There have been so many different occasions over the years, where we have seen a huge Bollywood superstar deciding to take the plunge and make the move to the US in pursuit of Hollywood success, only to find that it is actually a lot harder for them to enjoy a successful acting career in Hollywood, than it has been during their long and successful career in Bollywood.
Bollywood beauty Priyanka Chopra, who was crowned Miss World 2000, has enjoyed plenty of success as a Bollywood actress, so decided to follow suit and attempt to make a name for herself in Hollywood. Since then, Priyanka has gone on to land a number of exciting acting roles, becoming one of the most sought after actresses in the business, but she has admitted that it was not easy when she first came over.
Chopra explained, "When the opportunity came my way [to work in America], I saw it as an opportunity to break the ceiling for actors that look like me. Once I was asked not to be a part of a cast because I was too ethnic ... I didn't realise how hard it was until I came to North America. I've had people take away films from me because I might not have agreed with them."
Well Priyanka Chopra did not let the haters and the doubters get the better of her and she has since gone on to prove that she belongs alongside the biggest and the best names that Hollywood has to offer. We have loved what we have seen from Priyanka both in Bollywood and Hollywood and we look forward to seeing plenty more from her in the coming years.
