Priyanka Chopra: Woman of the Year

33 years old, 55 Indian films, one Hollywood film, four music singles and a Padma Shri. That is Priyanka Chopra. It isn’t her miss world crown, not her Desi girl style not even her star elements but her passion for cinema and every other work she does made her the favorite for the whole world in such short time.

PC won two awards from IIFA2016. One is ‘Best Supporting Actress’ for Bajirao Mastani and another is ‘Woman of the Year’. Her contribution to Bollywood and her accomplishments on international stage got her this pride.

Along with her debut into American TV sit com through ‘Quantico’, PC even bagged her first Hollywood film Baywatch, alongside Dwayne Johnson (known as The Rock). But 2016 she didn’t sign any Hindi films yet. While receiving the very special ‘Woman of the Year’, she talked about her objective while working in international films.

‘I may be on the cover of Time [Magazine] because of 100 most influential, People’s Choice Awards, Teen Choice Awards but I think there is such a long way to go. I’m still very new, I’m not even a year old in America. I’m literally ploughing the ground and making people understand that Indian actors are not a joke. People think we’re a spoof of Hollywood and we’re not. We’re one of the most prolific film industries in the world. We speak Hindi which is spoken in one country, but 40% of our business comes from outside of India.’

‘So many people from the west are coming in to India, all the studios have come in to India and they’re making films here, whether that’s Fox, Warner Bros, Disney, everyone. That stands as testament for us so why are we afraid of sharing our talent with the world? We must.’ She added.

Isn’t she a lady with a vision? We totally loved what she said. What about you?
