Priyanka Chopra Jonas opened up about going through a "deep depression" following a bungled polyp-removal surgery. In a recent interview on The Howard Stern Show, the Citadel actress revealed that her career was almost ruined after a routine procedure left her botched.
"This thing happens, and my face looks completely different, and I went into a deep, deep depression," she said of what was to be a routine removal of a polyp from her nasal cavity.
The surgery gone wrong began a "dark phase" for Chopra Jonas, who told Stern she was let go from three movies following the procedure. This awoke concerns that her acting career would be "over before it started."
Eventually, Chopra Jonas, who was admittedly hesitant toward going under the knife again, had corrective surgery at the advisement of her father, who was also a doctor.
"I was terrified of that," admitted Chopra Jonas, adding that her father's support ultimately got her through the ordeal. "He was like, 'I will be in the room with you.' He held my hands through it and helped me build back my confidence," she said.
During the interview, she also gave Bollywood film director Anil Sharma a special shout-out for helping her career at such a crucial time.
