Before becoming the star of Bollywood, Priyanka Chopra Jonas was dropped out of two films at the beginning of her career because of a botched up plastic surgery. Priyanka underwent a polypectomy to remove polyps from her, however, after the procedure, the shape of her nose changed. Hearing the rumours that her face looked different after the surgery, makers of two films dropped her out of the project. Priyanka has shared this incident in her memoir ‘Unfinished’.
As reported by Bollywood Hungama, out of the first four films, the first film she shot for was the 2002 Thamizhan starring Vijay. The 38-year-old actor said that her experience on the sets of Thamizhan improved her confidence as there were no talks about her plastic surgery and the change in her appearance.
Priyanka added that the Tamil film was perfect for her debut as she found a very supportive team. Praising her first co-star Vijay, Priyanka said that he is a gracious and gifted actor. According to her, Vijay’s humility with fans made a lasting impression on her.
