Spotlight On: Priyanka Chopra

Priyanka Chopra has just appeared in a major way in the US market as the evil mastermind in Baywatch (for all of you Quantico fans – Priyanka has obviously been on your radar for a while). Besides being drop-dead-gorgeous, this woman has so much more to offer. She’s a triple thread – singing and producing movies besides doing the acting thing, was Miss World of the year 2000, has intensely worked with UNICEF in different capacities since 2006, started The Priyanka Chopra Foundation for Health and Education, etc, etc. No wonder Time Magazine named her as one of the top 100 most influential people in the world in April 2016.

Here’s a few lesser known fact about her (add anything we left out in the comments below!):

She released a single with Will.I.Am

 

She wanted to study aeronautical engineering – yes, that’s rocket science.

She’s in the Guinness World Records book for portraying 12 characters in one film (What’s your Raashee).

In 2008 everyone thought her acting career was over because six of the films she starred in flopped. (But she pushed through!).

Three of her films are among the highest grossing Bollywood films of all time (Don 2, Agneepath, and Barfi!).

She is the first South Asian to headline a US network series (Quantico), and she won two People’s Choice Awards so far for her role.

She’s an active feminist and advocate for gender equality.
