Priyanka Chopra lost movie role because of the ‘color of her skin’

“Quantico” star Priyanka Chopra has made it big in Hollywood, but the Indian actress revealed that because of her skin color, she hasn’t always been welcome in the entertainment industry.  Chopra, in an interview with InStyle published on Tuesday, told a story of discrimination she faced just last year, losing a chance for a movie role because she’s an actress of color. The actress, who also holds a Miss World title from 2000, said the issue of skin color extends to pay. Chopra said movie audiences need to support the work of strong women in order to combat the pay gap.
