"Not everybody in the jury was initially in favour of her".

Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra had won the Miss World title at the age of 17 and since then, she has been unstoppable. "One person mentioned she's too dark", he recalls, without naming the jury member.

'I said, "Yaar come on - look at South American girls. 'I was always very certain about her and as I said this woman never made a mistake twice".

Speaking to In Style, the 36-year-old said: 'I was out for a movie, and somebody [from the studio] called one of my agents and said, "She's the wrong"-what word did they used?-"physicality".

Talking about Priyanka's journey to becoming one of the biggest stars of the country, Guha added in the book, "She kind of always improved on herself day on day, the day on day". I knew that she would give in 200 percent if she gets in. I think she wasn't quite sure initially whether this was the thing she wanted to do. Priyanka's choices took her to the West where she headlines the cast of television show Quantico. She came in a bit tentatively.

"I noticed her at the talent contest because she sang beautifully. I told Pradeep she is going to win something", Saran says.

"This time, they were better prepared and additional questions were posed to both Priyanka and Lara".

Priyanka Chopra is now one of the most recognisable faces in the world, has multiple Hollywood projects to prove it and has definitely put Bollywood on the map.

Priyanka - who is of Punjabi descent - has spoken out about struggling as a young woman due to her darker skin tone, and recently revealed she was turned down for a role because of her skin.
