Oprah Winfrey’s all-new Super Soul series dropped the exclusive promo of an intimate conversation between Winfrey and Priyanka Chopra. In the highly anticipated sit-down, she will be seen talking about her personal life and growing up as a child in India.
Answering Oprah about finding her voice during the pandemic by deciding to write a memoir at a very young age, and whether it was all that Covid time that led her to do so, Priyanka said, “I have to say a little bit of it had to do with that, but I had committed to writing the book in 2018, and in between all those flights and the little time I would get in all the hotel rooms that I would live I could just never write. But I had this time because of Covid and that helped me really delve deep.”
“And honestly, I also feel like I, as a woman in a little bit more of a secure place, where I felt like I could leave behind the insecurities of my twenties and not worry about the things that used to scare me before, as much. I have a little but more confidence in myself, in what I bring to the table professionally, personally. So, I think that really helped me address my life and I just always wanted to write a book. And I thought the easiest way to do it would be to write about my life,” explained Priyanka.
They then spoke about Priyanka’s fairytale love story with her husband Nick Jonas. Oprah mentioned that in her book it says that Priyanka thinks her mom “dreamed him up”. To this Priyanka said, “I may have judged the book by the cover. I did not honestly take it very seriously when he was texting me. I was 35. I was, like, I want to get married. I want to have kids.
He is, you know, in his 20s. I do not know that is something he would want to do. Like I did that to myself for a while. Till I actually went out with him. And nothing surprised me more than him.”
Praising her hubby, she continued, “He is such a self-assured man. So sensible. So excited about my achievements. My dreams. You know, such a true partnership that he offers me in — in everything that we do together. That I truly believe that my mom manifested him.”
Speaking about missing her home, Priyanka said, “I just miss India. I have not been back since Holi last year and, you know, India’s my home and I just want to come back visit and smell it and live it and meet my friends and I also want to, you know, do a Hindi movie.” “I have not done that for a while. So, I just miss home a lot. I just want to be able to get on a flight and land in Mumbai,” she concluded.
