Priyanka Chopra – From Bollywood Sweetheart to Hollywood Superstar21 Jan 2020
Priyanka Chopra is an internationally renowned actress, singer and film producer. Considering her natural affinity with the arts, Priyanka was surprisingly uninterested in pursuing an acting career and was heavily involved in her studies with the idea of becoming a criminal psychologist or software engineer. Encouragement from her parents led her to enter and win the Miss India beauty pageant and eventually Miss World in the year 2000, propelling her into the Bollywood scene. After her screen debut in 2002 in the Tamil film ‘Thamizhan,’ Priyanka rose in prominence in India and abroad until eventually gaining the attention of Hollywood, where she got cast as the lead in Quantico, a political drama series that ran for three seasons. The multitalented actress now has dozens of awards under her belt, including 2 National Film Awards, 5 Filmfare Awards, 8 Producers Guild Film Awards, 8 Screen Awards and 2 People’s Choice Awards.
