Priyanka Chopra is a star today â someone that every person out there aspires to be. From having supportive family to amazing friends in the industry, being on every directorâs wishlist and now even hanging out with one of the most desirable in Hollywood, Nick Jonas and his family, Priyanka Chopra has ticked all aspects in being a successful, powerful, independent, strong woman.
And she has even made her journey in Hollywood such a memorable one that everybody out here is envious and aspires to come somewhere close to her. Alas, not everyone can become the brand Priyanka Chopra, no matter how hard they try.
Coming from the streets of Jamshedpur, she started her journey with modelling, and was one of the most recognized as she won the Miss World 2000 pageant at the age of 18 (wow) after making Shah Rukh Khan speechless (double wow).
She eventually entered the film industry, and after working in Akshay Kumar starrer âAitraazâ, the actressâ fame shot up in one go. The two worked together in various films, including âWaqtâ and âMujhse Shaadi Karogiâ.
The latter also starred Salman Khan, who is once again set to work with the now global star in their upcoming film âBharatâ.
After Priyankaâs collaboration with Akshay ended reportedly due to the infamous sexual act which was caught by Twinkle Khanna, she found her success as Junglee billi in âDonâ series with Shah Rukh Khan and simultaneously, she established herself in Hrithik Roshan starrer âKrrishâ.
Soon after bagging âDonâ, Priyanka was seen in cameo appearances in Shah Rukh Khanâs movies. Among the many actors, she also featured in âOm Shanti Omâ song âDeewangi Deewangiâ followed by âRocking and Reelingâ in his production film âBilluâ, and she also made a cameo as a desi girl in SRKâs âdream projectâ âRa.Oneâ.
Meanwhile her career was seeing a little more boost as PeeCeeâs films were getting noticed â either because they were disasters or because it was hard-hitting and she nailed her performance in them.
After her infamous affair with Aseem Merchant, Priyanka Chopra was once again in news for allegedly dating Harman Baweja, her âLove Story 2050â co-star. The film and her relationship both were a huge disaster, which were followed by more disasters like âGod Tussi Great Hoâ and âDronaâ.
However all of this subsided right after she did âFashionâ, âDostanaâ and âKamineyâ. But there she was again â giving more flops like âWhatâs Your Raashee?â, âPyaar Impossible!â, post which she gave average movies â âAnjaana Anjaaniâ with Ranbir Kapoor and â7 Khoon Maafâ with various actors, including Irrfan Khan, John Abraham and Naseeruddin Shah.
The news reports later on suggested that Priyanka wasnât only impressing Shah Rukh Khan professionally but also personally as they were supposedly seeing each other. The news gained a new hype during âDon 2â promotions, where photos suggested how smitten SRK was with Piggy Chops.
And then there was no stopping Priyanka! She got noticed in popular movies like âAgneepathâ, âBarfi!â, âKrrish 3â, âGundayâ, âMary Komâ, âDil Dhadakne Doâ and of course, her last film before switching to Hollywood â Sanjay Leela Bhansaliâs âBajirao Mastaniâ. In that film, despite being a supporting actress, PeeCee stood out as the perfect Indian woman, Kashibai.
She was also in news for her dance numbers âBabli Badmaashâ from âShootout At Wadalaâ, âRam Chahe Leelaâ in âGoliyon Ki Rasleela: Ram-Leelaâ. Meanwhile, she also began her singing career by doing albums with international artists, which was her first step to Hollywood.
By 2016, Priyanka Chopra had moved to LA, becoming the face of TV series âQuanticoâ, bagging âBaywatchâ, âA Kid Like Jakeâ and âIsnât It Romantic?â, being the UNICEF brand ambassador, walking the Met Gala twice and dating one of the most desirable men Nick Jonas.
However, she didnât lose touch with India and in fact, gave her voice for the Marathi film âVentilatorâ, which was backed by her production house Purple Pebble Pictures.
Right now the actress is gearing up for âBharatâ, but before that, she is spending time with her love and his family on her birthday today.
They both have not yet made it official, but do we even need anything more when the two families have met the couple?
So, in the true sense, a small town girl Priyanka Chopra has become a global icon, all in 18 years and at the age of 36 years, setting major goals for everyone and asking them to dream out loud and fearlessly.
