Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra, who recently released her second international music video ‘Exotic’ featuring Pitbull, has been under scrutiny not just for the content of the video but also her attire in the song. Especially Priyanka Chopra’s net dress has come under scanner.
“I believe there is no need to be judgmental. Women have been wearing net dresses for ages now. I have worn it myself so many times, recent instance being at TOIFA. It is one of the most common combinations for a sexy outfit,” said Priyanka Chopra to Times of Indian in an exclusive interview.
Priyanka Chopra is irritated that an attire that’s hardly seen for 10 seconds has gained such attention while her other outfits have been ignored.
“I am also wearing this silver top and shorts with chains. Then there is this whole '80s style neon swimsuit with comic book shoes. All these things are not being talked about and instead, we are stuck debating this outfit which comes for barely 10 seconds,” she said.
The actress turned singer said that she doesn’t let her detractors bring her down.
“When somebody wants to pull you down and talk negative, then they will do so anyways. For me, it is a new thing to sing and perform in an international music video and I did it,” she said.
“I may not be the most path breaking artist in the world but then, I have tried to do something different. I am trying to expose the world to Bollywood music without it being stereotypical. They say that an India song is bound to have 100 dancers in the background. We have done it differently here. I wanted India and I to go mainstream. If that is an effort which cannot be supported, then it's fine,” she concluded.
‘Exotic’ is Priyanka Chopra’s second single for her yet to be released international album. Last year PC released her first single ‘In My City’ featuring will.i.am. Both ‘In My City’ and ‘Exotic’ have received mixed reviews from critics.
