From bagging the crown at the Miss World 2000 pageant to landing the role of Alex Parrish in ABC’s TV series Quantico, Priyanka Chopra is indeed winning in life. A supermodel, a Bollywood star, recipient of a Padma Shri and finally…a woman of the world; needless to say, PC’s success has transcended swiftly over the years. To celebrate her hatching day, here’s a quick recap of Ms. Chopra’s star-studded years, starting from walking the ramp to striking a pose at the red carpets.
Here’s a young Priyanka feeling a rush of happiness upon receiving the honor of Miss World 2000. You can see a great deal of hope and humility in her eyes.
The early 2000s were a challenging time for the industry; their fashion wing wasn’t exactly ship-shape. But that didn’t stop Priyanka from chasing her dreams; she braved the sequins and the bling like a boss.
PC’s career in B-town kicked off with the sweet girl-next-door- role in Mujhse Shaadi Karogi to the sultry office boss in Aitraaz. Soon that year, films like Plan, Kismat and Asambhav lined up for her in that year.
By now, Piggy Chops had landed among the stars; the rising star bid goodbye to funny costumes only to say hello to co-stars like SRK and Hrithik Roshan as she was casted in Don and Krrish.
Priyanka’s portrayal of Meghna Mathur in Fashion was a wonderful look into the life of struggling models in India. She smack-dab hits issues that are prevalent in the fashion and glamour business.
Films like Anjaana Anjaani and Pyar Impossible! didn’t exactly turn out to be stellar, but Priyanka still earned more than a few brownie points for her efforts. Also, let’s not forget how much of a babe she looked in those cute shorts!
