Priyanka Chopra has also been subjected to racial slurs in her childhood
Priyanka, during the interview with the daily, said that she believes that one shouldn't be passing such remarks on the basis of one's skin colour.
The Bollywood actress also informed that she has also been subjected to racial slurs in her childhood and has learnt how to deal with it.
Earlier another Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty had become the victim of racist attack during a International celebrity show Big Brother which was aired on Channel 4.
The incidents centred on comments made by contestants on this reality television show, most notably the late Jade Goody, glamour model Danielle Lloyd, and singer Jo O'Meara, which were directed towards Shilpa Shetty.
The screening of these comments on UK television resulted in national and international media coverage, responses from the UK and Indian governments.
