Pinyaka Chopra Jonas shares her ordeal with her botched nose surgery.
The former Miss World recalled her horrifying experience in 2000 that almost ended her blossoming career in the entertainment industry.
Moreover, she revealed that this left her feeling "devastated and hopeless."
In her recently released memoir titled "Unfinished," the 38-year-old actress shared that she went under the knife to address her breathing problem as she sought help from an expert who was recommended by a family friend.
At the time, the doctor discovered a polyp in her nasal cavity and advised her to have it surgically removed. Back then, the rising Bollywood star thought it was just an ordinary procedure.
"Fortunately, a polypectomy sounded like a pretty routine procedure. Unfortunately, it wasn't," she wrote, as obtained by People.

The Indian beauty, who is now married to Joe Jonas, recalled the devastating experience.
She shared that the doctor "accidentally shaved" the bridge of her nose that caused it to collapse.
In her words, she mentioned that her "original nose was gone" and that her "face looked completely different," adding, "I wasn't me."
It was a terrifying experience for her and her mom as it left her feeling "devastated and hopeless."
She mentioned that she lost her "sense of self or self-esteem" and thought she would never recover from the horrible experience.
Furthermore, Chopra Jonas also shared that she has gone through multiple corrective surgeries to adjust her nose; however, it wasn't enough.
Aside from her cosmetic blunder, Priyanka Chopra, who has just started her career in the industry, had to deal with the media scrutiny.
She was criticized for going under the knife and has been called some nasty names. At the time, the media labeled her as "Plastic Chopra."
Moreover, the "Isn't It Romantic" actress was all over the news and shared that the experience "has followed her entire professional life."
Although Chopra Jonas felt obligated to explain her side, she chose to "draw a line" and keep things to herself.
In her memoir, the "Baywatch" star cited that as an entertainer, this is what she signed up for and just had to suck it up and move on with her life.
The terrifying experience has pushed her to do her best and prove to the people that she is more than what they think.
"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," she wrote.
Despite her struggles, she now feels better and has gotten accustomed to her face.
She mentioned that she no longer feels surprised seeing herself in the mirror and has "made peace" with her past.
