Indian stars are conquering the international and national scene : The Bajirao co-stars have been extremely lucky this year- Deepika Padukone preparing for her role opposite Vin Diesel in xXx: The Return of Xander Cage and Piggy Chops who has been in news for her American series Quantico,and also presented an award at the 88th Oscars. But, it would seem it is PC who is making the biggest noise in Hollywood.
The 33-year-old actor, who is currently working on the second part of Quantico, presented an award at the 2016 Oscars along with international acting stalwarts like Quincy Jones, Reese Witherspoon, Steve Carell, JK Simmons and Jared Leto. *She couldn’t have asked for more*
Once upon a time…
A pretty baby girl was born in the ‘Steel-Land’ of India to the proudest parents today. Indian Army couple were always on the go so she completed her education from lot of places acquiring different degrees and being part of different cultures but still Bareilly remains real home to her. She trudged along La Martiniere Girls School in Lucknow to learn more about her education at Newton North High School in Newton Massachusetts and John F. Kennedy High School in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. After a while abroad, her urge to be back at her motherland and prove herself she joined Army School in Bareilly which still remains special to her and completed her graduation affair from Jai Hind College in Mumbai before starting her acting career. She also worked as a model which helped her win the ‘Miss World’ title in 2000.

She used to sing, dance and ‘ACT’…
Words would fall short while describing her stint in acting career. She has been wining these awards even before she entered the ‘Teja&Mona’ industry. She has won the National Honour roll in New York 97 Opus, has been the Honour Choir Representative for Iowa’s J.F.K., and has also bagged a prize for Extempore Speech and awards for singing and dancing during her early years. Filmfare and Screen awards are a must now! Piggy Chops has been a lootera since childhood. And now, after bagging the People’s Choice Award for ‘Quantico,’ she has made her Indian bro’s and Sis’s happy as well as nudged a new gateway like Marco Polo to enter the Hollywood Industry *Parineeti give it a shot, Will ya? ‘Didi is making us proud already’*
*Raise a toast #ThugLife *
Her Andaaz didn’t just keep her In My City…
I have a girl crush on Priyanka Chopra these days. Not just because, physically, she’s hysterically beautiful and brilliantly sexy; but because she’s done such a great job of diversifying the scope of her acting and singing talents, I was a flawlessly awed with the songs Exotic and In My City.
I’ve no idea how bagged that amazing role of Alex Parrish in series Quantico, but I think she did justice to it even when there was plenty of criticism flying around, about her inability to really soak herself in the character, the apparently forced-on accent and the occasional, though subtle revert, to the distinctive Indian accent.
We have every reason to be proud of Priyanka Chopra as an Indian ambassador in the global arena. She was crowned Miss World in 2000, has a flurry of commendable and widely appreciated Bollywood film roles under her belt since then, Pitbull and will.i.am were happy to collaborate on songs with her. She became the first South Asian woman to headline an American network show; for which she won the 2016 People’s Choice Award for Favorite Actress in a New TV Series, and was recently awarded the Padma Shri, the fourth highest civilian honour, by the Indian government.Priyanka Chopra was awarded the prestigious Padma Shri award by President Pranab Mukherjee at Rashtrapati Bhavan in New Delhi. After winning India’s fourth-highest civilian award, the Fashion actress who has made a career in Hollywood as well, said that she is trying to teach her international colleagues what Indians really are.
