Though the book will be available from January 19, 2021, pre-orders have started on Amazon. On Friday, the actor-cum-producer unveiled the cover of her memoir on Instagram. “Ironically, I named this memoir years before I started writing it. Having been a public person now for 20 years, with so much life to live and a long list of things to check off my list personally and professionally, I am very much #Unfinished. BUT the funny thing about writing a memoir is that it forces you to look at things differently, reconciling so many things you thought you had put to bed. In doing so I’ve realized that being ’unfinished’ has deeper meaning for me, and has in fact been one of the most common threads of my life,” she wrote.

The Sky is Pink actor hopes that after reading her book, fans will get the same motivation to “pick up, walk away, leave things unfinished and move on”. In another post, she wrote that her life wasn’t a fairytale and that she learned not to shy away from change.
“My parents taught me at a very young age to have courage of conviction, and I’ve never been ambivalent about this. I have always been guided by my curiosity, drive for challenge, and intrinsic need to constantly evolve and move forward. I have taken many leaps of faith, often times when I was advised not to…and even when I too was afraid,” she said. She also shared video montages of the biggest moments in her life, including winning the Miss World crown in 2000, her wedding, UNICEF visits and more.
The actor, who is in the USA, will be seen in Netflix’s adaptation of Aravind Adiga’s novel The White Tiger, co-starring Rajkummar Rao. Chopra has also signed two deals with Amazon Prime- Citadel and Sangeet. She will also star in We Can Be Heroes and a film with comedian Mindy Kaling. She also co-produced Amazon Prime Video’s Evil Eye.
