Priyanka Chopra is all set to have a life in the US after Quantico, Baywatch, and her wedding plans with Nick Jonas.


After the Internet broke with her engagement photos, the actor went back to the States and then to Mexico to shoot for her upcoming movie. 

While all the international magazines are talking about her high net worth and soaring career, the actor has spoken about facing racial discriminations in the West. 

On Koffee With Karan's last season interview, PC shared a shocking instance where the flight staff assumed her to be an economy class passenger because of the colour of her skin.

The actor talked about a flight she took from Europe to New York, where she wanted to use the washroom but was stopped by a crew member who said that it was reserved for first-class passengers only. The attendant made the assumption that Priyanka was not travelling first class, solely based on the colour of her skin. According to her, they realised their mistake and apologised for it. 

PC has been vocal about Hollywood's misconceptions about Indians, and how she wants to break those stereotypes by doing roles that are different. More power to her, we say!
