Priyanka Chopra was thrilled to see her memoir featured on a six-storey billboard in New York City, and took to Instagram to share her excitement. The actress posted a photo of the billboard outside Penn Station and called it surreal.
“#Unfinished on a six-storey @amazonbooks billboard in NYC outside of Penn Station … Surreal! So thrilled to be included in this #WomensHistoryMonth celebration to amplify women’s voices. What makes it more special is that it’s exactly a month since I released Unfinished,” she wrote on Instagram. Hrithik Roshan, Zoya Akhtar and Dia Mirza were among Indian celebs who commented on her post.
Described as a “collection of personal essays, stories and observations”, the book chronicles important moments in Chopra’s life and her twenty-year-long career, such as working as an actress-producer and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador.
The actress is also proud of the fact that her film The White Tiger has won two nominations at the Bafta awards. “What a proud moment for Indian talent with 2 BAFTA nominations for an ALL INDIAN STAR CAST!! Ecstatic for you @gouravadarsh, you are so deserving of this recognition, and congratulations #RaminBahrani, so well deserved. I feel extremely proud to have been an executive producer on this movie! Let’s get it,” she posted.
Adarsh has been nominated alongside Riz Ahmed (Sound Of Metal), the late Chadwick Boseman (Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom), Mads Mikkelsen (Another Round), Anthony Hopkins (The Father) and Tahar Rahim (The Mauritanian). Director Ramin Bahrani also received a BAFTA nomination in the adapted screenplay category.
