Priyanka Chopra: 'My dark skin was a problem in Bollywood'

Priyanka Chopra has claimed that her skin was a problem when she first started acting.

The actress will next be seen playing a hearing and speech impaired woman in Barfi!.

She told The Times of India: "People had a lot of issues about the fact that I was dusky and not a conventional-looking heroine. But I still got the opportunities I did. Grooming is a very important part of any girl's life.

"In the early days, I did not even know how to apply make-up. Over the years, with the help of various teams, I have worked on a vision of me and there are things that I could change in the process. This is true of most heroines.

"You learn to take care of yourself. I am not against plastic surgery. If it helps build self-esteem, I don't think there is anything wrong with it. But if it becomes an obsession, that can be a problem. For me, I got confidence from my films doing well."

In July, the 30-year-old left Twitter for two weeks because of negative comments from users on the site.

The star has previously said that she wants to be the most in-demand actress in Bollywood.
