Quantico star Priyanka Chopra is currently one of the most successful international actors in the world. However, things were not always the same for her. She is a self-made actor who used nothing but her talent and hard work for getting onto the top.

However, at the beginning of her career a wrong-gone plastic surgery almost ruined her journey in Bollywood. If an excerpt by Scroll.in from her yet-to-be-released biography is to be believed, Priyanka had to delay her Bollywood debut due to a botched up nose and lip surgery.
At the beginning of her career, PeeCee was gearing up for her Bollywood debut opposite Bobby Deol, in a Vijay Galani film. And right before the film was about to enter the editing phase, Priyanka got a nose job done which made things go wrong for PeeCee.
The producer of her debut film, Vijay revealed "She'd just had some nasal surgery done in London where the bridge of her nose had collapsed. I couldn't believe what I was seeing. I had a little bit of shooting here in Film City and then a long schedule planned in London. How could we shoot with the heroine's nose looking the way it did?"
Priyanka was herself pretty unsure about the surgery, Vijay added "She was absolutely confident that it was a temporary situation and that the nose would settle down in a month's time, definitely by the time we left for London."
International star and Baywatch actress was dropped out of every project she signed at that time due to her surgery. Although her former manager Prakash Jaju had to plead with filmmaker Anil Sharma, to retain her in The Hero: Love Story of a Spy.
However as per filmmaker Anil Sharma, this story is not correct. "That's a fake story. When I signed her for The Hero, I didn't have a script ready. We were only sure that Sunny Deol would play the title role, nothing else was finalised. When Priyanka was signed, it was talked of as a Sunny-Priyanka film. But the script hadn't been written and when it was, it happened to have two girls in it, both opposite Sunny. Preity played one role, Priyanka the other," he clarified.Follow our Bollywood Magazine For Latest Bollywood News and Gossips.
