Priyanka is quoted as saying, “I think I did. In India, it is hard not to. You’re right. With the swirling number of religions that we have, that live within the country as well. I grew up in a convent school. I was aware of Christianity. My dad used to sing in a mosque, I was aware of Islam. I grew up in a Hindu family, I was aware of that. Spirituality is such a large part of India that you really cannot ignore it,” when Oprah asks if she had a ‘spiritual foundation’ while growing up.

Priyanka said that she has a temple in her house in the US and she prays there, and it feels good to believe that there’s one higher power. “I am a Hindu. I pray, I have a temple at my home, I do it as often as I can. But truly to me, I am a believer that a higher power does exist and I like to have faith in that,” she says.
