Priyanka Chopra is one among the few Indians who has now garnered for herself International fame too, with her music. The year 2013 saw her deliver two back-to-back hits and the dusky beauty is almost ready with her third release, I can’t make you love me, the peppy cover version of the Bonnie Raitt song.
PeeCee is now a worldwide name and her music has been welcomed beautifully. But you what the sad part is, the actress too has been a victim of racist attack, and was called an ‘Arab terrorist’ after her NFL performance!
Interestingly, this is not the first time she has face such a thing. Racism has been a part and parcel of her growing up days in the West.
So what PeeCee has to say about it?

I think the only way to go forward is to shut the detractors up with your work. Keep being an achiever, keep achieving, because there are so many people who support you.”
