MUMBAI: Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra admitted to falling prey to unrealistic beauty standards in her youth and bought into the ‘equity on lighter skin’. 

She had attracted backlash for endorsing fairness creams some years ago, but has since expressed regret about it in her book 'Unfinished.' 

Speaking to Laura Brown in her 'Ladies First' Podcast, Priyanka said that she simply decided to discard any pretense of being perfect. 

"The fact that you have to be perfect, your face has to be perfect, your hair has to be perfect, you have to dress perfect, speak perfect, you have to have the right opinion on everything, you have to say the right thing. I think that part was the first time I kind of was like, ‘Forget it, I’m okay being messy sometimes," she said.
