Both, Incredible Story of A Global…and The Dark Horse are the unofficial biography. Chhabra further said, “I went through the process of talking to Anjula Acharya, who is her manager in the US and Priyanka’s team, as I set out to write this book. But after many, many messages and emails back and forth and conversations with her lawyers, I was told that she was doing a book of her own and her publishers had not allowed her to speak to another author.”

Chhabra in a talk with Peecee’s lawyer said, “I asked them whether this meant they’d disapprove of some things or suggest changes, and they said the latter. I spoke to my publishers and they agreed. But it all came down to the fact that eventually she wasn’t allowed to talk to me. So the plan for my book had to change.”

He further added, “At that time, she was shooting for the second season of Quantico and there was speculation about whether there would be a third season. But, already, there was a story to be told – of an Indian, top-of-the-rank Bollywood actress who had started out from a very small town, became Miss World and thereafter a big star in India and eventually crossed over to become a star in America. Nobody else had been able to achieve this the way she had.”

The biography written by him holds Priyanka’s childhood, her modelling career, Miss India and Miss World pageants and her key Hindi films and her career in America.
