Priyanka Chopra Reveals Her Hindu, Islamic, And Christian Upbringing In Oprah Interview Latest Promo
Priyanka Chopra Jonas is in the news lately after the launch of her memoir titled Unfinished. In the book, she has shared some hidden details of her personal life which many of us were unaware of until we read the book. The actress, who has made her mark in both Bollywood and Hollywood, turned author for the book, which is doing fantastically well with her fans. While promoting her memoir, Priyanka Chopra appeared on Oprah Winfrey’s talk show, where she spoke about how she had Christian, Islamic and Hindu influences on her life.
In a new promo video of her upcoming interview, Oprah mentions how reading Priyanka’s memoir reminded her of her own time in India. She talked to Priyanka about India’s ‘spiritual energy’ and asked if she had a ‘spiritual foundation’. Responding to her, Priyanka said, “I think I did. In India, it is hard not to. You’re right. With the swirling number of religions that we have, that live within the country as well. I grew up in a convent school. I was aware of Christianity. My dad used to sing in a mosque, I was aware of Islam. I grew up in a Hindu family, I was aware of that. Spirituality is such a large part of India that you really cannot ignore it.”
Priyanka added how her late father, Dr Ashok Chopra, always taught her that all religions are ways to the same God. “I am a Hindu. I pray, I have a temple at my home, I do it as often as I can. But truly to me, I am a believer that a higher power does exist and I like to have faith in that,” she said.
