Did “Unfinished” reach The New York Times Best Seller list?

A collection of personal essays, stories and observations by the author. Unfinished chronicles important moments in the author’ life and her twenty-year-long careers, such as working as an actress-producer and a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador.

Written by one of the world’s most recognizable women, renowned for her bold risk-taking, multiculturalism, and activism.

Readers looking for a glimpse into what it takes to succeed in the massive Indian film industry will find it here and they will also find an honest account of the challenges the author faced navigating her carrier. The result is a book that is warm, funny, sassy, inspiring, bold, and rebellious. Just like Priyanka herself.

Her writing is open, engaging, and full of energy. She writes, it seems, to connect. The experience feels intimate, like Chopra Jonas is exchanging stories with a friend over coffee.

Priyanka Chopra Jonas dedicated this book to her father and quoted the reason for the title of her book.

Dear Papa,

Much like the title of this book, your story was unfinished. With that in mind, I dedicate the rest of mine to you. I miss you Dad.
