Priyanka Chopra spoke about bullying in an American school

According to the 40-year-old actress, bullying by other children forced her to return to her homeland, India.

Priyanka Chopra spoke about the bullying she encountered while attending high school in one of the Boston schools. "It was 10th grade," the Citadel star told Call Her Daddy podcast host Alex Cooper. “And there was a group of girls… I think one of them thought her boyfriend was into me or we were hanging out with him. I was not even allowed to leave the house after school, where would I spend time with this guy? But there was this rumor that he spent the weekend with me, I don't know which of the girls was instead of me, but something like that happened. And these students started bullying me.”

According to Priyanka, it all started with verbal abuse related to her nationality, and gradually moved into a physical phase. “You know, pushing at lockers, shouting nasty things, writing in the bathroom. All this 'Mean Girls' nonsense that high school is made up of, you know," she added. “I can't go back and explore this. I can only say that it made me feel ... inferior, small.

After that, the future actress came to the conclusion that she needed to reboot and return to her roots, so she decided to return to her homeland. “I moved to India and thank God I did it because it launched my whole career,” Chopra explained.
