Actress Priyanka Chopra, who is writing her memoir titled Unfinished, always wanted to write a book but wanted to wait to do a bit more in life. But now she feels she doesn't have to be "finished" to tell her story.

"The feeling of checking something off your 'bucket list' gives you an indescribable sense of accomplishment...and that's where I am in this moment," Priyanka posted on Instagram on Wednesday.

The post came a day after the official announcement of the memoir, which will be published simultaneously in India, the US and Britain next year.

Priyanka, whose foray into the entertainment industry began at the age of 17 when she won Miss India and went on to win Miss World, followed by Bollywood and now Hollywood, hopes to inspire people with the feelings she during the course of what has been a "fascinating" journey.

Unfinished is a collection of personal essays, stories, and observations by the Unicef Goodwill Ambassador. She hopes to spread the message: "If I can...anyone can."

When Priyanka looks back on her life as a public person, she says she feels "super proud of what I've done and where my life is right now".

The full post said:

"The feeling of checking something off your “bucket list” gives you an indescribable sense of accomplishment...and that’s where I am in this moment. I’ve always wanted to write a book, but the timing never felt right. With each opportunity that presented itself, my first instinct was always to wait...because I wasn’t (and I’m still not) finished. I wanted to do more, live more, and achieve more, before putting pen to paper and exposing things I’ve always kept private to the world. But looking back on my life as a public person, I’m super proud of what I’ve done and where my life is right now. I’ve realized you don’t have to be finished to tell your story, and that sometimes life’s greatest lessons are taught along the ride...when you’re still figuring things out...when you’re #unfinished. So glad to be starting a new chapter (literally) with the amazing teams at Penguin Random House in the US, India, and around the world. If I can...anyone can"
