  • In March 2023, she appeared on a podcast, “Armchair Expert With Dax Shepard,” in which she talked about her transition from Bollywood to Hollywood and the dark side of nepotism in Bollywood. While revealing that she was compelled to move to Hollywood as she was not getting roles in the industry, Ms Chopra said that she was pushed into a corner in the industry. She said,

    I was being pushed into a corner in the industry. I had beef with people, and again, I’m not good at playing the game. I was kind of just tired of the politics.”

    According to Ms Chopra, it was her short-lived music career that helped her get recognition in Hollywood. On the podcast, she claimed that outsiders have to struggle a lot in Bollywood due to prevailing nepotism in the industry. She added,

    I’m not a nepo baby. I didn’t have the kind of support that exists in a big way in Bollywood movies. There are multigenerational actors that get in and get multiple opportunities versus the ones that come from outside,” she said during the episode. “You don’t have your uncle making a new movie for you just because the last one tanked. You have to hustle for it.” [8]NBC News
