After dropping Jonas surname, Priyanka Chopra now recalls wondering if wearing a mangalsutra is too patriarchal. The actress shared a video on her Instagram on Tuesday where she is seen talking about her mixed feeling wearing the mangalustra.
PeeCee says, “I remember when I wore mine for the first time… because we have grown with the idea of what it means. It was just a very special moment for me. At the same time, as a modern woman, I also understand the repercussions of what it means. Do I like the idea of wearing mangalsutra or is it too patriarchal?”
She continues, “At the same time, I am that generation that’s sort of in the middle. Maintain tradition but know who you are and what you stand for. And we’ll see the next generation of girls might do differently.”
Priyanka captioned the video as, “A conversation starter for sure…”
