Priyanka Chopra, 38, has shared another old picture of herself that almost makes her appear unrecognizable.

Priyanka Chopra shared another photo to social media where she did not look at all like she does today.

The Quantico star had on a white bikini top with matching slacks and her hair down as she smiled for the camera with her hands on her hips. She was in her late teens or early twenties at the time.

This comes after the 38-year-old wife of Nick Jonas shared in her new book that surgery on her nose due to a polypectomy altered her looks severely and made her the butt of jokes in her native India.

In this new flashback photo, the star looks slender and very confident which is why Chopra captioned the image: ‘Shy? Never heard of her.’

She added the photo was for Throwback Thursday and popped on the hashtag for Bindis And Bikinis.

At the time she was a budding model who was stepping into the Beauty Pageant circuit.

Last month she told readers of her new memoir Unfinished she was once picked on for her looks after a nose operation didn’t work out so well in the early 2000s.

That led to some haters calling the former beauty pageant queen ‘Plastic Chopra.’

She was a young adult when she noticed a benign growth in her nasal cavity that needed surgery to be removed.

‘Fortunately, a polypectomy sounded like a pretty routine procedure. Unfortunately, it wasn’t,’ she wrote in her book.

The surgeon ‘accidentally shaved the bridge of my nose and the bridge collapsed.’ And the star, who had already became famous in her native India for her looks, was left ‘horrified.’

‘My original nose was gone,’ Priyanka shared. ‘My face looked completely different. I wasn’t me.’

The bad surgery lost her work – she says in the book she was fired from two movies.

‘All the talk of body parts and skin tone collectively made me feel devalued and unseen and uncertain about my future,’ said the siren.

‘Having experienced the aftermath of a supposedly simple polyp removal, I knew I wasn’t willing to follow the course he’d laid out for me, even if he, as the highly successful expert, was right,’ she added.

‘… My difference is my strength. If I looked like other “classically beautiful” girls, then I wouldn’t stand out, and more important, I wouldn’t be me.’

Priyanka had ‘several corrective surgeries’ and has now ‘gotten accustomed to this face.’

‘Now when I look in the mirror, I am no longer surprised; I’ve made peace with this slightly different me…I’m just like everyone else: I look at myself in the mirror and think maybe I can lose a little weight; I think maybe I can work out a little more. But I’m also content. This is my face. This is my body. I might be flawed, but I am me,’ she added.

And at the time the red carpet favorite refused to explain what happened.

‘I was dared to give an explanation for the obviously different nose, but I chose a course then that I’ve followed in all the years since. I decided that there was a line I was going to draw in my life,’ wrote the wife of boy bander Nick Jonas.

She felt she did not owe anyone an explanation.

‘I am an entertainer,’ she began. ‘That’s what I’ve signed on to do, and that’s what I love doing. I will say my lines, dance my dance, hit my mark. I’ll do my best to make you laugh, and I’ll do my best to make you cry, but just because I’m a public person doesn’t mean everything about my life has to be public knowledge. I get to choose what I share and when I share it.’

But it wasn’t only her face that was under scrutiny, so was her body.

Also in February Chopra said she was told to ‘get a boob job’ and ‘add a little cushioning’ to her butt when she embarked on an acting career.

Priyanka Chopra talks challenges for South-Asian women in Hollywood

The White Tiger actress was told to overhaul her appearance after she won Miss World in 2000 and admitted she left the meeting with the unnamed director filled with doubt, particularly because her then-manager agreed with his assessment.

She wrote in her autobiography: ‘After a few minutes of small talk, the director/producer told me to stand up and twirl for him. I did. He stared at me long and hard, assessing me, and then suggested that I get a boob job, fix my jaw, and add a little more cushioning to my butt.

‘If I wanted to be an actress, he said, I’d need to have my proportions “fixed,” and he knew a great doctor in LA he could send me to,’ she wrote.

As a child: She said, ‘I wish I could rewind to the time when you looked like my baby brother,’ she said on social media

‘My then-manager voiced his agreement with the assessment,’ she added. ‘I left the director/producer’s office feeling stunned and small. Was he right that I couldn’t be successful unless I had so many body parts fixed?

‘I thought of how individuals in the media and others in the industry had referred to me as “dusky” and “different-looking,” and I wondered if I was cut out for this business after all.’

The star insisted her experience was ‘normalized’ in Hollywood and she was told to keep quiet about the incident if she wanted to enjoy a long career.

She told Metro.co.uk: ‘It’s so normalized that it doesn’t come up in conversation. I talked about a movie that I walked out of because of how I was spoken to by the director.

‘It was early in my career, but I never told him why I walked out. I never had the courage to stand up for myself, and actually admit it. Because I heard so often, “Don’t be a nuisance, you’re new in the industry, you don’t want to have a reputation that you cause trouble or you’re not easy to work with.”

‘Now on the other side of 35. I know that’s a normalized thing that girls hear so often.’
