Priyanka Chopra is the daughter of Madhu and Ashok Chopra, military doctors by profession. By their profession, Priyanka’s parents have to move often; this is how the young girl was able to study in American high schools.

Back in India in 2000, the beautiful Priyanka continued her studies at Jai Hind University in Bombay. However, she quickly gave up devoting herself to beauty contests. Thus, the sublime Indian won the Miss World contest in 2000.

She was spotted by Bollywood producers, fond of new talented beauties. The young woman, therefore, began her film career in 2002 in Thamizan where she could express her talent for comedy but also for singing.

However, Miss World must fight to progress and convince Bollywood filmmakers and producers that she is not just another pretty girl in an environment where competition is tough.

She manages to land important first roles in Plan or The Hero, an Indian James Bond and slowly begins to make a name for herself in Bollywood. She then won an award, the Filmfare Award (the Indian Oscars) for the best female hope, for Andaaz and continues the successes. Aitraaz once again allows him to win a Filmfare Award. The film is sort of a free replay of Barry Levinson’s Harassment.

In 2006, the actress reached the rank of a superstar when she went on to success with Krrish, Don or Fashion. In the latter, Priyanka embodies a very ambitious young woman who is ready to do anything to achieve her dream of becoming a top model.

The feature film is a triumph and allows the actress to raise a third time Filmfare Award for best actress. Very prolific in her country, Priyanka navigates between successes ( Kaminey, Voltage ) and failures ( Pyaar Impossible, Teri Meri Kahaani, Love Story 2050 ).

Priyanka returned to success in 2012 in the comedy-drama Barfi. She camps an autistic woman there and manages to demonstrate a new facet of undeniable talent. The film is a big success and Priyanka receives the favours of the public and the critics. In 2013, the actress starred in Mary Kom, a biopic on the famous boxing champion.

This Indian boxer started from nothing managed to win 5 times in a row the world boxing championship and the bronze medal at the London Olympics in 2012. Priyanka had to undergo intensive training to lend her features to Mary Kom. The young woman plunged body and soul into this role, even injuring herself under the eye during a combat sequence.

It was in 2015 that the career of the 33-year-old Indian bombshell took a decisive turn. She indeed becomes the main role of the spy TV series Quantico in which she plays a young recruit of the FBI, enough to start an international career.
