Priyanka Chopra Jonas has introduced her long-awaited memoir Unfinished to fans on social media as the book prepares for its release on January 19, 2021.
Priyanka took to Instagram to reveal the book cover and described her writing process in a series of posts. The actress revealed that she had named the book years before she started writing it.
“Ironically, I named this memoir years before I started writing it. Having been a public person now for 20 years, with so much life to live and a long list of things to check off my list personally and professionally, I am very much Unfinished.” Priyanka added that: “But the funny thing about writing a memoir is that it forces you to look at things differently, reconciling so many things you thought you had put to bed. In doing so I’ve realized that being ‘unfinished’ has deeper meaning for me, and has in fact been one of the most common threads of my life.”
Priyanka Chopra said her life is “no fairy tale”: “I have taken many leaps of faith, often times when I was advised not to…and even when I too was afraid. Some risks paid off, some didn’t (my life is not a fairytale, although I do hate to lose…c’est la vie), but what I learned during this process is that I have never shied away from change, or forced guilt on myself for leaving something unfinished if that’s what my evolution as an individual required.”
In the third post, the actress wrote that she hoped her life would inspire her readers to unapologetically own their choices.
“While you’ll definitely learn about how I became me during the “in between” of what you haven’t seen, I also hope you’ll walk away with the confidence of knowing that IT’S OK to pick up, walk away, leave things unfinished, and move on to what’s next if that’s what your journey requires to get to the next destination. We all have a different story to tell, this is my story, and I am #Unfinished,” Priyanka concluded.
