Global star Priyanka Chopra Jonas has done a tell-all interview of sorts with Oprah Winfrey, snippets of which are making way to social media in the lead up to the episode premiere.
In the latest promo of the Oprah interview, Priyanka is seen talking about having a spiritual foundation and how her family believed in the existence of a higher power and she does too. She also talks about being aware of Christianity, Islam and Hinduism growing up.
When Oprah talks about her own experience from her visits to India and asks Priyanka to open up on her spiritual foundation, the actress says, “In India, it is hard not to with the swirling number of religions that live within the country. I grew up in a convent school, so 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. Spirituality is such a large part of India that you cannot ignore it but also my family believed in having a higher power, having a sense of faith. My dad used to tell me that religion is a way to get to the Supreme power. Every religion has a different face to the same direction where we are going. I am a Hindu, I have a temple in my home and I pray as often as I can but at the same time, I am a believer of the fact that a higher power does exist and I like to have faith in that.”
The interview of Oprah with Priyanka will air on Discovery Plus on March 20.
