‘My dad used to sing in a mosque, I was aware of Islam’: Priyanka Chopra

Priyanka also spoke about her religious, spiritual views and her secular upbringing as a child in India.

London: Bollywood and Hollywood actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas’s interview with Oprah Winfrey is one of the most awaited ones after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s one with the American host. In the lastest promo that is surfacing online, Priyanka is seen talking about her religious and spiritual views. She also talks about her secular upbringing as a child in India.

What did Priyanka Chopra say?

In the promo clip, Oprah talked to Priyanka about India’s ‘spiritual energy’ and asked if she had a ‘spiritual foundation’. Replying to her, Priyanka said, “I think I did. In India, it is hard not to. You’re right. With the swirling number of religions that we have, that live within the country as well. I grew up in a convent school. I was aware of Christianity. My dad used to sing in a mosque, I was aware of Islam. I grew up in a Hindu family, I was aware of that. Spirituality is such a large part of India that you really cannot ignore it.”

Priyanka added how her late father, Dr Ashok Chopra, always taught her that all religions are ways to the same God. “I am a Hindu. I pray, I have a temple at my home, I do it as often as I can. But truly to me, I am a believer that a higher power does exist and I like to have faith in that,” she said.
