Priyanka Chopra, in a recent campaign for Bulgari, talked about the first time she wore a mangalsutra and what it means to her. She said in the video, "I remember when I wore mine for the first time... because we have grown with the idea of what it means. It was just a very special moment for me. At the same time, as a modern woman, I also understand the repercussions of what it means. Do I like the idea of wearing mangalsutra or is it too patriarchal?" She added in the video, "But at the same time, I am that generation that's sort of in the middle. Maintain tradition but know who you are and what you stand for. And we'll see the next generation of girls might do differently."
