fake...its very easy to fake the numbers for someone who can have paid fake followers. Just like her people's choice awards wins
