Priyam Saha , 24 Oct 2016

Priyanka Chopra is taking over the world, one day at a time. She’s built herself a successful international career in a very short span and continues to be one of the top Bollywood heroines at the same time. In a recent interview to Barkha Dutt, she spoke about an incident when she was asked to sign a really bizarre contract.

She said:

I was signing a contract for a big corporation a couple of years ago, and a clause there said that they (the corporation) could terminate it (the contract) if I got pregnant.I was livid. How could you tell me I could not get pregnant.. Not sick.. not overweight.. just pregnant! Their logic was that I would not be able to deliver the project on time. I was fine with working when I am pregnant. We had a big argument over it. I said ‘Alright, if I can’t deliver when I am pregnant, you have the right to terminate my contract. If I can deliver, and you don’t want me to, then I have the right to terminate.
