Priyanka Chopra to Open up About Her Journey in Her Book Titled Unfinishedby Opinion Express June 21, 2018 0 comments
Written by Priyanka Chopra, Unfinished is a book which aims at inspiring women to dream big. Explaining her purpose of penning the short stories and personal experiences, she spoke about being fearless and having a voice for expressing her opinions.
The book has a collection of personal essays, stories, and observations as an actor, producer, activist and UNICEF goodwill ambassador. It will be published next year simultaneously in the US by Ballantine Books, an imprint of Penguin Random House US, and in the UK by Michael Joseph, an imprint of Penguin Random House UK.
“The flavour of the book will be honest, funny, spirited, bold, and rebellious, just like me. I have always been a private person; I’ve never spoken about my feelings during my journey but I am ready to do so now. I was raised to be fearless when it came to opinions, and I would like to tell my story in the hopes of inspiring people — especially women — to change the conversation, to shatter glass ceilings. Women are always told we can’t have everything. I want everything and I believe anyone else can have it too. I’m proof of it,” said Chopra.
“Unfinished by Priyanka Chopra is not just a memoir but a manifesto for women who believe that they can’t just have it all but that they deserve it all. Priyanka is one of the most influential women in the world and it is not a badge she wears lightly. I love how unapologetic she is about her success and her ambition. There’s something about the Priyanka Chopra phenomenon that feels both revolutionary and accessible, and that’s entirely a result of the person that she is” said Manasi Subramaniam, senior commissioning editor, Penguin Random House India, which is publishing the book in the country
“I met Priyanka Chopra for the first time when she delivered the Penguin Annual Lecture in New Delhi in 2017 and was amazed at the way people in the audience, and especially young women, responded to her words, her provocation and her rallying cry. We are committed to publishing strong female role models, and are immensely proud of having Priyanka Chopra on that list,” said Meru Gokhale, editor-in-chief, Literary Publishing, Penguin Random House India.
