Actor and singer Priyanka Chopra made headlines with her autobiography titled Unfinished. From her personal experience in the Bollywood industry to her family revelations, the actress gave an insight into her life to her fans. One of the excerpts from the memoir was about her nose surgery that went totally wrong.

Priyanka Chopra revealed, “I was having trouble breathing. This is a problem someone with asthma can’t ignore. I ended up seeing a doctor recommended by a family friend, who discovered a polyp in my nasal cavity that would need to be surgically removed.”

While shaving her polyp, the doctor accidentally ended up shaving the bridge of her nose. Priyanka Chopra added, “When it was time to remove the bandages and the condition of my nose was revealed, Mom and I were horrified. My original nose was gone. My face looked completely different. I wasn’t me anymore. I didn’t think my sense of self or my self-esteem would ever recover from the blow. Let’s just call it out right now. I remember the media giving me the nickname ‘Plastic Chopra’ after my surgery.”

The actress then had to fix the damages via polypectomy. Well, that indeed is one horrific incident. But this unfiltered version of Priyanka Chopra makes her the global icon that she is today.

Earlier this year Chopra, called out an online publication for referring to her as ‘wife of Nick Jonas’. The Fashion diva took to her Instagram story to express her displeasure over being referred to as her husband’s wife instead of her own name.

“Very interesting that I’m promoting one of the most iconic film franchises of all time, and I’m still referenced as ‘the wife of…’. Please explain how this still happens to women? Should I add my IDMB link to my bio?” the actor wrote in her story.
