Priyanka Chopra is best known as an actress, singer, film producer, and philanthropist, but now she can add author to that list. The Quantico star took to Instagram this morning to announce her memoir, Unfinished.
The feeling of checking something off your “bucket list” gives you an indescribable sense of accomplishment…and that’s where I am in this moment. I’ve always wanted to write a book, but the timing never felt right. With each opportunity that presented itself, my first instinct was always to wait…because I wasn’t (and I’m still not) finished. I wanted to do more, live more, and achieve more, before putting pen to paper and exposing things I’ve always kept private to the world. But looking back on my life as a public person, I’m super proud of what I’ve done and where my life is right now. I’ve realized you don’t have to be finished to tell your story, and that sometimes life’s greatest lessons are taught along the ride…when you’re still figuring things out…when you’re #unfinished. So glad to be starting a new chapter (literally) with the amazing teams at Penguin Random House in the US, India, and around the world. If I can…anyone can @penguinusa @penguinindia . ?

Penguin Random House India, which will publish the book along with divisions in the United States and Britain, said: “We are committed to publishing strong female role models, and are immensely proud of having Priyanka Chopra on that list.”

Describing it as something that’s been on her bucket list, Chopra’s book will consist of personal essays, stories, and observations. When speaking about her upcoming memoir, Chopra said:
I was raised to be fearless when it came to opinions and I would like to tell my story in the hopes of inspiring people — especially women — to change the conversation, to shatter glass ceilings. Women are always told we can’t have everything. I want everything, and I believe anyone else can have it too. I’m proof of it.
The book is set to be released in 2019.
