Due to their parents’ (military doctors’) profession, they practically traveled all over the country, lived in Jamshedpur, Lucknow, Mumbai, Bareli.
And although the girl, together with her younger brother Sidhart, had to change her place of study, this did not prevent her from realizing her creative aspirations from early childhood. She tried herself in a drama studio, danced, wrote stories. When Priyanka reached adolescence, she decided to continue her studies in America.
She did well in school subjects. However, life at that time was a hard test for the girl because of racial intolerance. Her peers were often sarcastic about the color of her skin, laughed at the smell of curry and told to “get out of here. That’s what brought Priyanka back home from her senior year in Boston.
The girl was always distinguished by her rare beauty. There was a time when the father watched his daughter closely so that no one could hurt her. For her, he was always a super-reliable man, she dedicated him a tattoo on his wrist “Daddy’s baby”.
Mom was proud of the unusual appearance of her daughter and, secretly from her, sent photos to various contests. So, quite unexpectedly for himself, at the age of 18, Priyanka took part in the contest “Miss India” and became its finalist, and then won in London, becoming “Miss World” and surpassed more than a hundred competitors.
Later Priyanka confessed: “winning gave an opportunity to look at many things differently”, she still believes that this is “the story of the ugly duckling who one day turned into a swan”. Because the new title changed her life. The first time the actress starred in the Tamil movie “Thamizhan”, but no one remembers it.
Officially, the film debut of Priyanka is considered a melodrama “Love over the clouds,” released at a Bollywood film studio in 2003. The plot is built on a classic love triangle, the film also starred famous actor Akshai Kumar and “Miss Universe” Lara Datta.
The premiere was a success, for the best debut female role Priyanka Chopra was awarded the Filmfare Award. In 2004, she received another award for “Best Supporting Actress” for shooting the film “From Memories. It was a good start. Filmmakers vying with each other begin to offer roles, and the star’s film career is rapidly evolving. In the next 4 years, she starred in 24 more films. Most of them were commercially successful. But still, on top of the popularity in her native India Priyanka brought the movies “Captive of Fashion” and “Close Friends” (2008).
She entered the first tier of Bollywood stars. Every show business representative, having achieved success in their country, dreams to conquer Hollywood. Priyanka is no exception. In 2012, she signs a contract, and the Los Angeles agency begins to promote her in America. As a result, in 2015, she played an FBI agent suspected of a crime in the TV series “Base Quantico”. The series was broadcast on television during prime time, and a wide audience appreciated the actress’s performance. In 2016, she was voted Best Actress in Drama, receiving an honorary People’s Choice Awards. Now she’s popular in the United States as well.
When she launched the remake of “Rescuers of Malibu” in 2017. Priyanka is invited to play the role of the charming villain Victoria Leeds. Today Priyanka Chopra is involved in all areas of show business – she performs in the U.S. National Choir, leads a talk show, a column in the magazine “Elle”, is the face of cosmetic brands, has its own production company.
She has a singing talent. Her three singles, “In My City” (2012), “Exotic” (2013) and “I Can’t Make You Love Me” (2014), have garnered millions of views on YouTube.

Priyanka Chopra’s is 35 years old married. The star does not comment on her personal life, explaining that she wants to make a career first. However, the name of beauty is associated with various love stories.
It’s no coincidence that in 2016 she was voted the sexiest woman in the world by Maxim magazine. But the fact remains that the actress is having affairs on the job site. Therefore, it is understandable distrust of women whose husbands are involved in the same projects with her. For example, the actor’s wife Akshaya Kumara, suspecting him of a love affair with Priya, gave him a tough ultimatum.
The actors have not worked together. And the relationship with Shahrukh Khan is outraged by the Indian film community, which is clearly taking his wife’s side. Shahid Kapoor, Harman Bawaja, Ranbir Kapoor are also among the star’s boyfriends. Priyanka’s friendship with Gerard Butler, Tom Hiddleston, has been a source of suspicion for some time.
The celebrities themselves do not react in any way to these messages, and at the same time do not hide from prying eyes. Currently, the plans of Priyanka Chopra are scheduled for several years ahead.
“I know how to work, set goals and achieve them,” she explains. Apparently, this skill provides the actress with success and high ratings.
In early 2018, she started dating actor Nick Jonas. In August of the same year the couple got engaged during the shortest possible engagement ceremony “Rock”. On December 1 and 2 they had Christian and Indian weddings in Rajasthan.
